AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa is headed back to Las Vegas for another round of dates of her "Jazz & Piano" show at the Park Theater, Park MGM. The "Poker Face" hitmaker, who will kick off the show on October 14, is set to earn £750,000 per night.
GaGa will be playing nine dates this month as the run will wind up on Halloween, October 31. On top of her £750,000 per night fee, she will take home a percentage of merchandise sales.
According to The Mirror, the 35-year-old's wardrobe features custom-made designer gowns that "cost over $10m to assemble." At one point, she will entertain fans with a "tailor-made hand embroidered dress" boasting over 53,000 Swarovski crystals and 250 rock crystals.
About the "Jazz & Piano" residency, it will open with a recorded message from Tony Bennett. Aside from offering tribute to her "Love for Sale" collaborator, GaGa will pay homage to the likes of Frank Sinatra as well as Dean Martin.
"On the face of it GaGa's show may be expensive, but many executives would argue that it is worth every penny," Brodie Cooper of US entertainment agency PRrrpd (CORR) told the publication about the show. "Clients are not just coming to see her, but they often spending large sums on nicer hotel suites, meals out and then gambling or hitting the clubs."
"The spends are known to rise dramatically when GaGa and other A listers have show nights," Brodie added. "The Park itself having GaGa there is achieving huge publicity and promotion, which equates to the million of dollars in brand awareness worldwide."
GaGa first announced the dates of "Jazz & Piano" on August 23. "Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano. The Las Vegas Residency returning to @ParkMGM this October! Little Monsters pre-sale starts tomorrow," she wrote on Instagram at that time. "Sign up to receive the code at gagavegas.com. Tickets go on sale to the public Saturday at 10am PT."
The "House of Gucci" leading lady debuted the Las Vegas residency back in 2018. However, she put the show on hold in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
