Lady Gaga confirms 74-date Las Vegas residency

Following the likes of Britney and Celine Dion

Lady Gaga has announced she will be taking up residency in Las Vegas for a series of shows spanning 74 dates, beginning in December 2018. 

The singer was recently forced to postpone her UK and European tour in support of latest album ‘Joanne‘, only days after she cancelled a concert in Rio due to “severe physical pain”. The singer has been vocal about her battle with Fibromyalgia, a condition which causes chronic pain to spread across the whole body.

Gaga confirmed the rumoured residency on Twitter, writing: “The rumours are true! I will have my own residency at MGM’s Park Theater. Get ready for a brand new show! It’s been my lifelong dream to be a Las Vegas girl, I’m so overjoyed!”

In a statement, the singer added that she would “leave my heart on the stage every single night”.

Variety reports the run will begin with 74 dates, but could extend to more. Gaga is said to be earning more than $1 million (£750k) per show.

Other artists set to take the Park Theater stage in 2018 include Bruno Mars and Cher.

Back in October, Lady Gaga joined artists such as Moby and Ariana Grande in a call for increased gun control following the deadly shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and injured over 500.
