Katy Perry announced on Monday the final 10 dates for her “Play” residency at Resorts World Las Vegas. They are October 4, 6, 7, 11, 13, 14, and 31, and November 1, 3, and 4.

“The last 50 shows in Vegas have just flown by!” the 37-year-old superstar stated in a news release. It’s bittersweet to announce the final 10 shows of ‘Play’ ever, but I am so excited to continue bringing this larger-than-life spectacle through my last date on Nov. 4.”

Perry kicked off her residency on Dec. 29, 2021. “Play” featured music from all eras of her career presented with sets and costumes paying homage to her favorite films and TV shows, including Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, and Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.

Tickets for the final dates go on sale Friday, April 14 at 10 a.m. through

Lovers and Friends and Plaintiffs

Concert promoter Live Nation is being sued by three attendees of last year’s “Lovers and Friends” festival who were injured during a stampede. After mistakenly thinking they heard gunfire, thousands of attendees rushed to exit the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. Two of the plaintiffs hail from San Bernardino County, one from Arizona. They seek damages because, their suit claims, the festival had insufficient security and medical personnel. This year’s “Lovers and Friends” is scheduled for May 6, with a lineup including Usher, Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott, 50 Cent, Christina Aguilera, Nelly, and Pitbull. Tickets are sold out.
