Luke Bryan Reveals If He’ll Tour In 2024 After Wrapping Record-Breaking Las Vegas Residency
Bryan’s two-year headlining run in Las Vegas has concluded.
Luke Bryan performs the Medley “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” “One Margarita,” “That’s My Kind of Night,” “Play It Again,” and “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” at “The 57th Annual CMA Awards,” live from Bridgestone Arena Wednesday, November 8, 2023 on ABC.
Luke Bryan wrapped up his 48-show Las Vegas Residency on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2024, and is now finalizing what the rest of his year will look like.
For the last night of his record-breaking, two-year headlining run, Bryan performed to a sold-out crowd at Resorts World Theatre. He first opened the residency on Feb. 11, 2022 and continued to captivate nearly 200,000 fans with his chart-topping hits and pyrotechnic-infused production.
Superstar Bids Farewell To Las Vegas
“It is unbelievable that we’ve reached the end of our two-year run at Resorts World Theatre,” Bryan said in a recent statement. “Las Vegas has been a home away from home the last two years, and I am grateful to all the fans who have joined us night after night to experience this production. This has truly been an experience I’ll never forget.”
Now that Luke Bryan VEGAS is off his plate for the time being, the country music superstar is gearing up to reclaim his role as a judge on American Idol alongside Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. The trio’s seventh season on the singing competition show will air on ABC on Sunday, February 18, and will also be available for streaming via Hulu.
Will Luke Bryan Tour In 2024?
On top of that, Bryan told Audacy’s Rob + Holly that his next headline tour is “definitely” in the works.
“I’m definitely going to be out on tour. We haven’t announced all of that stuff yet, but it’s comin’ down the pipeline,” he teased.
The “Country On” singer went on to say that while the process of getting back out on the road is already underway, he’s also making an effort to prioritize writing new songs and spending time with his family.
“My main thing is always trying to focus on writing songs — carving out enough time to write songs — and then making some albums and then having a nice balance,” he said while reflecting on his busy schedule. “The past couple years of my life with ‘American Idol,’ Vegas [residency], my tour dates and stuff put a lot on my plate, and I’ve learned that I can survive it. It’s been like two years of Navy Seal training for me — but the main thing is a nice balance.”
Having that downtime is just as important for Bryan, who says that when he’s home, he fully allows himself that time to recuperate around his loved ones.
“When I’m home, I love being home. I love being with my family almost too much. I try to plan too many things and sometimes it backfires, but when I’m out on the road touring, I love that.”
What Bucket List Items Will Luke Bryan Check Off Next?
The CMA Awards co-host also has plenty of “bucket list” goals he hopes to cross off in between everything he’s got going on, from a New Zealand Brown Trout fishing trip to riding a horse into the Arctic Circle and going “rugged” for two weeks.
“The thing is, that’s stuff you gotta do, you can’t be 75 and do all that stuff,” the Georgia native told the outlet. “It’s all about including the family on these things too. I’ve got a lot of crazy little things that we’ll try to check off the list as a family. I’ve done a really good job at brainwashing my children into doing exactly what I like to do,” he joked.
Luke Bryan already has several festival appearances scheduled throughout 2024, including his own Crash My Playa. From January 17 to January 20, this annual festival will return to Riviera Cancun, MX with performances from Bryan himself, along with several other major country acts like Dierks Bentley, Jelly Roll, Jon Pardi, Bailey Zimmerman, and more.
