Country music legend, Toby Keith, performed what would be his last show on December 14th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

From December 12-14, 2023, Toby Keith performed three sold-out shows at the Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas. These shows marked a triumphant return to the stage for the country star after he was diagnosed and had been battling stomach cancer since late 2021. Little did fans know, these shows would be the last live performances of his lifetime.

Toby took to social media after the shows to commemorate the weekend saying:

“3 sold out shows in Vegas was a damn good way to end the year.”

Toby Keith’s mother joined him on stage during one of his final performances.

During the show on December 12th, Toby’s mother, Carolyn Joan Covel, stepped out on stage to greet the crowd during the fan-favorite song “Red Solo Cup.” While on stage, the singer-songwriter joked around with his mom and encouraged her to playfully tell the crowd to “go to hell.” She obliged, and the crowd got a good laugh out of the exchange.

What was a lighthearted and spontaneous moment will surely become a cherished memory for the family.

Toby Keith performed “Don’t Let The Old Man In” during his final performance in Las Vegas.

Toby Keith’s setlist for his weekend of shows in Las Vegas was filled with his hit songs from the last three decades including “Beer For My Horses,” “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” and more. During the momentous show, Toby took a break from his bold and high energy songs to perform a rendition of his latest hit, “Don’t Let The Old Man In.”

The ballad was inspired by a casual conversation with Clint Eastwood, and became the motivational soundtrack to Toby’s fight against cancer. Toby, who had become visibly frail since undergoing treatment, sat in a chair and sang the poignant lyrics out over the crowd. The emotion in the room was palpable.
