For her Revival Tour -- which kicks off Friday in Las Vegas -- Gomez is ready to be back on the stage and the center of attention. “This show is so centered around me, and I mean that in a way of confidence, of strength,” Gomez says. “It has a beautiful feel to it, but it is about me, so if I wanted to come in one day and say I want to change [a song in the show] or add this, I can do that. That’s the first time I’ve ever really been able to do that in my life. And I feel, I feel great about it. It’s not me making sure I hit all the dance moves.
“There’s so much I want to prove to myself for this tour and it’s just based on me, it’s based on my voice, it’s based on what I say to my crowd," she adds. "That’s all I really want.”

With regards to the set list for the show, the pop star says she had a “clear vision” for the tour: “Seventy percent of my audience are the people that I’ve had with me from the beginning, but I know that a big portion of [the crowd] will be people who’ve never been to one of my concerts before, so I obviously kept that in mind.”
Gomez says she’s very “excited” for fans to hear the new version of “Come and Get It” that she’ll be performing during the show, which is mostly focused around the Revival album. “We just sprinkled in only three old songs, so it’s just the new material, which is how I wanted it to be. We may add in a few things as well, surprise-wise, but we’ll figure it out.”
Gomez’s globe-trotting Revival Tour has shows scheduled through Dec. 18, with dates in North America, Asia and Europe.
