Tim McGraw and Faith Hill announce run of shows in Las Vegas

Country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are heading to Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS — Country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are heading to Las Vegas.

They will be performing a 10-weekend run of shows at The Venetian starting Dec. 7. The couple announced the news Tuesday during a press conference at the hotel.

Sitting on a white leather sofa in the 1800-seat theatre where the show will take place, McGraw welcomed everyone to their part-time Vegas home.

Hill said they were thrilled about the opportunity to be creative in a way they’ve never experienced together before.

“Being in this intimate environment, it will be ’us,”’ added McGraw.

“I’m very excited.”

The show is called Soul2Soul, named after their hugely successful co-headlining tours in 2000 and 2006.

According to Pollstar, their 2006-2007 Soul2Soul II run remains the highest grossing North American tour in country music history.

The Vegas shows will mark the first time in six years that McGraw and Hill have performed a full concert together in the United States.

McGraw said they are in the process of building the show and promises that the production will be cutting edge.

They may be superstars, but McGraw and Hill are also full-time parents of three daughters. Hill said the Venetian worked around their children’s school schedules to make this happen.

McGraw said his daughters, two of whom are teenagers, are excited to see the shows in Vegas, joking that “they probably won’t see ours, though.”

Pre-sale tickets go on sale today and open to the general public Monday.

The couple have sold more than 70 million albums and charted more than 40 No. 1 hits between them.
