The Judds reunite for Vegas shows

Monday, August 24, 2015 – The Judds, will reunite for Girls Night Out, a nine-show residency at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Las Vegas, Oct. 7-24.

Produced by AEG Live, Girls Night Out will mark the first concerts by Naomi and Wynonna Judd together in nearly five years. "Love Can Build a Bridge," "Why Not Me," "Give A Little Love" and "Girls Night Out" are among the hit songs by The Judds.

Girls Night Out will feature an all-new show created specifically for the Las Vegas audience featuring a set list handpicked by Wynonna and Naomi. Performances will take place Oct. 7, 10, 13, 14, 16, 17, 21, 23 and 24.

"Over the years, people have asked me about a Judds reunion, and I have always said the door is open," Wynonna said. "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," said Naomi. "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."

Since landing their first chart-topping hit "Mama, He's Crazy" in 1984, the pair has earned 14 number 1 hits, 5 GRAMMYs, 9 CMA Awards and 8 ACM Awards.

Naomi Judd previously has retired from touring due to health issues.

Tickets start at $59.50 (plus applicable fees) and go on sale Friday, Aug. 28 at 10 a.m. PDT at any Venetian or Palazzo Box Office, online at www.venetian.com/thejudds or by calling (702) 414-9000 or (866) 641-7469.

Sing CD review - Sing
Wynonna is using the occasion of her 25 years in the music business to release a collection of music that has captured a significant memory in her life. She is hoping that it does the same for the listeners. The only problem is that often there isn't any special feeling that comes, either from her vocal presentation or from the musical arrangements. True, there is just one truly horrible moment, the rendition of Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. »»»
A Classic Christmas CD review - A Classic Christmas
Wynonna's first Christmas album as a solo singer is a truly great album with great music from start to finish. She does a fine job with the upbeat songs. She approaches "Winter Wonderland" and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" with a jazzy vocal that complements the light-hearted lyrics. But she really shines on the ballads. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is one highlight. The production is unobtrusive, and Wynonna's deep, rich voice is perfectly »»»
Her Story: Scenes From A Lifetime CD review - Her Story: Scenes From A Lifetime
What a story Wynonna has had growing up poor with her mother Naomi before the mother/daughter duo rose to great success in the '90s until hepatitis kept Naomi off the road and led to Wy going out on her own. This live set, recorded at the Ryman Feb. 1, offers music from throughout Wy's career. As she sings at the end of the opening "Dreamchaser," "Dreamchaser, that's what I am." Judd maintains an easy-going demeanor throughout sounding tougher on occasion while »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
