Miranda Lambert said it’s “bittersweet” to wrap up her Las Vegas residency, Velvet Rodeo, next month. The powerhouse singer-songwriter posted a video from a previous performance on her social media pages on Monday afternoon (February 26), reflecting on her rendition of “Bluebird” from her 2019 album, Wildcard.

“It’s bittersweet that we’re less than a month away from my FINAL Vegas residency shows. Y’all have made these so fun!” Lambert wrote in her caption on Instagram. “If you haven’t seen the show yet, come on out in March 🎲🎰💙”

Velvet Rodeo opened in September 2022. Since then, Lambert has shared glimpses of her “one-of-a-kind” show, which features her career-spanning hits throughout the set list. She announced in December that she would perform nine final Velvet Rodeo shows this year. Lambert will return to the Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood stage on March 20, her website shows, with her final residency performance slated for April 6.

Velvet Rodeo’s name stems from a lyric in Lambert’s Palomino anthem, “Actin’ Up.” The Texas-born singer-songwriter — who recently released a collaboration with Enrique Iglesias — shared with host Amy Brown during her exclusive iHeartCountry Album Release show that she’s “built a career on being feminine and still keeping a bada** edge, and I think that’s important and I felt like Velvet Rodeo would encompass that.” She added later: “(Velvet Rodeo) felt like my catalog as a whole, and it’s a line in the new song and it just felt very Vegas to me. …(the venue) felt like a big honky tonk, and that’s really my vibe.”
