Katy Perry has officially announced her Las Vegas residency, Play. “It’s a 🍄 TRIP 🍄 to finally be able to announce my brand new show #ᑭᒪᗩY a Las Vegas residency, opening Dec 29 2021 @ The Theatre @ResortsWorldLV,” she tweeted, along with a psychedelic snippet of “Waking Up in Vegas.” Meeting up with Perry in Vegas are three other music superstars who will each host residencies at Resort World later this year: Céline Dion, Carrie Underwood, and Luke Bryan. Dion, a Vegas legend, boasts a ten-week engagement opening on November 5 with a show that will benefit COVID-19 relief. Then, Underwood, Perry, and Bryan follow in December, January, and February respectively, with Perry beginning in time for New Year’s Eve. Tickets go on sale May 24 for those of you are already planning post-immunization vacations.
The residency will take place at The Theatre venue inside the Resorts World complex, which has a 5,000-person capacity. Per Electronic Vegas reports, Katy Perry will be making $168 million from this residency contract. In this residency, Katy will be reportedly performing two nights a week for a period of four months.
If the success of other pop stars in Las Vegas serves as any indication, Katy Perry will cash in a lot of money and make a lot of fans very happy with this new project.
