Garth Brooks To Wind Down His Las Vegas Residency Next Month
Just Six Dates Left To Catch Brooks Performing At The Wynn Las Vegas
After a successful, three-year run of performances at the Wynn Las Vegas, Garth Brooks has opted not to renew his contract with the casino and will be performing his last two shows there on Nov. 17. The one-man acoustic show has been running at the venue on select weekends since December 2009, with Brooks flying back and forth from his Oklahoma home for the performances.
Next summer, Brooks plans to film the stripped-down show he perfected at the Wynn for a possible network special.
“I have always thought of Garth Brooks as a brother and this will always be a home for him,” says Wynn Resorts Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn in a press release. “Personally, I’ve never stopped being amazed at Garth’s talent, nor have I ever stopped admiring the wonderful balance that he has maintained as a father and a superstar. He is, to me, the rarest of all combinations: incredibly gifted and a man of great character.”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Wynn,” says Brooks in the same release. “Mr. Wynn told me that the Wynn audiences were some of the best in the world and he was right. As for Steve Wynn, he is one of the smartest guys I have ever had the pleasure of talking to or listening to. He does everything top notch and is the easiest and best boss I have ever worked for. I just love him!”
Tickets for the remaining shows, scheduled for Oct. 5, 6, 26, and 27, and Nov. 16 and 17, are available at Ticketmaster for $225 plus tax and service charge. Brooks performs two shows each night, at 7:30 and 10:30.
I got to see him in Sacramento a few years back - Best Concert EVER! In 2010, we saw his 1-man show @ Wynn - Second-Best Concert Ever!
Fabulous performer. Wonderful character. Great example of one who can be a performer & still have class.
Thank You, Mr. Brooks.
