Three new dates have been added to her long-awaited residency at The Venetian: May 20, May 21, and May 25. Tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster this Friday (March 18) at 10 a.m. PT. There’s no word if more dates will be added, but the 64-year-old did tease in a message last month that her residency was extended to 10 dates.
Upon selling out the first batch of tickets, Baker shared a gif of herself captioned, “really. Really? REALLYYY?!?… Trying to Find the Words (i need a Min) [prayer hands emoji].”
