Some people have a hard time confirming what they're doing this coming weekend, but pop stars often look far into the future and have plans months or even years in advance. Lady Gaga is clearly one such star, and she already knows when and where she’ll be playing years from now.

The powerful pop singer has announced that she is heading to Las Vegas for her own musical residency, though she’s not set to kick it off until next December. That’s right, December 2018 will see Mother Monster begin her two-year residency, so she’s already signed up for shows that will stretch into 2020, or perhaps even 2021.

The “Million Reasons” singer is slated to take over the Park Theater at the Park MGM in Las Vegas for her still-unnamed residency, where she’ll surely play her many hit singles, as well as some new songs that probably haven’t even been written yet.

The chanteuse herself revealed the good news on Twitter and stated that the show will be a brand new one, created specifically for Vegas, and that surely has Gaga fans already looking for unavailable tickets years in advance.

Gaga is now the latest active pop star to make Vegas her home, if only for a short time. Fellow chart-toppers like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez have also headlined residencies in Sin City recently, and both have been wildly successful. It was only a matter of time before another major figure set up shop in Vegas, and Gaga probably won’t be the last.

While no dates have been revealed just yet, one report claims that the GRAMMY winner and Academy Award nominee will play at least 36 shows, though if things go well, she could easily up that count, which Britney was more than happy to do with her Piece of Me residency.

Before you watch her perform in Las Vegas, watch Gaga talk about her grandest album yet, Born This Way.
