It was a rare Las Vegas visit for movie superstar Johnny Depp and his wife, Amber Heard.

The duo, who are not often seen on the Strip, flew in to catch the final concerts of this year’s Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn headliner run at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace.

Johnny, widely known for his “Pirates of the Caribbean” blockbuster franchise, and Amanda, in headlines this past week for a canine controversy in Australia, enjoyed the Friday night performance of “Reba and Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas” and went backstage post-concert to greet the top-selling country artists.

The trio had three added performances this past week to meet extraordinary ticket demand during the 10-day 2015 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo at the Thomas & Mack Center that wraps today.

Reba and Brooks & Dunn are set for a second year of shows in 2016, but I’m reliably told that they’ll get the opportunity to add performance dates due to their 2015 success story.

“There have already been preliminary talks for more dates than originally set for next year,” I was told. “The invitation is there. They just have to build them into their schedules.”
