Road Trip GJ to Vegas – Last Chance to See Reba and B&D Residency
After a year-and-a-half of cancelations, Reba will return to her residency at Caesars in Las Vegas. Road trip! Here are my top five reasons to make the drive from Grand Junction to Las Vegas to see this show.
Reba and Brooks & Dunn continued to add more and more dates to their Las Vegas residency. What began as a short residency in Las Vegas has turned into a six year gig, give or take a year or so thanks to COVID.
The Good News First
Reba and Brooks & Dunn have set up shop in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The venue is awesome, the acts are great, and the ticket price is hard to beat.
They will return in 2021 to reignite their Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Show dates are scheduled for:
- December 1
- December 3
- December 4
- December 7
- December 8
- December 10
- December 11
- December 14
- December 15
Now For the Bad News
This is it. They've enjoyed a magnificent six-year run, but all good things must come to an end. Even their showbill states, "Final Shows!" This marks the end of their residency in Las Vegas, the longest-running residency in Vegas history.
Incredible Concert Event
I was able to catch them in late 2016, and then again in June of 2017, and again in 2018. No disrespect to Brooks & Dunn, but my primary interest in this show would be the redhead. I've been a Reba fanatic for over 25 years with no end in sight. Her newer material is up to par with her previous hits, and her show is better than ever.
This is Why You Should See Them in Las Vegas
Do you know what I love about the Colosseum at Caesars? It's a theater, as in a "venue." Most of my career has been spent hosting festivals. There's something to be said about having an assigned seat at a theater versus sitting in the dirt surrounded by rowdy people.
With a concert venue like Caesars, it's possible for me to see Reba's butt.....er... I mean, hear her sing, without someone blocking my view or creating a commotion.
Getting There is Part of the Fun
You may be asking yourself, "Hey, Waylon, why drive? Why Can't we fly?" Well, you can. In my opinion, though, the drive is half the fun. It's a peaceful, stress-relieving drive.
Grand Junction to Las Vegas comes in at just about seven hours. If you stop in Mesquite for the very awesome restaurant just off I-15, it takes a little longer. If you stop at the fireworks mega-outlet between Mesquite and Las Vegas, it takes longer yet.
Waylon's Top 5 Reasons to Attend
Here are five reasons why you should stop what you're doing and get tickets to see Reba in Las Vegas.
- The Colosseum is an awesome venue; there isn't a bad seat in the house. This is the right way to SEE Reba.
- The ticket price is pretty hard to beat. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 6, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. Mountain Time.
- Reba is at her best RIGHT NOW. Four decades of material and an intimate venue in which to present it.
- The show is a bit nostalgic, reflecting the mid-90's when Reba and Brooks & Dunn used to tour together. You know... back when Country music was GREAT!
- Reba is a world-class entertainer, period. It's always great to see her, but it's even better up close and personal.

I snapped a few photos using my dumbphone. This show is a major production. Fascinating sets, numerous wardrobe changes, and incredible lighting.
