Carrie Underwood announced her “Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency” at the Theatre at New Resorts World Las Vegas on Tuesday (May 12). The country star’s first-ever residency is slated to kick off on Dec. 1 in the new 5,000-capacity room that is slated to open on June 24, and also host residencies by Celine Dion, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.
“Touring is one of my favorite things I get to do as a performer and we’ve all really been missing that,” said Underwood in a statement announcing the run at the new 3,500-room resort. “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.”
The room — booked exclusively by Concerts West/AEG Presents — will open in November with a new show from Dion, with Underwood slated to begin her residency with a six-gig run on Dec. 1, 3, 4, 8, 10 and 11. Underwood said the show’s title is a reference to “the amazing journey I’ve been on for the past 16 years, as well as a glimpse into what lies ahead.”
Underwood has earmarked a $1 donation from each ticket sold to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, which she has been involved with for more than 15 years. Tickets will go on sale to the public on May 24 at 10 a.m. PT. at AXS.com; official fan club members will get first access to tickets beginning on Monday (May 17).
