On Tuesday (October 10), Aguilera announced that her upcoming run will start on New Year’s Eve weekend (December 30 and 31) at the new Voltaire Belle de Nuit at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. The short residency will feature a slew of Aguilera’s biggest hits from across her 20 year career.

“I look forward to bringing Las Vegas a new show that fuses music, sophistication and art in ways I have never performed before,” Aguilera said in a statement. “What I love about the intimacy at Voltaire at The Venetian Resort is how up-close-and-personal I can be with the audience … a truly modern twist on the performance experience.”

More dates for the ‘A Truly Modern Twist’ live series will be announced this Friday (October 13). Tickets for Aguilera’s New Year’s Eve weekend Voltaire shows go on sale on the same day on Voltaire’s website.

Voltaire’s founder Michael Gruber shared in a statement that the venue’s goal is to create “superstar artist experiences in Las Vegas” and that the “incredibly talented” Aguilera will help “highlight that Voltaire experience.”

‘A Truly Modern Twist’ is the second Las Vegas residency Aguilera has done. The Grammy Award-winning singer took over the Zappos Theater that spanned from May 2019 to March 2020.

In an Instagram post, Aguilera told fans that they will be able to “immerse yourself in the fusion of art and music” at her shows.

She continued: “I’m bringing an intimate, seductive and sophisticated new show to Las Vegas. [Voltaire] will allow me to be up-close-and-personal with YOU for a truly modern twist on the performance experience.”
