Seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner and three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwoodannounces her first-ever residency, REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency, at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas, which will begin 1 December. Underwood joins global music stars Celine Dion, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan as the founding headliners at the Strip’s highly-anticipated new 3,500-room luxury destination opening 24 June, who will also call The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas their performing home. The 5,000-capacity, world-class theatre will open its doors in November 2021 and is exclusively programmed and operated by Concerts West / AEG Presents.
The star-studded performances will begin with Celine Dion’s return to Las Vegas with a brand-new show and a special opening night performance to benefit COVID-19 Relief on Friday, 5 November.

Of her first residency, Underwood says, “Touring is one of my favorite things I get to do as a performer and we’ve all really been missing that. 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 honour 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.”
Underwood also revealed exclusive new artwork and inspiration for REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency. “The show title refers to the fact that this show will reflect the amazing journey I’ve been on for the past 16 years, as well as a glimpse into what lies ahead,”she says.
Additionally, Underwood has arranged for a donation of $1 from each ticket sold for REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency to be contributed to Make-A-Wish Foundation of America (https://wish.org), which grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

On the heels of that success, Carrie released her ninth studio album, My Savior, in March 2021, featuring the beloved gospel hymns she grew up singing in church. My Saviordebuted #1 on the Billboard Country Chart, making it her ninth consecutive release to do so, extending her record as the only artist to accomplish that feat with all nine of her studio album releases from the beginning of her career.
