Katy Perry might be Las Vegas’ next big resident performer.
It was once assumed artists go to Vegas to lay their careers to rest, but those days are long gone. Celine Dion, Elton John, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears paved the way for fellow A-list artists to make Sin City their second home. Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Ricky Martin, Cher, Bruno Mars, Drake, Cardi B, Marshmello, Xtina, The Backstreet Boys, and many more are the latest to light up the Vegas strip, and if the reports are true… next is Katy Perry.
The Las Vegas Review Journal claims Katy “informally” appeared at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace over the weekend and toured the venue for around an hour. Caesars Entertainment officials reportedly joined Katy on the walk-through to discuss a possible residency at The Colosseum.
Celine Dion’s 16-year run at The Colosseum ends this June, so it’s important Caesars eyes some new big names.
The prospect of Katy at The Colosseum is pretty interesting. That venue typically sees an older audience, so perhaps they’re aiming to bring younger people to Caesars and re-brand their live entertainment. Katy will do quite well in the desert.
