Lady Gaga has announced that she will be taking up a residency in Las Vegas. The residency will begin in December 2018 at the 5,300 cap MGM Park Theater.
The residency will contain 74 concerts, and could possibly be extended. In case you were unfamiliar with how lucrative these residencies can be, Variety is reporting that the deal is worth more than $100 million, with Gaga set to make over $1 million every show.
Ever since Lady Gaga wrapped up her North American headlining tour, rumors have been running wild. But on Tuesday, the “Million Reasons” singer confirmed the rumors to be true.
It’s been my lifelong dream to be a Las Vegas girl,” Gaga wrote on Twitter, promising a “brand new show.”

“It’s the land of Elvis, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, the Rat Pack, Elton John, Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli. It has been a life-long dream of mine to play Las Vegas. 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,” Gaga said via press release. “I’ll tell you exactly what I told my MGM and Park Theater partners – you can count on this performer always for one thing…I’ll leave my heart on the stage every single night. Thank you to my fans for always believing in me. Meet me in Las Vegas baby, we did it!”
Lady Gaga’s latest album, Joanne, was released in November 2016. Last month, Gaga received two Grammy nominations: Best Pop Vocal Album for Joanne, and “Million Reasons” also received a nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance.
