Little monsters in Vegas, rejoice! Lady Gaga took to Twitter yesterday to confirm the rumors about her Las Vegas residency at MGM’s Park Theater.
Lady Gaga tweeted: “The rumors 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! LOVE YOU LITTLE MONSTERS WE DID IT, MEET ME IN Las Vegas!! #LasVegasGoesGaga.”
For a deal that is valued at nearly $100 million, the pop star is reportedly set to perform 74 dates with the possibility of a longer run. This means Lady Gaga gets a million-plus dollars per show. In comparison, Britney Spears’ renewed two-year contract with Planet Hollywood was at around $30 million. Britney’s “Piece of Me” show started in December 2013, and has since grossed more than $135 for a total of about 249 shows. Jennifer Lopez also has her “All I Have” Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood, which began on January 2016 and is set to end on September 2018; she reportedly makes $350,000 per show.
During the signing of the deal, Lady Gaga had a toast with Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International, as well as with Chris Baldizan SVP of entertainment booking and development MGM Resorts and Richard Sturm, president and COO of sports and entertainment. | Photos from Lady Gaga's Twitter account
The deal was led by attorney Kenny Meiselas of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, with Sonya Guardo and CAA’s Christian Carino.
Britney’s Vegas residency is about to end this month, while Lady Gaga’s is anticipated to start in late 2018.
