Gaga in Advance

Lady Gaga’s Aug. 13 concert at the MGM Grand may be months away, but that hasn’t stopped the singer from plotting her next Las Vegas splash.

Gaga’s recent announcement of a March 25 show is unusual, to say the least. Local music fans will be hard-pressed to recall when, or if, another touring act announced a performance so far ahead of time.

Gaga last performed in Las Vegas in December, when she gave back-to-back concerts at the Palms. The 2,600-seat Pearl sold-out for both appearances, but is tiny compared with MGM’s 16,500-seat Grand Garden Arena. Still, tickets for the March concert go on sale May 15, and passes for the summer show are still available.
