    7 Artists Who Should Get Their Own Las Vegas Residencies

    https://soundigest.com/2019/02/08/7-...s-residencies/

    Las Vegas concert residencies have a rich history dating back to the glorified golden days of artists like Liberace, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Everyone is familiar with the residency heavy-hitters (Elton John, Celine Dion, Cher, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, etc.) These shows are as much of a Las Vegas staple as gambling. As entertaining as they are, residencies on the Strip were once notoriously viewed as a last resort for performers when their careers were headed downhill.
    In a fascinating twist of fate, a newer generation of A-list pop stars have decided to dismantle that stereotype and completely redefine the Las Vegas residency. It’s easily the most intriguing topic in the live music industry as of right now; articles and think pieces are being posted weekly all across the board. It’s safe to say that the era of ambitious chart-topping “newbies” kicked off with Lady Gaga’s unexpected announcement in December 2017. The “Million Reasons” singer plays a balancing act with two completely different shows: an extravagant Jazz and Piano Engagement and her tongue-in-cheek pop spectacle Enigma. Since then, current hit makers Cardi B, Drake and Bruno Mars have all hopped on board for upcoming residencies.
    Since Nevada is slowly becoming the newfound focal point for our faves, here’s a list of seven top-tier musicians and bands that would most certainly hold their own on the Strip, listed in alphabetical order.

    1) Adele
    2)

    Carrie Underwood

    As diverse as the Vegas Strip has become, a long-term gig by country music darling Carrie Underwood would still be considered an anomaly since her genre is understated in Sin City. The American Idol alum boasts an impressive discography and a devoted fan base, but let’s stop beating around the bush… we would all fly to Vegas and pay full admission just to belt “Before He Cheats” in a venue with thousands of other people.

    I hope she doesn't anytime soon.I want her to keep touring and coming near me instead of having to take a trip to Vegas. #Imselfish

    Carrie performing in Vegas is about the only thing that would persuade me to go there. Especially since I won't fly and would have to drive, lol. Maybe she can do that when she and I are both "retired" and I have time to drive out west!

    I could see her doing one in like 10 or 12 years, but definitely not now.

    No thank you. Every has been is performing in Vegas it seems nowdays. It had more meaning back when it was just a handful of stars. Besides she is still top of her game.

    VERY UNLIKELY!!! Carrie and Mike are DEVOTED Christians - a classic example of "Seek the Lord first and everything will be given to you." They will stay in the BIBLE BELT, which is Nashville. Once in a while for Award Show Performance and Live Tour Performance is acceptable.

    ^ being a Christian has zero to do with playing Vegas. No one gets to decide what is acceptable for Carrie but Carrie.

    I doubt she does it anytime soon if she ever does because they have worked so hard making Nashville home plus Carrie likes to visit new places when she tours so I doubt she would play in one place other than maybe the Ryman.
