Everything You Need to Know About Lady Gaga's Las Vegas Residency
Lady Gaga just gave us way more than a million reasons to be excited today. "The Cure" singer is joining the ranks of legendary diva icons like Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, and Shania Twain by headlining her very own Las Vegas residency at Sin City's Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino's Park Theater at the new Park MGM resort. As if that wasn't exciting enough, Gaga is going to have TWO special experiences for fans: Lady Gaga Enigma and Lady Gaga Jazz and Piano.
If you're looking for an electric night out, Enigma sounds like the show for you; that part of her residency is described as "a brand-new odyssey of her pop hits built as an experience unlike any other." She'll perform Enigma on Dec. 28, 30 and 31 of this year, before her 2019 dates begin, which are as follows: Jan. 17, 19, 24, 26, and 31 ; Feb. 2; May 30; June 1, 6, 8, 12, and 14; Oct. 17, 19, 23, 25, and 31; Nov. 2, 6, and 8.
Jazz and Piano, however, will feature stripped-down versions of her biggest songs, as well as "music from the Great American Songbook." (Something tells us Tony Bennett might make an appearance during the latter.) You'll be able to catch this particular show on Jan. 20, Feb. 3, June 2, and June 9.
"I can't wait to share Enigma with all of my fans and with Las Vegas," Gaga said. "We're creating a show unlike anything I've done before. It will be a celebration of all that is unique and different within us. The challenges of bravery can be overcome with creativity and courage that is grown out of adversity, love and music."
Gaga first announced the incredible news back in December, when she donned a glam pink satin dress and a bedazzled baseball hat with the word 'Vegas' on it to sign her new contract, which she documented on Instagram.
"The rumors are true!!!!!" she captioned one shot before thanking the MGM executives who helped bring about the deal. "Thank you Richard, Bill and Chris for making my dream come true! I was made for this town, and I can't wait to light up the Park Theater like never before!" In a series of other photos she added, "I am SO HAPPY and excited beyond belief to make my own brand new show here with my new Vegas family . . . And I couldn't have done it without my amazing fans, little monsters and team. We love you so much. Meet me in Las Vegas!! This is just the beginning of a new era! And thank you to the best manager in the world @wanaynay on the right I love you!"
The deal came at the end of a landmark year for Gaga. Despite ongoing health problems in 2017 stemming from her injured hip, the superstar performed at the Super Bowl halftime show in February, released a new album, went on a jaw-dropping tour, dropped a heartbreaking Netflix documentary about her life, performed at the American Music Awards, and got engaged to Christian Carino.
There's no word yet on what her show will actually entail, but knowing Gaga, the set list, stage design, and costumes are going to be out of this world.
