After a successful fall and winter run at the Venetian, country superstars and couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are returning for an encore performance of their joint stage show “Soul2Soul,” confirming previous reports by Robin Leach and Vegas DeLuxe.
“Soul2Soul” returns to the Strip beginning Oct. 25-26 and includes 10 select weekends through April 2014. Ticket pre-sales begin Tuesday, and tickets for the public go on sale Aug. 17; go to Venetian.com for more information.
“Tim and I love performing together, but it’s been such a scheduling challenge the last few years because we have two careers and three teenage daughters’ school and social calendars to coordinate around,” Hill said in a news release this morning. “The Venetian really rolled out the red carpet and made the whole experience so easy for us.
“It was a treat to be able to take what we’ve done on previous ‘Soul2Soul Tours,’ shake it up, rework it and create something totally new for that venue. It was a really special moment in time for us and our fans.”
“We made the most out of our short time in Vegas and had a lot of fun onstage and offstage, but it seemed like it was over just as we were getting good and warmed up,” McGraw added. “The reaction was impossible to ignore, so it was a total no-brainer to add more shows when the Venetian asked us. It’s been an ideal way for us to be able to perform together.”
“We’re thrilled to announce the return of ‘Soul2Soul’ at the Venetian,” said John Caparella, president and COO for the Venetian, Palazzo and Sands Expo. “Tim and Faith created a really special, up-close-and-personal experience for fans, and there’s no doubt the show will sizzle again.”

In the spirit of Venice, The Venetian is a little piece of romantic Italy right here in Las Vegas. The Venetian is an "all-suite" hotel, with rooms accented with plush linens and Italian marble. The 4,027 suites are divided into two towers: The 36-story Venetian Tower that offers guests a taste of luxurious Las Vegas and the Venezia suites, which guarantee 12 floors of high-end elegance. The top five floors are the hotel's highest level of luxury with its private access, concierge lounge, upgraded features and even a dedicated staff.
The flagship of Venetian nightlife is TAO, an ultra-hip nightclub located inside of TAO Asian Bistro. V Bar is The Venetian's super smooth ultra lounge, made by the owners of New York City's club Lotus and Los Angeles' super swank Sunset Room.
The Venetian features 19 restaurants including Thomas Keller's award-winning French restaurant Bouchon, Mario Batali's B&B Ristorante, Aquaknox for fresh seafood and the 42,000 square foot TAO Asian Bistro. There's also the food court inside the Canal Shoppes for those looking for a quick bite.
Guests can float along The Grand Canal Shops in an authentic Italian gondola ride and pass stores like Burberry and Kenneth Cole along the way. And if you haven't caught a real celeb, on the street in Vegas, you can head over to Madame Tussauds to check out a wax version.
