Anyone in the Chicagoland or western Indiana area looking for an evening of great entertainment, an abuzz atmosphere, and incredible music this month has found the right place — The Venue at the Horseshoe Casino, featuring none other than singing legend Reba McEntire. As a key piece of The Venue’s spring lineup this 2014, one of the most excitedly awaited shows of the entire season that country music fans are raring to experience features the one and only Reba. The 59-year-old star will be making a special appearance at the casino for one night only on May 16 at 8 p.m., and you don’t want to miss this icon’s stellar performance.
Reba McEntire is a household name, and it isn’t hard to see why. The talented singer, songwriter, and actress has had a long incredibly successful career, not to mention her status as a style and celebrity symbol. For those wishing to read just a bit of what the “How Blue” artist has accomplished, The Venue’s online website provides a brief biography of the gifted woman:
“The Horseshoe welcomes country music singer Reba McEntire to The Venue stage! One might expect iconic country music star Reba to take a break – or at the very least a quick breather – after her astonishing career that has produced over 56 million in worldwide album sales; 64 Top 10 hits; the #1 TV sitcom for 6 consecutive years on two networks; successful clothing, footwear and home collections; as well as a stint on Broadway that garnered a Drama Critics Award. As if that wasn't enough, Reba is also the recipient of 15 American Music Awards, 13, ACM Awards, 9 People’s Choice Awards, 7 Country Music Association Awards, 2 Grammys and is one of only four entertainers in history to be honored with a National Artistic Achievement Award by US Congress. Don’t miss Reba McEntire’s Chicago show at Horseshoe.”
With the show date almost upon us this 16th, there’s no time to waste. Great seats remain available, and a number of tickets (through the Ticketmaster site) can be found online for this upcoming entertainment event via this link.
