When Tim McGraw hits the stage at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open stage in Endicott next Friday, he will be performing for long-time fans as well as new fans from the Southern Tier and around the country.   Some of these faithful fans and new fans may even consider flying to Vegas in the months ahead.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, along with The Venetian has announced an encore series of shows, kicking off Friday, October 25 and playing on select weekends through April of next year.

In a statement, Faith says scheduling challenges and and family commitments have made it hard for her and Tim to perform together in recent years, but "The Venetian really rolled out the red carpet and made the whole experience so easy for us."  Adds Tim, "We made the most out of our short time in Vegas..but it seemed like it was over just as we were getting good and warmed up.  The reaction was impossible to ignore, so it was a total no-brainer to add more shows when the Venetian asked us.   It's been an ideal way for us to be able to perform together."
