Upon today's announcement of the third show, Keith added, "The response to these shows has got me all fired up, We're gonna do one last show on in Vegas. This will be the only show we add on this Las Vegas run. I’m fired up for these three shows and clearly you are, too."
The initial two shows were announced just 10 days ago, with Keith saying “y’all been waiting a long time to hear this, I’ve been waiting a long time to do this. I’m back, come see me. You’ll have the best time, I will too. We’ll never forget it. Can’t wait to see you there. Let’s go.”
For the past few months, Keith has been making public appearances with hometown shows and the recent live-television performance on the People’s Choice Country Awards, signaling his return to touring after an 18-month break to focus on his health.
On Sept. 28, the Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee was honored for his decades-long career as being a pioneer in country music and one of the most influential artists of all time, as the PCCA's Country Icon. The groundbreaking musician, humanitarian, and entrepreneur gave a powerful and emotional performance of his song, “Don’t Let The Old Man In," on the live telecast of the awards, which boosted the song and music video into the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Country Songs and Videos charts and Top 3 in the all-genre charts. The following week the single claimed the No.1 spot on Billboard’s Country Digital Song Sales chart and Top 3 on the all-genre chart.
Over this summer’s Independence Day holiday weekend, Keith surprised Oklahomans with two pop-up concerts, where he performed for hours at the historic Hollywood Corners roadhouse in Norman. "This was supposed to be a secret," Keith said to the bigger than expected crowd, as noted by a fan interviewed by The Oklahoman. The fan added, "He seemed taken aback that that many people were there." Just weeks prior to that, he hosted his annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic, which raised a record $1.8 million for the families of children battling critical illness in the Oklahoma City area.
On November 17, he will release the album 100% Songwriter, a selection of 13 of many of his most iconic solo-written songs collected in one package. Arguably one of the most successful self-directed recording artists of any era, Keith has had many hits with a wide array of co-writers and a handful from outside writers. Perhaps most impressive is how many of his most iconic songs he wrote by himself, which puts him in league with performing songwriters including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton.
