"I'm very excited to be coming back out and playing for the fans out there. I'm looking forward to it so much, singing those songs that I love so much and haven't done in a while. I'm really, really looking forward to being able to play in the new Las Vegas Arena. I hear it's just unbelievable. I can't wait."
