Kelly Clarkson is headed to Vegas in 2020! The singer announced on Friday (Nov. 1) that she has plans for a 16-date Kelly Clarkson: Invincible residency at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood beginning in April. The show will be sprinkled throughout the summer months, wrapping with five dates in September.

Clarkson tells Billboard that the residency presents the perfect chance for her work in some live shows during a year when her busy schedule makes it difficult to mount a full tour. In addition to her singing career, she will be juggling her role as The Voice judge, her talk show and more.

"I have so many jobs right now and they all involve me being located in L.A.," she explains. "I love everything I'm doing, but the one thing that bummed me out was that I am so busy I'm not able to tour. Vegas was the perfect option for me to still be able to do shows and play music and see the fans."

Vegas has become an important stop for A-list artists of all description, many of whom use their residencies as a chance to explore new show formats and setlist options. Clarkson goes on to say that she's excited about the possibilities for her own upcoming run.

"I'm able to do things with this show that I've never been able to carry out on the road. We get to stay for a bit, see and hang with fans, and then you're not having to travel every night to a different city, which can be exhausted," she continues. "I'm stoked to have a home away from home [in Vegas.]"

Plus, she tells Billboard, planning a residency has been an important moment for many of the artists she looks up to, so she's excited to launch her dates there. "Musicians from any  genre of music, young and old, rookies and legends, it's just become this fantastic city filled with artists from everywhere," Clarkson adds. "So many of my musical idols have had, and still have, incredible residencies on the Strip, and I'm so excited to create my own."
