They’ll join long-time veteran of the Las Vegas residency circuit in Celine Dion, as well as Luke Bryan’s fellow American Idol Judge Katy Perry, at the new Resorts World Casino there. Each artist will have their own respective 6-week run starting in the fall.
Apparently, Carrie is looking forward to changing it up a little:
“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.
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.”
No word on what songs she might be including in her set yet, but I don’t know if anything from her most recent My Savior album will make the cut, as good as it is.
As for the title, that’s just sums up where Carrie’s journey has taken her this far:
“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, on the other hand, is still working on the final plans for his show and won’t start his until February of 2022, saying he wants to keep it fun and high-energy:
“We are looking forward to putting a show together for the fans in Vegas that will be a unique way to see me in concert, something different than coming to a show on the road.
When I saw the renderings and all of the state-of-the-art technology that The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas was offering I just knew this was a place I had to headline.
I am already working on ideas and set lists for these shows and can’t wait to get in front of the fans on this new playground where I can create a fun and super high energy experience.”
The city of Las Vegas has revamped a lot of its downtown area in order to appeal to a younger crowd over the last year or so since COVID started, and this is one of the first new experiences they’re testing out as an experiment to bring people back and boost tourism.
Tickets for all shows go on sale May 24th, a month before the resort actually opens on June 24th.
I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but I think a little mash-up like this could be a great way for Carrie to open her shows there…
