The rumors are true. After a successful year, Lady Gaga has confirmed that she’ll headline a running show in Las Vegas.
The star announced the news on Instagram by means of a series of photos with the explanation that they will begin a two-year residency at an MGM Resorts International place, formerly known as the Monte Carlo, in December. They promised the fans that they will result in a whole new show for those who travel to Sin City to see her, which means something that even the most diehard Gaga fans have never seen before.

The news comes after Gaga wrapped her hugely successful sold-out “Joanne World Tour” on Monday night in Los Angeles. In addition, she performed at this year’s most coveted location, the Super Bowl Halftime show. She is now a member of the steady stream of artists who use their talents to Las Vegas for longer runs such as Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion.
There are no details regarding the premiere dates of Gaga’s new show, but Entertainment Weekly notes the location of the official Instagram page names December 2018 as the start date, meaning fans have a year to organize, plan their trip to see Gaga’s new show.
“It is the land of Elvis, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, the Rat Pack, Elton John, Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli. It is a dream of mine to play in Las Vegas. I am humbled to be a part of a historic line-up of artists, and for the honor of creating a new show unlike anything Vegas has ever seen. I will tell you exactly what I told my MGM and Park Theater partners—you can count on this performer always for one thing…I let my heart on the stage every night,” Gaga told E! Online in a statement. “Thank you to my fans for always believing in me. Meet me in Las Vegas baby, we did it!”
