Tim McGraw & Faith Hill Announce Encore Run of “SOUL2SOUL”
In the wake of sold out shows and insatiable fan demand, superstar entertainers Tim McGRaw and Faith Hill have announced an encore run of their limited engagement Soul2Soul at The Venetian Las Vegas in its intimate 1,815-seat Venetian Theatre. The run will open on Oct. 25- 26 and cover 10 select weekends through April 2014. Ticket pre-sales will begin Aug. 13 and tickets for the general public will go on sale Aug 17.

"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. The Venetian really rolled out the red carpet and made the whole experience so easy for us," explained Hill. "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 on-stage and offstage, but it seemed like it was over just as we were getting good and warmed up," added McGraw. "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."
Critics were unanimous praising Soul2Soul at The Venetian Las Vegas for its authenticity and McGraw and Hill for the undeniable on-stage chemistry first witnessed over a decade ago on the record breaking first run of their Soul2Soul arena tour. That collaboration has gone on to become the top grossing North American tour in country music history, as well as an unrivaled concert experience the pair have successfully reinvented to meet mile-high expectations.
