Singer Lady Gaga performed two shows of her “Born This Way Ball” concert tour at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday and Saturday nights and celebrated with an official after-party at The Act in the Palazzo on Saturday night.
The after-party guest list at Simon Hammerstein’s The Act included Hammerstein, Jude Law, Danny Huston, Jack Huston, Thomas Hayo, Jaz and Ryan Cabrera.
Lady Gaga’s opening act, DJ Lady Starlight, Gaga producer DJ White Shadow, aka Christopher Gomez of Miami, and The Dirty Pearls hosted and performed at the after-party.
While in town, Gaga stopped by Andrea’s in Steve Wynn’s Encore, where the latter was celebrating his birthday, and the two chatted in the lounge.
Check out Andrea Domanick’s review of Friday night’s “wonderful and weird” concert, and thanks to David Becker of WireImage for his photo gallery of the soiree at The Act.

With top accommodations, first-rate entertainment, high-end shopping and a slew of acclaimed chefs, the Palazzo has positioned itself as one of the most luxurious resorts on the Strip.
More than 3,000 all-suite rooms start at 740 square feet and are decorated in a modern, yet classic, Italian style. Each room features a sleeping area, with a king or two queens, and a sunken living room area with floor to ceiling windows.
A cathedral ceiling tops the Palazzo casino, while a second 80-foot dome brings natural light to the property's lobby. The 105,000 square foot casino features more than 2,000 slots and 80 table games but lacks the stale smell of cigarettes, as the property is LEED certified with smoking off limits in most of the Palazzo — including 50 percent of the casino floor.
Dining at the Palazzo is among the best of the Strip, starting with Wolfgang Puck's CUT. Chef Simon To serves up authentic Chinese cuisine at Zine, while Sushisamba combines Brazilian and Peruvian flavors with Japanese techniques. At LAVO, club-goers can dine on Mediterranean dishes before heading upstairs to the bath house-inspired nightclub.
