Carrie Underwood Delivers in First Las Vegas Residency
Carrie Underwood wows fans in her first Las Vegas Residency show, and Country Swag was there to witness it. Check out our recap below.
From an Oklahoma farm, to the American Idol stage, and now, the bright lights of Vegas, Carrie Underwood is proving the impossible: that she can continue to raise the bar almost two decades into a phenomenal career.
Underwood closed the first leg of the REFLECTION residency earlier this month; not just her first stint in Sin City but also the first ever at the new Resorts World Theater in Las Vegas, after Celine Dion delayed her own performance dates due to health complications earlier this year. Underwood also paves the way for other country superstars to be in residence at the brand new venue; Luke Bryan moves into the 5,000 seat theater early next year.
Fans who have seen Underwood in concert or on tour have never seen her like this. REFLECTION is a spectacle from start to finish with all the bells and whistles you would expect from a Vegas show. But even the dazzling set, stunning visual effects, show-stopping costumes, and exceptional dancers and aerialists pale in comparison to the impeccable vocals Underwood delivers for 90 minutes straight.
Performing hit after hit from her impressive discography, Underwood appears to be having the time of her life as she struts the stage; setting fire to a truck during the iconic final chorus of her 2005 smash, “Before He Cheats”, playing off the energy of the dancers, band, and crowd, and pausing to soak in the audience’s adoration after a gospel mashup of “Jesus Take the Wheel” and “How Great Thou Art”. The show ends with a drenched Underwood belting the finale, “Something in the Water” from beneath an active waterfall built into the two-story stage.
Originally announced as a two-week Las Vegas residency, additional shows have now been added in March, April and May 2022 due to popular demand. Get your tickets today at axs.com/carrieinvegas.
