Lady Gaga books jazz concert in Las Vegas

The singer won a Grammy for her jazz duets album with Tony Bennett.

Lady Gaga is heading to Las Vegas to perform a one-off jazz concert later this month (Dec16).

The Born This Way singer will hit the stage at the Wynn Encore Theater at the Wynn Hotel & Casino on 30 December (16) to perform classic jazz songs and reworked versions of her singles.

She will be joined by her musician pal Brian Newman, who worked on Cheek to Cheek, her Grammy-winning jazz standards album with crooner Tony Bennett.

Tickets for the black tie event, titled An Intimate Evening with Lady Gaga, won't be cheap - entrance will cost fans between $1,000 (£800) and $1,500 (£1,200) each.

"Celebrated for infectious dance tracks and powerful ballads, six-time Grammy Award winner Lady Gaga is set to showcase her love of jazz in an intimate, one-night-only concert in the Encore Theater on Friday, December 30," reads a description of the show. "Performing with New York City jazzman, Brian Newman, and his quintet, Gaga will glide through an evening of jazz standards and classics, including renditions of some of the songs that have made her one of the best-selling musicians of all time. Begin your New Year's weekend on a soulful musical journey expertly guided by the Lady herself."

Newman is no stranger to Gaga's fans - the pop superstar is known for staging impromptu performances with the jazz musician at the Gramercy Park Hotel's Rose Bar in New York City, where he and his band have a residency.

She last dropped by the venue in July (16), when they teamed up with fellow artist Tommy London, frontman of The Dirty Pearls, and belted out six songs together during her 30-minute set, which included renditions of jazz standards I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Bang Bang, and Edith Piaf's signature song, La Vie en rose.
