Why Drake's New Vegas Residency Isn’t Being Called a Residency

Drake is the latest superstar to ink a deal for multiple shows in Vegas at the fairly intimate XS Nightclub at Wynn Casino, but don’t call it a residency.

According to the spokesperson for the venue itself, who tells Rolling Stone:

"We pursued a relationship with Drake and his management team to do something different in Las Vegas, not the traditional residency. A partnership will be the right word because this isn’t just about performing at the venue. This is more about how we bring Drake into the concept of Wynn Las Vegas. We’re looking at all possible environments within the hotel and working with Drake and Drake’s team to see exactly how he can lend assistance in curating these experiences."

That said, Drake is definitely performing multiple times at XS and his first two shows that have been announced are going down May 4th and 18th.
