Katy Perry Residency Confirmed for Resorts World

Way back when things were relatively normal (Feb. 2020), we shared some scoop Katy Perry would have a residency at Resorts World.

That rumor has finally been confirmed. Thanks, Billboard, despite your irksome paywall.

Katy Perry’s residency at Resorts World is expected to begin toward the end of 2021 and will run into 2022, about a four-month run (although everything’s negotiable if a show’s a hit in Las Vegas).

Prediction: Katy Perry’s Las Vegas show will feature “Waking Up in Vegas.” We’re prescient like that. We’d actually put money on that being the name of her show.

Katy Perry’s show will run in Resorts World’s 5,000-seat theater, sorry, Theatre.

We exclusived the hell out of this Resorts World sign.

The deep pockets at Genting Group (owners of Resorts World) snagged the Katy Perry residency, but they weren’t the only suitor(s).

Perry was also wooed by MGM Resorts, and she is rumored to have stayed at the Mansion at MGM Grand during the holidays of 2019 as she was being unsuccessfully sweet-talked.

Few confirmed details are available about the specifics of the Katy Perry residency at Resorts World, but the headline-making booking should provide a nice awareness bump for the resort that opens in summer 2021.

Among the rumors floating about the residency: Her show will be circus-themed, like her most recent album, “Smile.”

There are also some rumblings Perry could follow in the footsteps of Lady Gaga with two versions of her show. Gaga did one over-the-top extravaganza (as Perry’s is expected to be), as well as a more intimate version.

Dismiss our drunken Tweets at your own peril.

As we’ve shared (also more than a year ago), Celine Dion is also expected to have a residency at Resorts World, and a number of other high-priced (sorry, world-class) performers will reportedly be joining the line-up of talent. Money is no object in Las Vegas!

Resorts World is making a play to become a heavy-hitter in Las Vegas entertainment, and Katy Perry’s residency is just the beginning.

    The name meant nothing to me so I had to look her up, which is probably a good sign. I don’t do very well recognizing movie actors or professional sports figures, either.
    Here’s the link for anyone in a similar situation. When she was a kid, she wasn’t allowed to eat Lucky Charms cereal because the name reminded her mother of Lucifer. I wouldn’t make stuff like this up.

    They must be trying to attract has beens 20 somethings. She will probably end up at Virgin hotel as it would be a better fit.
