This is a celebration of an album - 18 number ones, a new album - number one to infinity and that's the name of the show here at Caesars '#1 to Infinity'. I can't wait to sing all the hits for you guys on stage here right here at Caesars Palace. So it's out today, Infinity, 'hashtag' Infinity and I just wanted to say I wouldn't be anywhere without my fans and I will never, ever, ever, ever forget that so thank you so much. Thank you to all the folks here at Caesars and to everyone in Las Vegas, there's a new girl in town, you'll be seeing me walking around and spending my time with you when I can.
