From February 25 to April 2, Silk Sonic will be performing a 13-date residency at Dolby Live in Las Vegas.
It's the hippest trip in Las Vegas. On Wednesday, Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak took to social media to announce their first Las Vegas residency as Silk Sonic. "An Evening With Silk Sonic" will take place at Park MGM's Dolby Live for 13 dates beginning next month.
"The terms is locked and Vegas might not ever be the same Jack!!" .Paak wrote on his Instagram. "You’re invited to the hottest show in sin city!"
"Its happening! [sic] The sexiest party of the year! Them Silk Sonic Boyz are performing Live in Las Vegas!" Mars added on Twitter.

Titled after their 2021 collaborative debut, the residency is sure to reintroduce fans to singles like "Leave the Door Open" and "Smokin Out the Window," but it's likely that Mars and .Paak will perform hits from their individual catalogs, too. The residency announcement comes after the duo were nominated for Outstanding Duo, Outstanding Album, Outstanding Music Video/Visual Album ("Leave the Door Open"), and Outstanding Soul/R&B Song ("Leave the Door Open") for the 53rd NAACP Image Awards.
