Is Beyoncé about to set up shop on the Strip?
Sources tell LoveBScott that Queen Bey plans to return to Las Vegas in 2020 for a new residency.
An official announcement is expected in the first half of the year, but according to the report, the residency will “make Beyoncé the highest-paid entertainer in the city.”
This won’t be Bey’s first Vegas residency. In 2009, she performed a series of shows at Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas and released a live album, I Am… Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas, featuring recordings from the Vegas stint.
Beyoncé won’t be the only megastar on the Strip. Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, and Gwen Stefani all currently have residencies in Vegas.
UPDATE: Beyoncé is not headed to Vegas after all. The singer’s rep has denied that Queen Bey is planning a residency on the Strip for next year.
It’s “absolutely not true,” her rep tells Variety following the rumors that began circulating Saturday.
