Minogue set for Vegas residency

LONDON: Kylie Minogue is set to follow in the footsteps of Dame Shirley Bassey and Celine Dion by staging a Las Vegas residency.

The Aussie pop star has been thrilling fans in the U.S. this month (Oct09), with her first North American tour.

And the Spinning Around hitmaker has been approached to perform a string of shows in Sin City when her current trek finishes, according to her sister Dannii.

She tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "The response from her shows in America have been phenomenal. They love her out there. She was nervous about going over for the first time, but it has gone better than she expected.

"She has now been asked to take the show back to Vegas and extend it as a residency over there. I’m so proud of her. Kylie’s show is perfect for Vegas, it’s so theatrical. She has loved performing out there."

The 41 year old performed to a sell-out crowd in Vegas at the weekend (03Oct09), delighting celebrity fans including Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt.
