Dwight Yoakam Announces 9-Date Las Vegas Residency

Dwight Yoakam will bring his distinctive croon and swiveling hips to the Wynn’s Encore Theater in Las Vegas for nine dates this winter.

The nine-date residency, billed as An Evening with Dwight Yoakam & the Bakersfield Beat, is scheduled to take place on Dec. 4, 6, 7, 10, 12 and 14, as well as March 4, 6 and 7.

Beginning with the Dust Bowl era, Dwight will take the audience on a musical excursion exploring the history of the sounds associated with Bakersfield, Calif., through songs and storytelling. The showcase will reflect the concepts that created his self-curated SiriusXM channel, Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat.

Tickets ($59.50–$175 plus fees) go on sale on Aug. 23 at 10 a.m. PDT.
