Lady Gaga kicked off the first ‘Enigma’ show of her Las Vegas residency last night, and we were there to experience it!
She started the show flying in from above the crowd, proving that this is no ordinary residency show within mere seconds, much like her Super Bowl performance, with her debut single, “Just Dance”. She finally lands on the stage, an other-worldly, distant planet looking spectacle designed by Eli Russell Linnetz (who also designed the merch). She then got straight into other hits from her debut album, including “Poker Face” and “Love Game”.
This show was full of outfit changes, props, and most importantly, energy. Many songs that she had only performed as ballads returned in full studio form, including “The Edge Of Glory” and “Yoü And I”.
The setlist [full below] has already proven to be one of her best, containing several of her global hits, as well as deep album cuts that haven’t been performed for many years. She didn’t shy away from any of her studio albums, performing tracks from every one of them, including her most recent Soundtrack for “A Star Is Born”. Many fan favourites were revived for the residency, including “The Fame”, “Government Hooker”, “Dance In The Dark” and Beautiful, Dirty, Rich”.
Petga, from the de-commissioned ARTPOP app, also makes an appearance. With a fresh look, and a new name, Enigma, she is a key part of the show’s storyline, guiding Gaga throughout the way. She is seen in several interludes which also feature new music by producer Boys Noize, who has been working on Lady Gaga’s upcoming sixth album expected to drop in 2019.
Many other celebrities attended the show to support Gaga, including Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, James Charles, Regina King and Adam Lambert. Katy was seen multiple times throughout the night singing and dancing along to the performances.
Gaga also hinted during the show that her residency may be extended, saying “I’ll be here for two whole years, three if I’m lucky.” As of now, her Enigma and Jazz & Piano Las Vegas residency continues through til November 9, 2019.
