'Derek Hough No Limit' is About to Hit Las Vegas
Updated: Feb 4, 2020
If there is anyone who would shake up the dance industry, it's Derek Hough. On Monday, he announced a 2020 Las Vegas residency on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan. Derek Hough No Limit will begin in June and run through November at the Flamingo Las Vegas.
Fans had guessed a Vegas residency was in the cards when Hough hinted in an Instagram post with a slot machine emoji. The big move is the perfect next step for the artist, who continually writes a new blueprint for himself in the entertainment industry.

If you take a look at what Hough has done, from taking his tour experience with sister Julianne Hough, and expanding that to his solo tour last year, a Vegas residency makes a lot of sense. It's also a bold move for casino owners to gamble on a dance talent, but the success of Derek Hough Live! Tour already proved to be a winning formula.
The other element to consider is the fact that it will employ creative directors, choreographers and dancers for months. In an ever-changing entertainment landscape, it's nice to see that a good old-fashioned variety show still sells tickets, thanks to Hough.

Hough will have a busy year since World of Dance begins taping Feb. 21 with an expected May debut. No Limit will then occupy the rest of his summer through the late fall.
Here are the latest details on the Las Vegas residency. Dance Dish will update this article as more information becomes available.

What to Expect:
Hough has promised live music again, just like his 2019 tour. He also wants to honor the history of Las Vegas with tributes to performers like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. He's also going to continue with an array of dance styles. It's also natural that some of the dancers and choreographers who have worked with him before will be a part of the show.
