Lady Antebellum Plan Our Kind of Vegas Residency for 2019
Lady Antebellum are heading to Las Vegas, Nev., in 2019. The country trio will launch a residency, dubbed Our Kind of Vegas, in February.
Announced on Wednesday (Oct. 24), Lady Antebellum's Our Kind of Vegas residency will take place at the Palms Casino Resort's Pearl Concert Theater; they will be the first country act to headline at the venue. The first show is scheduled for Feb. 8, with four additional shows set for Feb. 9, 13, 15 and 16. Ten additional shows will take place in May and August, five in each month.
A full list of Our Kind of Vegas show dates is below; tickets for the shows will go on sale on Nov. 2 at 10AM PT. During a press conference celebrating the announcement of the residency, the trio explained that they're excited to perform in a more intimate setting than the arenas and amphitheaters they have been playing in recent years, including during their most recent Summer Plays On Tour with co-headliner Darius Rucker.
"We still wanna make it big, and have a big old Vegas explosion of a show, but then also really try to have extended stripped-down moments," band member Charles Kelly explains. "Almost like a Bluebird [Cafe] moment, where we can really talk about how we wrote these songs and have that connection with the audience."
To further that behind-the-scenes feel, Hillary Scott adds, they may even ask some of the people who helped create their songs to join them onstage during the shows. "Every night will be different and spontaneous," she says. "I think we might even bring some of our songwriter friends out to perform with us."
Of course, it wouldn't be a Vegas show without a bit of glamour and sparkle, and the trio say there'll be plenty of that, too. "Coming out of the gates, you need to be flashy, because, hey, you're in Vegas," Kelly continues, "But when I go to a show, I don't stand up the whole time. I wanna rock, then let my feet take a rest. [I want the show to] take me on a bit of a journey, and then rock out again."
Adds Dave Haywood, "It provides a whole new way for us to approach a show, you know? I think people are going to leave with a new experience as well."
Lady Antebellum released their newest album, Heart Break, in 2017, following a hiatus in 2016, during which all three members pursued solo projects. Haywood, Kelly and Scott announced in September that they were leaving their longtime label, Capitol Nashville, to sign with Big Machine Label Group. New music is in the works.
