Katy Perry just announced a Vegas residency that starts Wednesday
Pop icon Katy Perry is going the way of Adele, Celine Dion, and myriad other famous singers, and will be hosting a residency in Las Vegas starting Dec. 29.
The singer announced details of the show Play Las Vegas on Twitter on Monday, following earlier teases on social media.
She’ll be performing at the Resorts World Casino through March 19 of next year. Tickets range in price from $350 in the mezzanine to more than $4k for front row VIP tickets. The venue has created a websiteproviding more details on the residency:

Perry has been promoting the residency on her social media pages, sharing videos of costumes, props and puppets. She said the show was inspired by the movies Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.
For example, she shared a video of what looks like a talking armchair.
On her website, Perry, 37, said the show will be an “all ages transcendent sensory experience with vibrant visuals and numerous surprises.”
So she doesn’t have to (or, rather, her social media team doesn’t have to) do all the social media heavy lifting, there’s a fan account dedicated to the show that’s about to launch.
Perry has been in and out of the spotlight the past few months. Earlier this year, she covered for Ellen DeGeneres and hosted the The Ellen Show.
“Right now, actually, Ellen is filling in for me. She’s at home breastfeeding my child,” she said during the monologue. She then mentioned that she’s appeared on the show 11 times, but didn’t realize it “because I was so drunk in my 20s.”
The singer also has a baby girl named Daisy with actor Orlando Bloom. She recently said that being a mother and being a pop star were weirdly similar.
“You’re up all night, usually holding a bottle of some kind. There’s vomit on the floor. And your boobs are always out,” she said.
Bloom and Perry had Daisy in August of last year. They are very protective of their child and there aren’t many official pictures of the baby floating around. However, they do sometimes share other details, like the time Bloom was fixing up the nursery.
Perry is slated to perform two times a week for the duration of the residency. She’ll also appear in the 20th season of the singing competition show American Idol.
