AceShowbiz - Rumors have been swirling around that Gwen Stefani will head to Las Vegas for a residency, and it turns out to be true. The songstress confirmed on social media that she would be launching her residency called "Just a Girl" at the Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood starting on June 27.
"To be able to do a show in Vegas is such an incredible honor. Growing up in Anaheim, California, I could never have imagined one day having my own Vegas Residency," she said in a statement. "I have been so fortunate to tour throughout my career, but to create a show for Vegas is something I've never experienced and I can't wait."
As of now, the residency consists of 25 dates spread out from June 2018 through March 2019. It remains unknown if she will extend the dates in the future. Tickets will go on sale to general public on Friday, April 13 at 10 A.M. PT.
In addition, Gwen has teamed with Live Nation and Caesars Entertainment to donate $1 of every ticket purchased to the Cure 4 the Kids Foundation, a Las Vegas-based nonprofit organization which provides medical treatment to children facing a number of life-threatening conditions.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Gwen actually had considered heading to Las Vegas for a while, adding that she wanted to make sure her boyfriend Blake Shelton and her three sons were on board with it.
"Blake felt she should take it. He wants her to express through music and grow as an artist. He thinks it's a great career move," the source noted, before revealing that the country singer "has assured Gwen that he would always visit her when she performs, which is comforting."
A second source added that Blake would be babysitting her three sons when she hits the stage. "He is going to use the time to have fun and spoil them," the insider told HollywoodLife.com. "Plus, her kids are used to her schedule and these Vegas commitments will not be a cause of concern in any way with ex Gavin Rossdale, Blake, or the kids. All that has been taken care of and everyone is excited."
