Lady GaGa announces two-year residency in Las Vegas

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Can't get enough of Lady GaGa? Starting in about a year from now, you could see her as many times as you'd like in Las Vegas. Mama Monster will begin a two-year special engagement at The Park Theater in Sin City, a new 5,300-seat venue across the street from the relatively new T-Mobile Arena. 'It has been a life-long dream of mine to play Las Vegas,' said Lady GaGa in a press release. '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.' Performances aren't expected to begin until December 2018, but preparations are underway with ticket sales coming very soon. The Park Theater is under management of the very LGBT-friendly MGM Resorts International brand of hotels and entertainment facilities.

Upcoming new Seattle shows to announce this week include Gogol Bordello on February 20 at The Neptune, Brett Dennen on March 20 at The Neptune, Herb Alpert with Lani Hall on March 28-31 at The Triple Door, Beth Ditto on March 29 at The Showbox Market and Natalia Lafourcade on June 2 at The Neptune.



Although there are only two music categories presented at the Academy Awards, both have become extremely competitive in recent years with marquee name artists and top international composers hoping to win either. For the 2018 Oscars, a whopping 141 musical scores are eligible and 70 entries have been narrowed down from a longer list to compete for Best Original Song.

For Best Original Score, the frontrunners are Hans Zimmer for Dunkirk, Alexandre Desplat for The Shape of Water, Dario Marianelli for Darkest Hour, Michael Giacchino for either Coco or War for the Planet of the Apes and John Williams for either Star Wars: The Last Jedi or The Post. But clipping at their heels are Carter Burwell for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch for Bladerunner 2049, Phillip Glass for Jane and Radiohead band member Jonny Greenwood for his seventh film project, composing the music for the period piece Phantom Thread; it would be his first nomination. The scores for Call Me By Your Name and I, Tonya were ruled ineligible by AMPAS (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) because each lacked the required amount of original music on the album.

For Best Original Song, the only sure bet for a nomination is 'This Is Me,' the soaring and inspirational hit from The Greatest Showman. Indie singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens has two shots at making the final cut with double entries from Call Me By Your Name, 'Mystery Of Love' and 'Visions Of Gideon.' Sia, who should've landed a nod last year for penning 'Never Give Up' for the movie Lion, will appear on the ballot again with 'To Be Human' from the action flick Wonder Woman. Mariah Carey is in the running for one of the five spots with the track 'The Star' from the animated film by the same title. Taylor Swift, no stranger to writing music for films - her credits include songs for Valentine's Day and The Hunger Games - is a contender with 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' from Fifty Shades Darker, while Nick Jonas is looking for a first time nomination with 'Home' from the animated motion picture Ferdinand. Mary J. Blige, a shoo-in for a Best Supporting Actress nod, could also net a song nomination for the title theme of her movie Mudbound, while the late Chris Cornell is in the mix as well with 'The Promise' from the film of the same name and Sara Bareilles is a hopeful with 'If I Dare' from Battle of the Sexes. Nominations for the Academy Awards are set for a January 23 announcement.



Congratulations to the 2018 class of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, announced after two rounds of voting. Bon Jovi, The Cars, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues and Nina Simone have been selected for induction into the elite music club next year, joining a list of all-time greats from The Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder to Elton John and Nirvana. The 33rd Annual Induction ceremony is scheduled to take place on April 14 at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame foundation and museum. The event will once again be televised on HBO.

Speaking of HBO, the cable channel will premiere a new documentary on David Bowie next month. David Bowie: The Last Five Years examines the rock icon's late-career accomplishments prior to his death in early 2016, which includes two groundbreaking albums - 2013's The Next Day and the Grammy-winning Blackstar from a year ago - and his musical Lazarus, inspired by his role in the 1976 cult classic The Man Who Fell to Earth. David Bowie: The Last Five Years, a follow-up to the 2013 documentary David Bowie: Five Years directed by Francis Whately, who also helmed the new film, includes interviews with Bowie's closest creative collaborators, such as Bowie's longtime producer Tony Visconti, graphic designer Jonathan Barnbrook, Lazarus producer Robert Fox and Johan Renck, who directed Bowie's final music video for the single 'Lazarus,' widely discussed as foreshadowing the legendary performer's death. The documentary will premiere January 8 on HBO.

Finally, Kendrick Lamar has been chosen to perform during the halftime show of the College Football Playoffs Championship on January 8, in Atlanta. This is the inaugural year of a halftime concert for this event, which pits the top two college football teams in the country, who will meet for the decisive game after beating two other teams in the national semi-finals.
