We are going to be bold and claim that The Judds “Girls Night Out” concert engagement is the mother/ daughter reunion of the century… at least in the wide world of country music, that is. Having not performed together in nearly five years, the dynamic red-haired duo decided to join forces once again and, luckily for us, they decided to do it in Vegas. Let’s just say, these two still know how to put on a phenomenal show.
With three performances already chiseled from their eight-show engagement at The Venetian, the famed Wynonna and Naomi Judd perform a collection of their most beloved hits such as “Love Can Build a Bridge,” “Why Not Me,” “Give A Little Love” as well as the residency’s signature song, “Girls Night Out.”
In addition to singing the songs that put their names on the map as a duo, we also loved watching Wynonna and her band, The Big Noise (led by her husband and drummer Cactus Moser), perform solo numbers including “No One Else on Earth” and “I Saw The Light” in addition to various other songs from their forthcoming self-titled album due out on Curb Records February 2016.
In one word, we are claiming their performance as authentic. Sticking to the simplicity of classic country music and their undeniable talent, Wynonna wore a beautiful black ensemble and even kicked off her shoes while her mama dressed it up a bit more and wowed the audience in three dazzling dresses: one plush with feathers, one glamorously covered in Swarovski crystals and finally a ball gown fit for true country music royalty.
The multi-generational audience sang, danced and even cried along to the timeless classics that have been ingrained in fans’ hearts for decades. Closing out the 90-minute show to the roar of a standing ovation, the audience was treated to a special encore that included Naomi and Wynonna’s husbands, Larry Strickland and Cactus, who joined the duo on stage.
Since launching their career in the ’80s, this dynamic duo has amassed numerous awards including multiple Grammys and is noted as one of the most successful acts in country music history. But aside from their impressive history, we were most captivated by the passion the two put into their music as they performed; behind every note was a powerful emotion and it was clear that the audience could feel the energy surging off the stage.
Don’t miss your chance to take it back to the roots of country music and reminisce on the “Good Old Days” with The Judds while they are in Sin City.
