Well it's official: Lady Gaga is heading to Vegas.

The 'Million Reasons' singer has confirmed that she's following in the footsteps of stars like J-Lo, Britney and Mariah with a two-year residency show in Sin City, starting December 2018.

Gaga will play a series of shows at MGM's Park Theatre, which already boast residencies from the likes of Bruno Mars and Cher.

Confirming the news on Twitter on Tuesday, Mother Monster wrote: "The rumors are true! I will have my own residency at MGM’s Park Theater. Get ready for a brand new show!!

"It’s been my lifelong dream to be a Las Vegas girl, I’m so overjoyed! LOVE YOU LITTLE MONSTERS WE DID IT, MEET ME IN Las Vegas!"

In an official statement, the 31-year-old star added: “It’s the land of Elvis, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, the Rat Pack, Elton John, Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli,”

“It has been a life-long dream of mine to play Las Vegas. I am humbled to be a part of a historical line-up of performers, and to have the honour of creating a new show unlike anything Vegas has ever seen before.

“I’ll tell you exactly what I told my MGM and Park Theater partners: You can count on this performer always for one thing…I’ll leave my heart on the stage every single night.

“Thank you to my fans for always believing in me. Meet me in Las Vegas, baby, we did it!”

The news comes weeks after Gaga was forced to call off her six-week European leg of her Joanne World Tour in September, which she later rescheduled forearly in the new year.

The star's next project is a starring role in Bradley Cooper's big screen remake of 1930s musical classic A Star Is Born, which is set to hit cinemas in Spring.
