Carrie Underwood posted a few photos from the first night back at her epic Las Vegas residency, REFLECTION, gushing over the electrifying energy and the Vegas crowd as she reflected on the performance on Thursday morning (June 22).
“We’re back, baby! Our first show back (at Resorts World Theater) was SO much FUN!!!” Underwood wrote in her caption on Instagram as she shared some snapshots by photographer Jeff Johnson, capturing some of the jaw-dropping moments throughout the show. Later in the day, she shared another recap of the first show back in her residency. “Vegas crowds are always amazing! Thanks for having some fun with us on a Wednesday night!”
Underwood is pictured alongside a group of denim-clad backup dancers, singing in the midst of an onstage waterfall, and alongside fiery effects and with breathtaking aerial performers. The “Ghost Story” megastar was the first artist to take the stage as a resident headliner at the 5,000-capacity venue. The residency initially kicked off in 2021 and started again with a new list of dates in 2023, at the heels of Underwood’s “Denim & Rhinestones Tour” in support of her latest full-length album. She’s due to release the Denim & Rhinestones deluxe edition with six new tracks — including “Out Of That Truck” and “Take Me Out” — this September.
“I’m thrilled to be returning to Resorts World Las Vegas next summer,” Underwood previously said in a statement. “REFLECTION is a show I’m so proud of and have so much fun performing. I love being out on the road with THE DENIM & RHINESTONES TOUR and look forward to returning to Vegas once that wraps, as it has become our home away from home where we get to play to audiences from all over the world.”
