“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,” Faith said. “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 for 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,” Tim said. ”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.”

Members of The Venetian’s loyalty program, Grazie, as well as Tim and Faith fan club members, will be able to purchase advance tickets through pre-sales starting Tuesday, August 13. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on August 17 at 10 a.m. PST.

Tim McGraw Calls Performing With Faith Hill Inspiring

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill

Tim McGraw is a talented singer in his own right and has 33 No. 1 hits to prove it. But when he’s performing on stage with wife Faith Hill during their Soul2Soul shows in Las Vegas, he calls singing next to her both inspiring and challenging.

Tim is GAC’s February Artist of the Month. Click HERE to see our new interviews with him, read our review of Two Lanes of Freedom and take our Tim McGraw Celebrity Quiz!

“I don’t get to sing with my wife that much,” Tim said. “Only when we tour together and a handful of charity events have we ever been on stage together and actually sang together. So, it always sort of sets me aback a bit to be up there and to hear her sing. Because she’s truly one of the greatest singers I’ve ever heard.” Continue Reading

2012 Rewind: No. 2 – Garth Closes Las Vegas Show as Shania Twain, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill Begin Theirs

Nashville is still ground zero for country music, but a few of the genre’s biggest stars have headed to Las Vegas. Garth Brooks wrapped his three-year run of one man shows at Encore Theater in the Wynn in November. Wife Trisha Yearwood was on hand for the emotional final performance, which Garth later told the Las Vegas Sun wasn’t his greatest performance of all time.

“It wasn’t the best show over the three years because I was too emotional,” he said. “I was getting ready to go out there and kick some ass, and then Steve [Wynn] did an introduction, and I was toast after that.”

Garth’s final show lasted nearly two hours. He sang hits by some of his favorite artists as well as his own hits and was joined by Trisha for two duets and again as the curtain came down. Garth hopes to return to the Wynn to tape the show for a television special. Rumors are also flying that he will resume touring in 2014. Continue Reading

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are used to performing on stage with big production numbers. Their fans also expect lots of exciting sights and sounds from the pair. For those planning to see Tim and Faith in their Soul2Soul show at The Venetian in Las Vegas though, they’re in for a different kind of performance.

“It’s such an intimate setting,” Tim said. “I think that the main thing that we’re going to look at it is, as a chance to really connect with a small amount of people. Eighteen hundred people at one time in which… is a totally different thing than anything that we’re used to doing.”

The new Soul2Soul show isn’t like any of the pair’s previous Soul2Soul tours either. “In the past, it’s been two songs together then Faith would do her show, then we’d do two songs together, then I would do my show and then we would do 2 or 3 songs together at the end,” Tim said. “So it’s been us together touring, but it’s also been our shows individually at the same time. That was really the focus of doing this, is this is really a chance to do something in a setting in one place, in a small, intimate setting that we could actually be onstage the entire time together.”

Soul2Soul opened in Las Vegas last weekend. The pair have nine more weekends scheduled at The Venetian through April.

Tim McGraw has seen success in both film and music all the while juggling a home life that includes wife Faith Hill and their three daughters. What is his key to success? Focusing on one thing at a time, regardless of whether it’s playing a sold out show or driving the carpool.

“No matter what my project is for that day, whether I’m going to a movie, or going to the studio, or going to write a song, or taking the kids to school or going to coach something, is to try to do the best I can at it,” he said. “I can’t think about what the end results are gonna be of it. I gotta think about what I’m gonna do when I go in there that day to do it.” Continue Reading

Tim McGraw & Faith Hill Plan Set List for Las Vegas Show

When Tim McGraw and Faith Hill take the stage for their new Las Vegas show, their focus will be on performing together, which means they won’t be singing a lot of their individual hits. The pair have been finding songs they can sing together, such as classics from Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty or George Jones and Tammy Wynette.

“We’re going to do some different stuff,” Tim said. “There’s a list of those kind of songs that we want to figure out what’s the coolest thing for us to do and the most fun that we’ll have doing the things the audience will enjoy hearing the most. But, I mean, God, there’s so many great duets out there that are fun to do.” Continue Reading

He’s ready for the change of venue, going from performing to 50,000-60,000 fans a night to about 1,800. “It makes me nervous to be that intimate,” Tim admitted.

Other than the early days of his career when he cut his teeth playing clubs or the Bread and Water club shows he’s played after some of his concerts, he has hasn’t done many smaller venues. He likes to joke about his club show days. Continue Reading

A ticket pre-sale will begin tomorrow and tickets for the general public will go on sale Monday, Aug. 13.

“Soul2Soul” at The Venetian will mark the first time in six years that Tim and Faith have performed together in the United States. “Soul2Soul” will feature an all-new production with innovative lighting and set design technologies that were synonymous with the “Soul2Soul” concerts.  The Venetian Theater will also be modified to accommodate this new production.  These “Soul2Soul” concerts will include many of the No. 1 hits that have made them, both in their own right, two of the most significant entertainers of our generation.

“We are creating a show that will be completely different from what we’ve done before – and might ever do again,” said Tim and Faith. “In arenas and stadiums, you’re always faced with the challenge of finding ways to make people feel closer to the action, no matter where they might be sitting.
