Gwen Stefani Kicks Off Her Las Vegas Residency
On June 27 GRAMMY winner Gwen Stefani kicked off her Just A Girl residency in Las Vegas at Zappos Theatre at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino, the first show of her residency, which will run through March. Reviews are in and Stefani stunned with her energized spontaneity, sparkling visuals and vocals that were clearly delivered live.
Boyfriend Blake Shelton in the audience was a welcome sight but no distraction from the engaged delivery of a cavalcade of Stefani's hits, including No Doubt classics and a cover of Rihanna's "Umbrella." Some costuming glitches were overcome with ad-libs.
Stefani told the audience she could "actually see everybody," interacting with attendees and bringing some of her audience onstage. Shouting out to a lesbian couple wearing hats that read "I'm her Blake" and "I'm her Gwen," she said, "Congratulations, I know it feels good." Then she slid into "Underneath It All," the hit from No Doubt's 2001 Rock Steady album.

It seems only appropriate Stefani would get her own stint in Sin City. At the 44th GRAMMY Awards, Stefani won her first career GRAMMY as a featured artist on Eve's "Let Me Blow Ya Mind." At the 45th GRAMMY Awards, Rock Steady's "Hey Baby" won Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal, followed by a win in the same category for "Underneath It All" the following year.
If you want to catch this GRAMMY winner in action live, tickets are on sale via Stefani's website, including VIP seating.
