After cancelling the last ten shows of her, ‘Joanne World Tour’ due to health issues earlier this year, Lady Gaga has returned with a bang. The Born This Way singer has announced her residency at the Park Theater in Las Vegas. It is scheduled to begin on December 28, 2018 and will be ending in November of 2019.

Lady Gaga has a way with words which has helped her write four hit albums, ‘Born This Way,’ ‘Artpop,’ ‘Cheek to Cheek’ and ‘Joanne.’ All of these records topped the Billboard 200 and brought her way massive commercial and critical success. Out of these studio efforts, ‘Born This Way’ marked her second album to record multi-platinum sales in the States and it also made Rolling Stone’s list of the, ’50 Best Albums of 2011.’ You can expect Gaga to perform some of her biggest hits from these four records including, The Edge of Glory, Applause, Do What You Want and Million Reasons live when she hits the Sin City.

- She doesn’t lip sync
One thing which makes a Lady Gaga concert even more exciting is that she doesn’t lip sync. During an interview with Extra in 2015, she said this,
