Lady Gaga Performs Surprise 'After Dark' Set In Las Vegas Restaurant
Lady Gaga popped in for some musical fun Sunday night during her Jazz & Piano bandleader Brian Newman’s late-night shows at the Nomad Restaurant at Park MGM in Vegas.
After both artists performed during Gaga’s residency at Park Theater, the superstar checked in at NoMad just before midnight and sang six songs with Newman and his band for an audience of less than 200 people.
Gaga belted out "I Can’t Give You Anything But Love," "Call Me Irresponsible," "Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood," "Orange Colored Sky" "Ev’ry Time Say Goodbye" and "Fly Me to the Moon." On song five, exhausted, Gaga finally asked for a chair to be brought to the tiny stage and when she was done with the impromptu set she told the audience "this is what happens after two and half hours of performing and five glasses of whiskey."
Earlier in the night, Gaga performed her Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano concert at Park MGM’s Park Theatre. She touched on her split from ex-fiancé Christian Carino before diving into a performance of "Someone To Watch Over Me". "So, last time I sang this song, I had a ring on my finger," Gaga told the audience. "So tonight will be different."
Brian Newman After Dark debuted May 30th and runs Thursday to Sunday until June 15th. It is meant to reimagine the classic Las Vegas lounge show. Newman recently released his debut album, Showboat, mixing the jazz influences of Miles Davis and Chet Baker with rock such as Nirvana and Beck.
Newman has worked with Gaga in the past, co-producing her rendition of "La Vie En Rose" from the A Star Is Born soundtrack, and leading the band on her Cheek to Cheek album with Tony Bennett.
