Carrie Underwood Doubles Las Vegas Residency Dates
Carrie Underwood is coming soon to Las Vegas, Nev., and due to demand, she's already doubled the number of shows she'll be performing. The singer and multi-time Female Vocalist of the Year is now planning a 12-date residency at the Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas.
Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency will follow a venue-opening residency from Celine Dion. Underwood's shows were originally scheduled for Dec. 1, 3, 4, 8, 10 and 11, 2021, but on Thursday (May 20), she added shows on March 23, 25, 26 and 30, and on April 1 and 2. The wording of the initial press release left open the possibility for more dates to be announced, too.
Tickets for Underwood's Las Vegas residency will go on sale to the general public on Monday (May 24) at 10AM PT, through AXS.com. Underwood plans to donate $1 from every ticket sold to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Reflection will be the 38-year-old's first Las Vegas residency, and aside from six festival dates in 2021, there was nothing on her official tour calendar prior to its announcement. The residency's name, she says, comes from how the show will reflect her 16-year journey since winning American Idol in 2005.
However, the news is not a total surprise: In April, Underwood and the other three artists slated for new residencies starred in a commercial for Resorts World Las Vegas. The Stay Fabulous campaign debuted during the 2021 Academy Awards.
The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas is a 5,000-seat theater, scheduled to open in November. The venue promises clear sight lines -- the furthest seat from the stage will be only 150 feet away, about the length of half a football field -- and the multi-level venue will also feature a state-of-the-art sound system.
Katy Perry and Luke Bryan are also planning residencies at the new venue for early 2022. Bryan's residency begins on Feb. 11.
