The newly opened 5,000-capacity theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas, exclusively programmed and operated by Concerts West / AEG Presents, is a state-of-the-art, multi-level venue designed by the award-winning international design firm, Scéno Plus. The intimate venue, with the furthest seat only 150 feet from the stage, features unparalleled comfort, unobstructed sightlines and an unmatched spatial audio experience through more than 200 L-Acoustics speakers powered by L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology.
The opening night of “Katy Perry: PLAY” featured her first live performance of “When I’m Gone” (10:22PM/Astralwerks/Capitol Records), Katy’s collaboration with GRAMMY®-nominated producer/dance artist Alesso. Praised as “a spacey electro-pop dance track” by Rolling Stone, the track went straight to No. 1 on the U.S. Dance Shazam chart. It’s entered the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and the top five on iTunes in the U.S.
The official video for “When I’m Gone” premiered during halftime of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship, marking the only time that ESPN has ever dropped a global music video within a live broadcast across its networks. People said, “Katy Perry is delivering everything her fans have been asking for in her latest music video.” Paper Magazine praised the ”over-the-top, kitschy visuals” while Popsugar observed, “Katy Perry's new musical era is here!”
Katy will return to “American Idol” for her fifth season, hosting with her co-judges. The February 27 season premiere kicks off the show’s 20th year.
