by Samantha Whidden

On Monday (August 2nd), country legend Reba McEntire announced the final dates for her performances with Brooks & Dunn in Las Vegas. 

“I can’t wait to be back in Vegas with my buddies @Brooksand Dunn for our final shows at the @CollesseumatCP,” Reba McEntire states in her Twitter post. 

Reba McEntire also shares that the shows will go on from December 1st until December 15th with tickets going on sale this upcoming Friday (August 6th) at 10 AM PT. 

Reba McEntire re-launched her Las Vegas Residency in June 2015. This time, she teamed up with Brooks & Dunn. “I won’t be as nervous as I will be so anxious to get out there and performed,” Reba reveals to Billboard in 2015.  At the time, Reba McEntire described the Las Vegas show as a collaborative affair, noting, “We’re coming out together and ending together, and just floating in and out in between.”

Reba McEntire and the Brooks & Dunn crew put their bands together and they had 10 musicians and crew. 

Reba Talks Las Vegas Residency With Brooks & Dunn

In a November 2016 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Reba chats about working with Brooks & Dunn’s Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks. “I love going to Vegas and hanging out with Ronnie and Kix. Who wouldn’t? They’re so much fun,” Reba proclaims. 

The guys also spoke to the media outlet in June 2015 teaming up with Reba McEntire. “We’re singing on her songs, she’s singing on ours. Creatively, it’s not what we did those years [before]. It’s a new fun thing to do,” Brooks shares. Reba chimes in, “I’m givin’ them what they came for. The hits [that the fans] made No. 1s.”

Dunn also says that the Vegas Residency is not as hard on him as going on tour. “The last time we toured, we had 21 trucks and 19 tour busses,” Brooks explains. Reba McEntire further shares that she and Brooks take advantage of the quiet Vegas mornings by getting up early and going for walks. 

In regards to meeting some of her own impersonators, Reba McEntire adds, “There’s so many impersonators in town that people will see me and go, ‘Oh yeah right.’ And I just keep on walkin’!”

The trio previously canceled dates through 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. Reba McEntire also postponed her 2021 arena tour in spring 2021.

Reba McEntire shared on Instagram the bad news “We’ve waited as long as we possibly could to make a decision, but unfortunately we’re not going to be able to play our 2021 Reba: Live in Concert date. As much as I wish we could get back out on the road, it’s just not possible,” she explained. But the country songstress did state that she is rescheduling the dates for 2022. Her tour is currently scheduled to kick off in January 2022.
