Reba, Brooks & Dunn Together Again

Country Superstars at Caesars Palace

Country comes to The Colosseum. Five years after their “Last Rodeo” tour, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are returning to the stage—and country’s leading lady, Reba, is joining them. The trio, who last toured together in the late 1990s, will start headlining at Caesars Palace this summer. And judging from their back-and-forth banter, these lifelong friends are ready to roll.

How did the idea of headlining in Las Vegas come about?
Reba: “We were all at dinner one night in Nashville and somebody said, wouldn’t it be cool if you went out and did some shows together. Kix said, ‘I’m for it.’ I looked at Ronnie and he said, ‘I’m for it’; and I said, ‘You know I’m in.’ To come here with my two best friends is a dream come true.”
Brooks: “We go on vacations together. We love hanging out and we love playing music. We figured, let’s do it somewhere besides a campfire so some folks will show up and hear us again.”

CONCERT DATES

JUNE 17, 19, 20, 24, 26, 27
JULY 1, 3, 4
DECEMBER 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 12

You guys took a few years off. Do you feel reenergized?
Brooks: “It’s a great way for Ronnie and I to get back together. We made a lot of great music. Those songs are still a big part of our lives and we’re looking forward to singing them again. We know from experience working with Reba that there is nobody we’d rather hang out with and sing with.”
Dunn: “We decided to quit when it felt right and walked away feeling good about what we had done. This (idea to perform together again) just came out of nowhere. I guess I just won’t go fishing for a few days. I’ll just play music instead.”

What can fans expect from this show?
Reba: “It’s going to be packed with the number one songs we’re all so blessed to have.”
Brooks: “Thank God we have some hits. We’ll start shuffling those around and hopefully they’ll make some sense. Then we’ll see how the lights, camera and action come into play. We know the chemistry works. We’ve been out there and rolled with it. We have a lot of great memories. We’re looking forward to making more.”
Dunn: “It’ll be a constant work in progress. I think spontaneity is really important when you do a gig like this. You want to keep it evolving, not box it in.” Will it be an over-the-top show?
Reba: “Ronnie has a red-sequin dress he’s going to wear. He’s going to be the flash and sparkle for this.”
Dunn: “We haven’t talked about that yet (laughs). We know we have a gig. Now we have to put a show together.”
