Residencies Coming to Las Vegas This Year

From Frank Sinatra to Celine Dion, Las Vegas has always been THE destination for A-list residency concerts.

While 2020 originally had a stacked lineup of residency shows, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced the majority of performers to cancel or postpone their shows last year. 

However, Vegas is gearing toward a musical comeback with several new and returning residencies starting this summer.  

Here’s a look at some of the residencies scheduled for 2021:

No official concert dates have been given for these artists other than Zedd and Tiësto, but it’s possible that they’ll take a residency gig at the newest-mega resort to join The Strip.
