The Park MGM roster of entertainment continues to get stronger with the announcement of Lady Gaga’s return to Las Vegas. Academy Award, Golden Globe, and 12-time Grammy Award-winner, Lady Gaga, recently announced she will return to the Park Theater inside Park MGM in October.
Lady Gaga will be presenting her alternate Las Vegas residency show called “Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano”. This isn’t her massive full production residency show. Rather, in this performance, Lady Gaga will perform stripped-down versions of her hits alongside music from the Great American Songbook.
Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano shows will take place on the following dates this year:
- Thursday, Oct. 14
- Saturday, Oct. 16
- Sunday, Oct. 17
- Thursday, Oct. 21
- Saturday, Oct. 23
- Sunday, Oct. 24
- Thursday, Oct. 28
- Saturday, Oct. 30
- Sunday, Oct. 31
Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano Shows
This is a rare type of Las Vegas performance for Lady Gaga. She only performed “Jazz & Piano” shows nine times of 72 residency show performances at Park MGM. You can see a full show here and a sample from different below.
The mellower version of Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residency will coincide with her forthcoming album with Tony Bennett, ”Love For Sale”. It would not be a surprise to see Mr. Bennett join Lady Gaga on stage during one of these shows. As you can see above, they’ve performed together at Park MGM before.
The setlist from one of Lady Gaga’s shows in 2019 opened and closed with other performers’ hits from the past. She mixed in some of her popular hits throughout the evening.
Luck Be A Lady
Call Me Irresponsible
Orange Colored Sky
The Lady Is A Tramp
Cheek To Cheek
I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, Baby
Someone To Watch Over Me
Born This Way
Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)
What A Difference A Day Makes
La Vie En Rose
Just A Gigolo
Fly Me To The Moon
New York, New York
Coincidentally (or not), the New York-New York casino is about 100 steps across the street from Park Theater. The song placement probably isn’t a suggestion on where to go after the show but it’s not a bad idea.
Park MGM Remains Smoke-Free
The stereotype of vintage jazz shows is a smokey room. That won’t be the case for Lady Gaga’s Jazz & Piano shows at Park MGM. This is still the Vegas Strip’s only smoke-free casino resort on the Vegas Strip.
Park MGM wasn’t always smoke-free. It reopened this way after closing to slow the progress of coronavirus last year. While some Vegas Strip properties have non-smoking sections and tables, none are entirely without visitors smoking cigars or cigarettes.
Even though cannabis is legal to buy in Nevada, it’s not legal to smoke inside casinos or hotels. It may only be enjoyed at private residences at this time. Cannabis smoking lounges will be opening in the near future. You still won’t be able to smoke inside of a casino or hotel but you won’t have to be at a private residence.
