The Judds are reuniting for Girls Night Out, a nine-show residency at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Las Vegas.
Running Oct. 7-24, the engagement marks the duo’s first concerts together in almost five years. The set is expected to include their biggest hits (including “Love Can Build a Bridge,” “Why Not Me” and “Give a Little Love”) and Wynonna’s solo hits (including “No One Else on Earth” and “I Saw the Light.”
“Over the years, people have asked me about a Judds reunion, and I have always said the door is open,” Wynonna said in announcing the Vegas shows. “When this opportunity was presented to me, I looked at it as an incredible chance to celebrate my mom. I have a new album coming out soon, and this is the perfect way to honor the roots that gave me the wings to fly.”
“This show is for the fans -- the fans that I have missed every single day since leaving the stage,” Naomi Judd added. “Every artist goes through a time in their career where they feel that it’s time to call it quits, but once it’s in your blood and you’re still able to do it, you can’t not do it. It will be the thrill of my life to join Wynonna on the stage again in Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world.”
The Judds have reunited for two tours since their 1991 farewell tour when Naomi chose to curtail her performances after being diagnosed with hepatitis C.
Residencies at Las Vegas theaters have become popular among country stars, including Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Reba and Brooks & Dunn resume their shows at Caesars Palace in December.
Dates for the Judds’ performances are set for Oct. 7, 10, 13-14, 16-17, 21 and 23-24. Tickets go on sale Friday (Aug. 28) at The Venetian box office and website.
