Carrie Underwood Announces Las Vegas Residency, Reveals Dates

by Madison Miller

Country music superstar Carrie Underwood has made a major announcement to her fans today. For those eager to see their favorite artists live again, Underwood is making dreams come true.

Underwood will have her very first Las Vegas residency at Resorts World. She will perform at the Theatre starting on December 1. The name of her residency series is “Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency.” Fans will sit in a 5,000-seat theater where the absolute farthest they will be is 150 feet away. It’s an amazing opportunity for a more up-close-and-personal concert experience.

Fans can start purchasing tickets on May 24. However, Fan Club members can take part in pre-sale opportunities starting this upcoming Monday. Underwood will be performing for six days in Vegas. The dates are Dec. 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, and 11.

Underwood isn’t alone in her Las Vegas residency announcement. Luke Bryan, Céline Dion, and Katy Perry are all booked for residencies in the near future.

According to The Boot, Carrie Underwood is going to donate $1 for every ticket sold to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

It isn’t the only thing on the country star’s agenda, either. She has already announced six different festival dates for 2021. The news of the Las Vegas residency was left off her official tour calendar until now. “Reflection” will wrap up Underwood’s 2021. In fact, the name for the show is meant to reflect on time itself. Underwood shared that the show will reflect on the 16-year ongoing journey she has had since winning “American Idol” back in 2005.

What to Expect in Las Vegas

Underwood will be dusting off some of her older hits for her upcoming residency. She told People that she’s looking forward to “all of the party people coming to Vegas to have a good time.” She said she’s already envisioning playing some of her most popular sassy, fierce anthems like “Before He Cheats,” “Good Girl,” and “Last Name.” Her residency will be a collection of Underwood’s best and most lively tracks.

It’s also an opportunity for her to be able to perform in front of people again, which is something she’s been longing for over the past year. She wants Las Vegas to be all “high energy” and all-around extravagance.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m so looking forward to getting back to normal and singing on a stage in front of people, but it was a kind of a forced slow down … I guess absence also makes the heart grow fonder. As far as the business and being slower and not being able to do all the things we normally do, I feel like everybody’s just itching to get back at it. And I certainly gained an appreciation, a new appreciation for what this life is and wanting to get back in front of people on stage,” Carrie Underwood told People.

Over the past year, Underwood has also released her first gospel album, a longtime goal, called “My Savior.” Then her accompanying Christmas album, “My Gift,” was also released. She was recognized as the entertainer of the year for the third time at the ACM Awards.

Las Vegas will give her a pretty epic opportunity to showcase what makes her the entertainer of the year.
