Lady Gaga Is Doing A Las Vegas Residency

December 19, 2017 / Posted by:

Vital Vegas claimed yesterday that MGM Resorts has signed Lady Gaga to a $100 million, 50-show residency at the Monte Carlo. They probably aren’t right about the $100 million part, but they were right about her residency, because she announced it today.. Congratulations, Gaga – you got to do something before Madonna did.

Gaga announced today that her residency will open December 2018 at Monte Carlo’s Park Theater and will be two years long.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal also has some information on Gaga’s residency. Their sources say she’ll do about 36 shows. They also claim that her rumored $100 million payday is “way off.” They believe she’ll make around $400,000 per performance, which is a little over $14 million for 36 shows. But Variety’s also got sources who are co-signing Vital Vegas’ claim. Their sources say Gaga’s deal is worth $100 million and that she’ll do 74 shows.

I know Las Vegas has stupid amounts of money to throw around, but $100 million for Lady Gaga? That breaks down to about $1.4 million a show. Even Celine Dion makes about $500,000 a show. The only way a Las Vegas Lady Gaga show is worth $100 million is if “Lady Gaga” is played by Celine Dion with special guests Britney Spears (as her alter-ego Joanne) and Barry Manilow (as her male alter-ego Jo Calderone). I would be the first in line to pay money for that.
