It’s official – after much speculation, it’s been confirmed that country superstars Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan are heading to Las Vegas for their first-ever residencies at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas.
Underwood’s residency, dubbed, REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency, will begin in December 2021 with six shows scheduled for December 1, 3, 4, 8, 10 and 11.
“Touring is one of my favorite things I get to do as a performer and we’ve all really been missing that. I love being on the road and coming to the fans where they live but it will also be fun to get to do multiple shows in one place where people will be able to come to get that concert experience and have some fun in Las Vegas at the same time,” Underwood shared in a statement. “It’s such a special honor to be one of the first artists to get to perform in a brand new, beautiful, state-of-the-art theatre at such an exciting new destination as Resorts World Las Vegas.”
Underwood also offered insight into the name of her residency, saying, “The show title refers to the fact that this show will reflect the amazing journey I’ve been on for the past 16 years, as well as a glimpse into what lies ahead.”
Luke Bryan: Vegas will take place in February 2022 with six shows on the following dates: Feb. 11-12, 16, 18, 19 and 20.
“I’m already working on ideas and can’t wait to play for you on this new playground where I can create a fun and high energy experience,” the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year wrote on social media.
The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas will seat 5,000 fans and is described as a “world-class theatre.”
The country stars will be joined by Celine Dion, Katy Perry, Zedd and Tiësto, who will also headline residencies at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas.
Tickets, plus VIP and premium ticket packages, for all shows will go on sale to the public starting Monday, May 24 at 10 a.m. PST at AXS.com.
