“Country Superstars” to Close at Hooters Las Vegas

In an all-too-familiar refrain, it’s been confirmed the “Country Superstars” tribute show at Hooters Las Vegas is closing.

The show will have its final performance at Hooters on Nov. 22, 2016. According to the show’s Web site, it opened at Hooters on Sep. 1, 2016.

Country Superstars

As country folks say, “If you can’t run with the big dogs, stay under the porch.” Whatever that might mean.

Entertainment writer Mike Weatherford of the Las Vegas Review-Journal was the first to catch wind of the untimely demise of “Country Superstars,” and we confirmed the closure with a Hooters rep.

“Country Superstars” promoted itself as a 70-minute show with tributes to some of the biggest names in country music, including Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw and Willie Nelson.

It originally opened on June 21, 2007 at Fitzgerald’s (now The D Las Vegas). Then it ran at Whiskey Pete’s in Primm, Golden Nugget, Planet Hollywood (V Theater) and Bally’s, before its short time at Hooters.

The departure of “Country Superstars” at Hooters brings our tally of Las Vegas shows that have closed in 2016 to a whopping 26.

    This show ran a pretty decent amount of time at Golden Nugget (at the Gordie Brown theater). It opened there in 2010, and tickets were only $25. I’d see the cast outside the auditorium, posing for pics as we were entering for Gordie. They looked pretty convincing, but I never actually saw a performance.


    RIP, another show I never even knew existed.

    I go to Vegas 4 times a year and probably follow Vegas news more closely than I do my own city’s; If I’ve never heard of half of the 47,003 shows that closed this year, how can the resorts expect the casual Vegas tourist to know about them?

    Frankly I feel like the culling of all these shows this year is long overdue and clears the plate for (hopefully) fewer, but better offerings.
