Country music icon Dwight Yoakam will make his Encore Theater debut in Las Vegas this December for a six-night residency. An Evening with Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat will take place between Dec. 4-14 at the venue inside the Wynn Las Vegas casino.
For this exclusive residency, Yoakam will treat the audience to a musical exploration and storytelling of the history of sounds emerging from Bakersfield, California, beginning with the Dust Bowl era.
Yoakam will perform a variety of the music that influenced and created the Bakersfield and California country-rock genres of country music, from its early beginnings to its commercial zeniths, in addition to his own original music that was shaped and influenced by this legacy.
This unique showcase will reflect the concepts that created his self-curated SiriusXM channel, Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat.
The Grammy-winning artist will play shows on Dec. 4, 6, 7, 10, 12 and 14. Yoakam will return to the Encore Theater stage in March 2020 for a three-night residency on March 4, 6 and 7. Tickets for the Encore Theater residency go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
