An Evening with Silk Sonic runs at Park MGM

Due to overwhelming demand during pre-sales, multi-GRAMMY Award-nominated duo Silk Sonic have announced it will add an additional set of May performances to its previously announced engagement at Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas.

The full list of shows now include February 25 and 26; March 2, 4, 5, 16, 18, 19, 23, 25, 26 and 31; April 2; May 4, 6, 7, 10, 13, 14, 17, 20, 21, 25, 28 and 29.

Tickets start at $125, plus applicable service charges, and go on sale to the general public Friday, January 21st at 10 am PST via Ticketmaster.

Silk Sonic introduced “Leave The Door Open” in March 2021 alongside an official music video directed by Mars and Florent Déchard, which won Best R&B Video and Best Editing at the 2021 MTV Music Video Awards. The track was followed by a hugely popular social media campaign, #LetSilkSonicThrive, which earned them a debut live performance at the GRAMMY Awards (plus a powerful tribute to Little Richard) followed quickly by iconic live sets at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and the BET Awards.

“Leave The Door Open” became Silk Sonic’s first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, spending two non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 and 18 consecutive weeks in the top 10. In the meantime, their infectious jingle co-written and performed for SelvaRey Rum amassed wide scale praise over the summer. The duo then coasted into their sophomore release of “Skate,” which saw them glide into a second top 10 hit on Billboards Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs as it debuted at No. 4 and began as the genre’s best-selling song of the week.

“Smokin Out The Window” arrived in November 2021. Following the vibey single, the duo released the critically acclaimed album, An Evening With Silk Sonic. Silk Sonic is officially GRAMMY nominated with their debut hit and 2021 summertime anthem, “Leave The Door Open,” earning four 2022 GRAMMY Awards nominations in Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, and Best R&B Song categories.
