I cannot wait to bring you into ‘The Xperience.’”
“Christina is a powerhouse artist whose voice and music has transcended generations of fans,” said Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment at Caesars Entertainment. “We are proud Christina will call Planet Hollywood home and wow audiences in the intimate Zappos Theater.”
Aguilera impressed Caesars resort execs with her headlining appearance at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Oct. 27. She is set to enter into a headlining rotation with Gwen Stefani’s “Just A Girl” production, and open a little more than a month after the Backstreet Boys close their extended engagement after a two-year run on April 27.
