Las Vegas Residency Update: Lady Gaga, Aerosmith, Gwen Stefani, and more!

Posted by Vanessa Lotz | May 15, 2019 | Destination, Music

Las Vegas, Nevada is one of the Entertainment Capitals of the World for many reasons, ranging from the gambling and dancing, magic shows, world-class shopping and restaurants, to the rowdy pool parties.

Around here, we think that the residencies are what sets Vegas apart from the rest. While classic acts like Cher, Celine Dion, Donnie & Marie Osborne, and Prince set the stage for current-day artists to thrive on the Strip, we think that this year’s newcomers are opening up a new chapter in Las Vegas history for the genre and style of artists making a name for themselves in the international tourist-destination. Read on to see who you and your friends may be interested in seeing on your next escape to Sin City.

Enigma is a transcendent experience filled with vibrant colors and laser lights set to the rhythm of Lady Gaga’s biggest club bangers and electronic mash-ups.
