Miranda Lambert Shares Footage From The Opening Night Of Her Las Vegas Residency

Miranda Lambert celebrates the sold-out opening of “Velvet Rodeo” Vegas residency at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

The “Miranda Lambert: Velvet Rodeo The Las Vegas Residency” is officially in full swing.

The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year kicked off her highly anticipated debut in sin city over the weekend (Sept. 23) and brought the heat to the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Lambert pulled from her impressive repertoire to deliver hits from the beginning of her flourishing career to her recent record, “Palomino.”

The hitmaker kept the sold-out crowd on their feet throughout the 22-song setlist, which displayed her GRAMMY Award-winning vocals and contagious stage presence. While sporting a bright blue embroidered ensemble and diamond-encrusted cowgirl hat, Lambert opened her eight-month residency with the high-energy single “Actin’ Up” and followed with a captivating rendition of “Fastest Girl In Town.”

“We’ve been dreaming up this show for so long to make it something special for the fans and to celebrate all the music we’ve enjoyed together over the years,” said Lambert. “It felt amazing to finally take everything we’ve rehearsed and share it with that room full of people. I can’t wait to do it again next weekend and to make Vegas our own supersized honky tonk for months to come!”

Lambert brought her close friends and longtime band along for the wild ride. Ethan Ballinger [guitar], Jerry Massey [guitar], Spencer Cullum [steel guitarist], Daniel Mitchell [ keys player], Jonathan Murray [bassist], Max Zemanovic [drummer], and Gwen Sebastian [backing vocalist] accompanied Lambert for the entire 90-minute show.

“We made it! We’re so damn glad to be playing for people tonight; we’ve been rehearsing for a really long, long time,” Lambert told the boisterous audience before sharing her 2011 hit “All Kinds Of Kinds,” that pushes for inclusivity. “This song is your friendly reminder to be who you are, always, all the time – ‘cause you just might end up in Vegas on a stage with bright lights, you never know!”

Throughout the weekend, the songstress leaked behind-the-scenes footage from her buzz-worthy act. Before the doors opened to the public, Lambert revealed a clip from the dress rehearsal. A team member captured Lambert elevating to the stage on a moving platform in a western-inspired outfit. The following day, Lambert shared herself getting ready for the big night. Her hairdresser curled her blonde luscious locks, as she sipped on white wine in a personalized residency robe.

“It’s go time Las Vegas!!!” she wrote alongside the video backed by her chart-topping hit “Geraldene.”

On Saturday (Sept. 23), Lambert revealed a highlight reel that showcased the hottest moments from the Raj Kapoor-produced show. The social snippet featured blazing flames, Lambert interacting with ticket-holders, and her name printed across billboards throughout the lively city. The video was also paired with a voice-over acknowledging that the must-see run will be a “one-of-a-kind experience” and served as a warning to fans that they should bring their “A-game.”

Lambert has already brought her big as Texas wow-factor to the venue and left a significant mark on the legendary stage. Tickets for shows through April 9, 2023, are currently available for purchase. The “Bluebird” singer has teamed up with Live Nation Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment to donate $1 of every purchase to Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation, a nonprofit that encourages pet-lovers to adopt and not shop.
