This Is How Much Lady Gaga Is Getting Paid for Her Las Vegas Residency, Plus What You’ll Pay to Get Tickets to the Show

Lady Gaga’s much-anticipated Las Vegas residency will kick off on December 28, 2018, at the Park Theater at the Park MGM. The 27-date residency will run through November 8, 2019, and includes two shows: Lady Gaga Enigma and Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano.

Enigma will be “a brand-new odyssey of [Gaga’s] pop hit built as an experience unlike any other.” Jazz & Piano “will feature stripped-down version of her hits as well as music from the Great American Songbook.”

“We’re creating a show unlike anything I’ve done before,” Lady Gaga said in a statement. “It will be a celebration of all that is unique and different within us.”

Stars once sneered at the idea of signing up for a Las Vegas residency — a standing gig in Sin City was a sure sign your career was on the downswing. But after Celine Dion made millions with her popular and hugely successful A New Day… residency, which started in 2002, they started singing a different tune. Since then, everyone from Britney Spears to Elton John has set up shop in Vegas for an extended period.

Big-number deals for residencies are common now, but the money Gaga is commanding is in another category entirely. She’ll be taking home more than $1 million per show, Variety reported in 2017, shortly after the residency was announced. She’ll also likely get a 50% cut of any merchandise sales.

To put those numbers in perspective, Britney Spears, an established Las Vegas draw, is reportedly getting $500,000 per show for her next residency. She’ll also perform at the MGM’s Park Theater, starting in 2019. Her “Piece of Me” residency at Planet Hollywood earned more than $137 million over 248 shows.

Gaga’s getting so much for her residency that industry insiders aren’t convinced the number add up for MGM Resorts, which owns the 5,200-seat Park Theater, Variety reported. Overall, the “Joanne” singer’s deal is said to be worth close to $100 million.
