Lady Gaga made it official. She is moving to Las Vegas.
On Tuesday, the pop star announced her upcoming two-year residency in Vegas. “The rumors are true!” she tweeted.
Gaga will take the stage at 5,300-seat Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas beginning in December 2018.

“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!”
Gaga, who wrapped the North American leg of her Joanne World Tour Monday night in Los Angeles, is the latest in a long line of celebrities who’ve turned to Sin City for steady performance dates, including Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, and Celine Dion.
Further details regarding Gaga’s Vegas residency — including a number of shows and an exact launch date — have yet to be announced, though the Park Theater’s official Instagram account indicates a debut is in store for December 2018.
Gaga has a big year ahead. Her Joanne World Tour wraps in February in Berlin and on May 18, she will headline the remake of A Star is Born, directed by Bradley Cooper. The film marks Cooper’s directorial debut.
