Lady Gaga took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce her plans for a 2-year residency at MGM’s Park Theater, set to kick off in December 2018.

“The rumors are true! I will have my own residency at MGM’s Park Theater,” the pop star tweeted, sharing several photos of herself signing the contract and celebrated with a champagne toast . “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!! #LasVegasGoesGaga.”

The “Bad Romance” singer is no stranger to performing on big stages. She just pulled out her elaborate productions on Joanne World Tour, played on Super Bowl halftime show and Coachella.

“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 honor of creating a new show unlike anything Vegas has ever seen before,” the 31-year-old singer-songwriter said in a statement on Tuesday. “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!”

According to Variety, Gaga will perform 74 dates with the probability of a longer run. The deal is estimated at almost $100 million, with the singer locking in $75 million over two years. The contract was negotiated by CAA’s Christian Carino and lawyer Kenny Meiselas of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks with Sonya Guardo.
