Reba McEntire, Brooks & Dunn Add More Las Vegas Concert Dates
The show will continue to go on for Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn in Sin City. The singers have added seven shows to their Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas residency at at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
The new concerts are scheduled for Dec. 7, 2015, and May 3, 6, 7, 10, 13 and 14, 2016.
The threesome, who have already played nine sold-out shows in Vegas, say that they don't take the opportunity lightly.
“This is a huge responsibility,” McEntire says of sharing the stage with her longtime friends. “It’s a huge building, lots of seats out there. I think it’s a big load off my mind to have these guys with me, and visa versa.”
The show has reunited Brooks & Dunn for the first time since they split in 2010 to pursue solo careers.
“Honestly, it’s funny. I think one of the real rewards for doing this is, not a day goes by where somebody in a very emotional way says, why don’t y’all get back together?” the men say. “To be able to go, ‘We are, we’re going to be in Las Vegas next summer,’ it’s a relief to have a decent answer. It’s a soft landing and a soft takeoff.”
And chances are good that there might be even more shows in their future -- at least if McEntire has anything to say about it.
“We’re still talking about the following year, but I could call it home for 10 or 15 more years,” she reveals. “There’s not a better place to do our show again.
“This is not our last hurrah,” she adds. “This isn’t going to be us going off into retirement. None of us are even ever thinking about retiring.”
Tickets for the new shows are scheduled to go on sale on Friday (Oct. 16), via the Colosseum's website.
