A "pop-up" show on her "Bud Lite Dive Bar Tour" she had planned in Downtown Las Vegas days before the T-Mobile show was canceled (she stated she needed to rehearse for her world tour instead).

As expected, MGM Resorts International announced today that six-time Grammy Award victor Lady Gaga is set to begin a two-year, multi-date special engagement at the Park Theater in December 2018.

Lady Gaga shares a toast with Bill Hornbuckle, President of MGM Resorts International, after signing a Vegas residency deal over the weekend.


Lady Gaga tweeted the news announcing her residency. I'll tell you exactly what I told my MGM and Park Theater partners - you can count on this performer always for one thing... Then she has to get planning her Las Vegas show.

"It's been my lifelong dream to be a Las Vegas girl, I'm so overjoyed!" the singer wrote on Twitter following the announcement.

Her fifth studio album "Joanne" was recently released and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, marking her fourth consecutive No. 1 album - the first female to do so in the last seven years. She's now joined the steady stream of performers taking their talents to Las Vegas for extended runs such as Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. "Thank you to my fans for always believing in me".


The singer is the latest musician to have a Las Vegas residency.

The six-time Grammy victor is now in the middle of her Joanne World Tour.

The paper reports that Gaga was in the audience at Lionel Richie's residency show at the Axis theater at Planet Hollywood on Friday night - perhaps she was checking out the competition, or maybe watching an old pro show how it's done.
