It’s time for everyone to practice their “P-p-p-poker Face”—because Las Vegas will have an exciting new resident in 2018! On Tuesday, Lady Gaga confirmed the rumors about her potential residency.
She will be in residence at the Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino’s Park Theater. Her run will begin in December 2018, and last for at least two years (though there is a possibility of a longer stay). So, it seems the six-time Grammy Award winner, Golden Globe Award-winner and Academy Award nominee will be laying down some roots in Sin City.
“The rumors are true!!!!!” the star wrote on Instagram, sharing this photo:
We already know Gaga has her Poker Face down. So, it comes as no surprise that she’s as excited as fans to perform on the Strip.
“It has been a life-long dream of mine to play Las Vegas,” she shared in a press release from MGM Resorts International. “I am humbled to be a part of a historical line-up of performers, and to have the honor of creating a new show unlike anything Vegas has ever seen before.”
It may be a dream come true for Gaga, but fans have hit the jackpot, too. The superstar will perform 74 concerts at the Park Theater. The intimate theater has 5,300-seats, and each one is no farther than 145 feet from the massive stage. In fact, it’s one of the widest stages in the world.
Before taking the Park Theater stage next December, Gaga will wrap up her Joanne World Tour. She has 18 shows left in cities across Europe. Her Las Vegas performance dates and tickets will be announced in the next few months.
“You can count on this performer always for one thing…I’ll leave my heart on the stage every single night,” Gaga said in a statement. “Thank you to my fans for always believing in me. Meet me in Las Vegas baby!”
