Gwen Stefani Headed to Las Vegas for Residency Show at Planet Hollywood

The 'Used to Love You' singer will be kicking off her residency on June 27.

Gwen Stefani is bringing her bestselling pop vocals and show-stopping stage presence to the Las Vegas Strip with her first ever residency show, Gwen Stefani: Just a Girl.

The "Make Me Like You" singer will be headlining an exclusive residency in Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and Stefani says she's honored by the opportunity and is looking forward to bringing her fans something special.

"To be able to do a show in Vegas is such an incredible honor," Stefani said in a statement released by Planet Hollywood on Tuesday. "Growing up in Anaheim, California, I could never have imagined one day having my own Vegas residency."

"I have been so fortunate to tour throughout my career, but to create a show for Vegas is something I’ve never experienced and I can’t wait," she added.

A source tells ET that Stefani had considered taking the Las Vegas gig for a while. “She and Blake had talked a lot about her taking it,” says the source, adding that she wanted to make sure her boyfriend, Blake Shelton, and her three sons were on board with the career move.

"Blake felt she should take it. He wants her to express herself through music and grow as an artist. He thinks it's a great career move," the source continues. “This is a great opportunity and her fans will love that!”

As for how they plan on making their relationship work while she's in Vegas, the source notes, "Blake has assured Gwen that he would always visit her when she performs, which is comforting."

Per usual, Stefani's main focus is Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 4. "Gwen is very close to her boys and while she wants to focus on her music she still wants to make them her top priority," the source says. "She wants to make sure their lives are as normal as possible."

Stefani is set for 25 live shows between June 2018 and March 2019, with three engagements in June, nine in July, four in December, one in February and the final eight in March.

The 48-year-old singer, along with residency promoter Live Nation Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment, will also be using the exciting show to do some good. They've teamed up in partnership with Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, meaning $1 of every ticket sold will be donated to the Las Vegas-based non-profit charity.

Gwen Stefani: Just a Girl kicks off June 27, and tickets go on sale April 13 at 10 a.m. P.T. through ticket master or the Planet Hollywood box office.  Check here for more ticket purchasing info.
