The singer performed at the MGM Park Theater, kicking off her two-year stay and introducing fans to her new pop odyssey show, Enigma.

Gaga sang the cover from within a round keyboard console while wearing a glowing cyberpunk outfit. The song came shortly after her performance of “Government Hooker,” tying together the political connotations.
The epic 20-song setlist included the cover towards the back end, before ending with Gaga’s first public performance of A Star is Born‘s “Shallow.” The stripped down execution was similar to that of the film, performed in casual attire at the piano.
“For a really long time, I felt so misunderstood — [critics] thought the way I dress, the way I talk, my attire, was shallow,” she said. “But this shit is deep as fuck.”
