Ahead of the residency, Christina did a photoshoot with Galore Magazine, per The Inquisitr. The seductive shoot saw the “Keeps Gettin’ Better” songstress strip in skimpy outfits while she oozing Hollywood glamour. The theme for the shoot was very old-school glamour and was reminiscent of the Back To Basics album she released in 2006. In a series of multiple uploads, Xtina served many different looks in multiple garments.
Recently, Xtina has been embracing the touring life, but she took a long break from the stage after having children. The Inquisitr reported the “Fall In Line” entertainer admitting she was scared to tour after having her first son.
Earlier this year, The Inquisitr revealed that the “Ain’t No Other Man” entertainer would be embarking on her first international tour in 13 years.
For Vegas, she is set to perform 16 shows until October. The first leg will end on June 16 and the second leg will commence on September 20.
