8 Must-See Las Vegas Residencies for 2019

It’s a banner year for Las Vegas residencies.

Pop phenom and A Star is Born songstress Lady Gaga kicks off her Las Vegas residency next week while iconic singing superstar, Céline Dion, brings her 15-year stay to a close in June. Last week, Britney Spears abruptly postponed her own highly-hyped headline show “Domination” due to her dad’s failing health. It’s still anyone’s guess if we’ll see Britney live in Las Vegas in 2019.

From A-listers to Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, there’s a Sin City show for everyone. Here are 8 of the hottest Las Vegas residencies to hit the Strip in 2019.
