Toby Keith announces two Las Vegas headlining concerts

The country star will perform at Dolby Live at Park MGM

Toby Keith is back! Just as the superstar returns to the top of the charts, the Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee announces that he will headline two shows at Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas on December 10th and 11th.

“Y’all been waiting a long time to hear this, I’ve been waiting a long time to do this. I’m back, come see me. You’ll have the best time, I will too. We’ll never forget it. Can’t wait to see you there. Let’s go,” added Keith.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, October 27th at 10 am via Ticketmaster.

For the past few months, Keith has been making public appearances with hometown shows and the recent live-television performance on the People’s Choice Country Awards, signaling his return to touring after an 18-month break to focus on his health following a stomach cancer diagnosis.

Over this summer’s Independence Day holiday weekend, Keith surprised Oklahomans with two pop-up concerts, where he performed for hours at the historic Hollywood Corners Roadhouse in Norman. “This was supposed to be a secret,” Keith said to the bigger-than-expected crowd, as noted by a fan interviewed by The Oklahoman. The fan added, “He seemed taken aback that that many people were there.”

Just weeks prior to that, he hosted his annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic, which raised a record $1.8 million for the families of children battling critical illness in the Oklahoma City area.

Keith has teamed with Big Machine for “Don’t Let The Old Man In” which he performed on the PPCC Awards. The song jumped to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Digital Song Sales chart and Top 3 on the all-genre chart this week and claimed the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Country Songs and Videos charts and Top 3 in the all-genre charts the week prior.

On November 3rd, he will release the album 100% Songwriter, a selection of 13 of many of his most iconic solo-written songs collected in one package. Arguably one of the most successful self-directed recording artists of any era, Keith has had many hits with a wide array of co-writers and a handful from outside writers. Perhaps most impressive is how many of his most iconic songs he wrote by himself, which puts him in league with performing songwriters including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton.
