Gwen Stefani Residency at Planet Hollywood Nears Announcement

The rumor’s been swirling in Vegas circles for some time, but now a Gwen Stefani residency at Planet Hollywood is nearing an official announcement.

Gwen Stefani is expected to perform a series of shows at the newly re-named, 7,000-seat Zappos Theater, formerly Axis. Before that, it was the Aladdin Theatre for the Performing Arts. Because you can never have too much useless Las Vegas trivia in your brain.

Details like a start date aren’t yet available, but compensation for the Las Vegas residency is expected to be what’s known in entertainment circles as “a metric hell-ton.”

Fun fact: Gwen Stefani once described us as “cute” to a mutual friend. We are not making this up.

Gwen Stefani follows in the shoes of Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez who have had extremely successful runs at Planet Hollywood.

Britney Spears did 249 performances of her “Piece of Me” lip-sync extravaganza, and the show generated a jaw-dropping $130 million in ticket sales.

There’s no word yet about whether Stefani’s show will feature any of her No Doubt band mates, although the show will most certainly include all the bands hits.

The Zappos Theater is booked by Live Nation, so you can visit this page once Gwen Stefani’s show dates are announced.

We’ve heard two confirmations about the Stefani residency from inside the Caesars Entertainment sphere, and PerezHilton.com also confirmed the scoop, so we’re saying it’s a done deal with an official announcement forthcoming soon.

Word from those familiar with the Gwen Stefani deal with Caesars Entertainment, owners of Planet Hollywood, is the singer could just as easily have ended up at Park Theater, owned by MGM Resorts. The two companies got into a bidding war, and Caesars Entertainment prevailed.

    Noticed on wikipedia that Stefani hosted a fundraiser with First Lady Michelle Obama in August 2012 at the singer’s Beverly Hills home. Awesome. Our stays are usually at Elara and we will certainly pay to be entertained by Stefani. Very good news.

        We don’t buy tickets unless we actually like the person who is entertaining us. For instance, I wouldn’t go to a Ted Nugent concert (not that Vegas would ever have him) if they paid me to take the ticket. Let me know if I can offer any further clarification.

            If you think this post is stupid, you should read some of my other ones. I found out a long time ago that no matter how stupid I am, I can’t please everyone. And to those I don’t please, I probably wasn’t aiming to please them anyway. It’s all the same to me; I get paid by the hour.

    Easy on the eyes and she has been around for more than 20 years, generating enough hits to headline a show in Vegas. Amazing. I’d never have guessed more than 20 years ago that the “Spiderwebs” gal would be making a nice chunk of change as a Vegas headliner decades later, or that she’d be as popular in her 40s as she was in her 20s. The world is a weird, unpredictable place.

    It appears that Planet Hollywood is booked thru 2018, with popular artist, not Gwen per office box office, so where is Gwen going to perform is this only a wish list again. Another DREAM
