It’s Official! Anita Baker Announces Las Vegas Residency

Published: Tuesday 26th Mar 2019 by Rashad

Sweet news for fans of ‘Sweet Love’ singer Anita Baker.

Just three months after taking to Twitter to deny a Las Vegas residency was in the works (despite previously alluding to a run on the Strip), the Queen of Quiet Storm has sent her fans into a royal frenzy with official news that she will indeed be bringing her smooth sounds to Sin City.

Details inside:

Via press release:

As part of her farewell concert series, R&B music legend and eight-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer / songwriter Anita Baker will perform at The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas for a five-night limited engagement inside The Venetian Theatre. The show will be held May 31 and June 1, 5, 7 and 8, 2019 at 8 p.m.

*****

Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 29 at 10 a.m. PT and can be found at Ticketmaster.comvenetian.com, or any box office at The Venetian Resort.  Grazie loyalty members and Live Nation and Ticketmaster customers will receive access to a pre-sale beginning Wednesday, March. 27 at 10 a.m. PT. All pre-sales will end Thursday, March 28 at 10 p.m. PT.
Joining the likes of a host of legendary divas who have taken their talents to the Strip (see:  Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, etc.), the news comes as quite the fitting inclusion to the singer’s farewell outing.  Announced in January 2018 (as we reported here), the “concert series” has seen the diva touch down in several major U.S. cities including Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Nashville, New York, and more – much to the delight of dedicated fans.  Performing to packed houses at every juncture of the jaunt, the run has only increased calls for new music from the ‘Giving You the Best That I Got’ singer.
While we await updates on that, Baker has confirmed the conclusion of her concert series won’t be the last we’ll hear from her as her official biopic and memoir are in the works as well.  Click here to read more on that.
