Tim McGraw, Faith Hill are Vegas-bound

Country couple announce Venetian residency

In 1995, Faith Hill had a top 5 hit called “Let’s Go To Vegas.” Nearly 20 years later, she and husband Tim McGraw are taking the song’s title literally.

Following Garth Brooks and Shania Twain, McGraw and Hill are the latest country superstars to join the cavalcade of artists setting up residencies in Las Vegas. The married couple, who made the announcement here Tuesday morning, will start a 10-weekend limited engagement Dec. 7 at the Venetian that will run through April 2013. They will appear in the 1,815-seat Venetian Theater for a total of 40 shows.

The artists, who have eight Grammys between them and have sold a combined 70 million albums, will bring the latest iteration of their popular Soul2Soul tour to the Strip. Their last Soul2Soul outing in 2006 was the fifth highest grossing tour of that year, raking in close to $89 million.

“We’re putting together a show that will basically be completely different from how we’ve approached it in the past,” Hill said, noting that the Venetian run allows the couple to work around their three daughters’ school schedules.

McGraw, who is out on a stadium tour with Kenny Chesney this summer, noted that unlike Soul2Soul tours of the past during which each artist performed primarily separately while playing some songs together, “this show is all about us…We’ll do a few of the songs that we have individually, but they’ll be integrated with what we do together.”

The announcement comes as both artists are in transition. McGraw is recording his first album for Big Machine Records after spending his whole career on Curb Records. Hill’s last non-Christmas studio album was 2005’s “Fireflies.” She has been recording a new album for Warner Bros. for the last few years, though a release date has yet to be announced. A new single, “Come Home,” was released last November and reached No. 26 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart.

As far as extending the inaugural limited run, Venetian president-COO John Caparella said, “the opportunity to go beyond the initial 10 weekends is something we’ll look at, but (fans) should buy their tickets for these weekends.”
