Mission Accomplished for Tim and Faith in Vegas
Nashville, TN- Dec. 10, 2012- Marking the first time they have performed together in six years in the U.S., superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill dazzled audiences with the kick off of "Soul2Soul" at The Venetian Theater this past weekend. Their smash filled set inside the intimate venue invites the audience to get up close and personal with McGraw and Hill as never seen before. In between solo hits like McGraw's "Real Good Man" and Hill's "Breathe" as well as their current singles "One Of Those Nights" and “American Heart” the powerhouse husband and wife duo deliver crowd favorites "It's Your Love" and "Like We Never Loved At All” along with surprising covers and interactive moments with the audience. The 10 weekend limited engagement runs through April.
"…the show puts the focus squarely on its two superstars, and considering the rousing ovations McGraw and Hill received Saturday, that's perfectly fine with their fans." PEOPLE Magazine
"All the power of an arena show had been squeezed into a concert theater and kept so private and personal, one actually feels cherished by both of them." Las Vegas Sun
"Hill and McGraw delivered a high-energy but often intimate show that prompted multiple standing ovations, overhead clapping and arms stretched to the theater's domed ceiling." Tennessean
Collectively, they’ve sold 70 million albums, won eight Grammy Awards, 15 Country Music Association Awards, 14 American Music Awards, seven People’s Choice Awards and 26 Academy of Country Music Awards. McGraw and Hill have been dominating the music charts since the early ‘90s and began performing together in 2000 in their record-breaking “Soul2Soul” tour, becoming that year’s top grossing and most successful U.S. tour. Their success continued in 2006 when “Soul2Soul II” returned to the road. It became the highest grossing country music tour of all time, the most attended of the year in any musical genre and remains the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history. "Soul2Soul" at The Venetian Theater continues next weekend, Dec.14 &15, and covers 8 more weekends in 2013.
They looks great..they sounded great....Tim and Faith's opening weekend in Las Vegas at the Venetian Hotel. An 1800 seat theater instead of an arena...300 buck seats for the first few rows...It was worth every penny to watch these two married people hold hands,kiss and sing to each other.. This may be the hottest date show ever... So romantic even a hard hearted guy would agree. It was a great show...highly recommend!!
ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!
Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
