MGM debuts new Lady Gaga Vegas residence premium package

Global superstar Lady Gaga is one of the music industry’s best-selling artists with over 120 million albums sales under her belt. Gaga and her casino partner, MGM Resorts, have introduced an exclusive experience package for her most fervent fans who are sure to shell out top dollar to witness her residency show on the Las Vegas Strip.

Stellar perks

Gaga’s MGM Park Theatre gig has run since 2018. And fans will be thrilled to learn that she returns this October for a nine-show residency.

The top-tier tickets are well beyond the means of regular fans, but worth it for those who can afford them as they include overnight accommodations at an MGM Resorts casino and resort credit that can be redeemed for various amenities and services. Of the five available VIP packages, the highest-priced is valued at an astounding $10 619.

The premium “I Want Your Everything” package is an exclusive offer that covers up to four people and includes three nights in a penthouse suite at either the Bellagio or Aria hotels.

Holders of these prized tickets will also obtain VIP entry to the Park Theatre, a dedicated cocktail server for the show, a welcome snack basket, and a Lady Gaga ‘swag bag’ that includes four commemorative show lanyards and credentials.

Split four ways, the package comes to $2,655 per person before taxes and resort fees. It additionally comes bundled with $500 worth of food and beverage credit as well as a $250 spa credit.

The new Lady Gaga’s Park MGM residency is called “Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano.” The experience includes stripped-down editions of her hit singles, paired with music from the Great American Songbook. This term refers to compositions from Broadway musical theatre, Hollywood movie musicals, and Tin Pan Alley.

The residency

MGM Resorts is the largest casino operator on the Strip and is advertising its premium VIP ticket packages for Lady Gaga as the “Back in the Haus” promotion. The Las Vegas Review-Journal stated that the $10,600+ “Everything” package is the most expensive ticket going for a Las Vegas residency in MGM Resorts’ entire history in Southern Nevada.

The nine Park MGM performance dates are scheduled for October 14, 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 28, 30, and 31. MGM requires all ticketholders to provide CDC-compliant proof that they are fully vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test that was conducted within the past 72 hours.

Everyone will also have to use the CLEAR mobile app, where they can upload and store their vaccination records and coronavirus test results.

Back in business

Las Vegas has returned to a state of bustling vibrancy, albeit with some changes. Measures like the reimplementation of mask mandates for all people indoors have resulted in some guest cancellations, but Southern Nevada is lively nevertheless.

Nevada casinos recently reported record monthly gross gaming revenue (GGR) in July that showed players lost $1.38 billion to the house. $1.16 billion of this amount can be attributed to Clark County and the Las Vegas Strip.

Domestic travel restrictions have been lifted and MGM believes that the return of travellers has created the perfect timing for the introduction of the premium VIP ticket packages. Those of humbler means will also be able to enjoy the show as there are more affordable options than the “I Want Your Everything” premium offer.

At the lower end of the pricing is the “Gaga, Oh La La” offer that costs $2 249 for two people. This package includes two nights in a king or queen room at Park MGM, two floor tickets for the Lady Gaga show, and a $200 food and beverage credit.
