Journey have added four more dates to their 2019 Las Vegas residency including shows on December 27, 28, 30, and 31 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Previously announced dates include: October 9, 11, 12, 16, 18, 19, 23, 25, and 26.
Keyboardist Jonathan Cain told Billboard the following about the new dates:
“We don’t usually play a New Year’s Eve show. How quick the [other] shows sold sealed the idea and this year it made sense for all of us.”
He also added:
“I always tell people, there’s a heart in Vegas you haven’t seen yet. You don’t have to look too far to find it. Back in the day nobody wanted to play Vegas — and now it has become the place to play.”

Singer Joe Elliott commented:
“Five years ago, we played our first-ever residency in Las Vegas which was relatively new ground for a rock band giving this kind of experience… I have to say, we really enjoyed it! Being in one place for the best part of a month is vastly different to our normal city to city touring routine. Breaking this cycle adds another element to the experience for both us and the audience. We look forward to seeing you at the Zappos Theater this summer!”
Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, added:
“Planet Hollywood transformed the entertainment landscape in Las Vegas with the first pop residency. We are proud to be at the forefront of rock residencies as well and treat the city’s visitors to a new type of experience with Def Leppard.”

According to Best Classic Bands, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry has revealed that the band will be celebrating their 50th anniversary with a Las Vegas residency. He confirmed the news during a live interview on “Fab Fourum” on SiriusXM’s Beatles Channel. The official announcement will be made during the group’s August 15 appearance on the “Today” show.
Perry said the following:
“We’re going to be doing a residency in Vegas starting next spring. What we want to do is something that I haven’t seen before… just downsizing our live show, just playing in a smaller place. We want to do something different. We’re in the middle of the production now. What we’re talking about is having an experience that you wouldn’t be able to see on a regular Aerosmith tour.”
“I feel like we’ve been out of the wind for a while and it seems like it would be a really cool thing to bring some of the history back, so the production is gonna look like that. But without losing what we are: a hardcore rock and roll band.
“We’re having almost weekly conversations about the production and how we’re gonna keep it true and honest to the heartbeat of the rock and roll that we play but still add an element that people will want to see. I haven’t been this excited about a project with Aerosmith in quite a while.”

“Now, we just have to cast our showgirls, create our set list – a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace. Maybe we can even marry someone onstage… The possibilities in Vegas are endless.”
