Paula Abdul will headline her new Las Vegas residency Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl at Flamingo Las Vegas beginning August 13th. The remarkable multimedia experience will highlight Abdul’s incomparable career through song, dance and stories of her three-decade career ride atop the charts and entertaining millions of fans worldwide. She will sing and dance her way through her biggest hits and even reveal some behind the scenes fun during American Idol. Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, May 4th at 10 am with a pre-sale for Caesars Rewards members, Caesars Entertainment’s loyalty program and Ticketmaster customers on Friday, May 3rd from 10 am until 10 pm.

“It’s a real thrill to have the iconic Flamingo Las Vegas welcome me to their stage,” states Abdul. “After 30 years as an entertainer, I can’t think of any better place to showcase my love for performing than Las Vegas.”

“Paula Abdul is a phenomenal talent with a celebrated history of record-breaking hit songs, and she has garnered a long list of extraordinary accomplishments since hitting the world’s stage,” states Eileen Moore, president of Flamingo Las Vegas. “We are extremely excited to welcome Paula to our family of superstar entertainers, and we are certain “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl” will have guests on their feet and dancing in the aisles.”

Having been a force in the music industry since her debut album Forever Your Girl hit the charts in 1988, Abdul is the first female to ever receive four No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles off a debut album. One of those singles, and arguably Abdul’s most recognized hit, “Straight Up,” is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. After first making her mark as a Los Angeles Lakers cheerleader and choreographer, Abdul focused her talents on music. Her debut album hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 1989, completing a record 64-week climb to the top spot. Her 1991 LP, Spellbound, also topped the Billboard 200 and spun off two more Hot 100 No. 1’s. As she gained a new generation of fans as a judge on American Idol, she added a No. 2 hit, “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow,” on the Dance Club Songs chart in 2008 with then-fellow judge Randy Jackson. The singer/dancer has earned six No. 1 songs, eight Top 10 and 15 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2018, Abdul traveled the U.S. for the sold-out Straight Up PAULA! Tour, her first solo headlining tour in over 25 years. To date, Abdul ranks No. 10 on Billboard’s All Time Top 200 Albums by Women.
