Global popstar Kylie Minogue will be making her way back to the States this fall to open Sin City’s newest nightlife destination. The Australian singer-songwriter will headline her first-ever U.S. residency at Voltaire, a 1,000-capacity venue at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

Voltaire is set to open on Nov. 3 and comes from the vision of producer Michael Gruber, who envisioned a location that serves as the pregame, main event and late-night after-party.

“Voltaire will lead a revival in high-caliber nightlife giving guests an unexpected night out, but also the opportunity to see some of their favorite artists in an intimate way,” Patrick Nichols, president and chief executive officer of The Venetian Resort, said in a statement.

Minogue’s residency begins not long after the Sept. 22 release of her new album, Tension, which features the hit single “Padam Padam.” With Voltaire’s offerings of non-stop entertainment that features DJs, cabaret and burlesque, Gruber felt Minogue was a perfect choice to open the venue.

“Everything about Kylie reflects the essence of Voltaire,” Gruber said in a statement. “Her music is fun. Her spirit is absolutely infectious. And she’s at the top of her game, which makes this a truly special moment for fans to connect in such an intimate environment.”

Minogue added, “The spirit of Voltaire is one of pure, authentic fun. It’s one I resonate with as a pop artist. My new album Tension is all about the space where the intimate and universal come together and Voltaire represents just that.”

Creative minds in fashion and design had a hand in developing couture costumes, and Emmy and Tony Award-winning production designer Derek McLane developed the space with “an immersive key-hole themed room design, centered around modern-day art-deco fantasy.”

“I really wanted it to feel like an escape from the environment of the casino floor,” McLane said. “Something that felt like a completely different world. An intimate, exciting, and inviting world.”

Tickets for Minogue’s residency go on sale Aug. 9 and can be purchased at

Since April 2002, Minogue has reported 118 headline shows to Pollstar and grossed $182.88 million off of nearly 2.3 million tickets sold. The pop icon performed two sold-out shows at Edinburgh Castle in Scotland in July 2019 and sold 16,906 tickets, earning her $1.35 million.
