Britney who? Lady Gaga announces two-year Las Vegas residency

It's official!

Lady Gaga last night confirmed details of a two-year-long Las Vegas residency at MGM's 5,300-seat Park Theatre.

Following in the footsteps of fellow artists Britney Spears, Elton John and Shania Twain, the Born This Way singer has vowed to leave her “heart on the stage every single night”.

The residency is scheduled to begin in December 2018 and Gaga can hardly contain her excitement.

"It has been a life-long dream of mine to play Las Vegas," she said in a statement announcing the shows.

"It's the land of Elvis, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, the Rat Pack, Elton John, Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli."

"I am humbled to be a part of a historical lineup of performers, and to have the honour of creating a new show unlike anything Vegas has ever seen before."

According to Variety, the star looks set to earn over $75m during the 74-day residency.

The 31-one-year has spent most of 2017 touring her latest album, Joanne, though she had to postpone some dates after experiencing "severe physical pain" arising from the medical condition fibromyalgia.
