More Vegas Shows Set For Garth

Posted on 10 November 2010 by editor



LAS VEGAS, Nov. 9, 2010 — Garth Brooks has performed to sold-out crowds and rave reviews at the intimate Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas since December 2009. Tickets for the next series of highly anticipated concerts will go on sale on Saturday, November 13 at 10 a.m. PT. Tickets are $225 plus service charge and tax ($253 total).

Steve Wynn has the following statement regarding the increase in ticket prices:

“My decision to raise the ticket price was a simple one. The demand for Garth was so overwhelming that it caught us by surprise. We could fill a theater many times the size of this, twice a night.

The most important thing for our company is to give people value for their entertainment dollar. The contact with Garth Brooks in the Encore Theater is the equivalent of being in his living room. When the greatest live performer of our time appears in such an intimate theater, the seats should be priced at least competitively with other great Las Vegas entertainers. In terms of value, I believe that Garth Brooks is still under-priced and represents the greatest entertainment value in modern Las Vegas.”

“I am flattered Steve Wynn believes in me as an entertainer and my deal with him is not affected by ticket price. My only concern is the audience. Right now, the Vegas audiences are some of the best I have ever played for and I’d hate to see that change for whatever reason,” said Garth Brooks.

Concert Dates:
December 3, 4, 5
January 21, 22, 23
February 11, 12, 13
February 25, 26, 27

Concert times:
Fridays 8 p.m., Saturdays 8 p.m. & 10:30 p.m., Sundays 8 p.m.

Tickets are available exclusively at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-877-65-GARTH.

Garth Brooks Returns Concert

Posted on 04 November 2010 by editor

Premium Seats USA

Win / Wynn for Garth?

**UPDATE** As hinted below… the rumor of extra nights became reality on ticketmaster with Garth expanding his original one show to nine shows with reports of the biggest Nashville ticket sales event ever. There may be individual tickets left at tickemaster… otherwise you may tryPremium Seats USA

Garth Brooks is back for a country concert he claims will be one to add to your bucket list.

The show is a one night (although rumor has it he has a few more nights “on hold”) at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on December 17th.

With any new Garth news one has to ask WHEN will his iTunes embargo end?  Brooks and the Beatles remain the last few holdouts to disallow download music sales.  Brooks has said he’ll wait until you can make it a full album experience.  Is something about to change?  Maybe an Apple gPod loaded with his hits?

Brooks has always favored the holiday shopping season as a time to pop up and drop some sort of marketing collection but this event looks to be all about raising money for flood stricken Tennessee.   Wife and country superstar Trisha Yearwood will join the show and she hints there may be other surprise guests too.

Brooks just released the ticket info at Garthbrooks.com and the show should sell briskly when it goes to Ticketmaster on Saturday (11/7/10).

As is custom with Garth (before Wynn / Vegas shows) the tickets are priced for the working man.

Info below from GarthBrooks.com and more detail at the site.

About Garth Brooks

Certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, Garth Brooks has sold in excess of 128 million albums. He is the only solo artist in RIAA history to have six albums top the 10 million mark. His most recent release, The Ultimate Hits, has been certified five times platinum. Garth became the first artist to put out a simultaneous edition of his latest collection for a charitable cause. November 6, 2007 saw the launch of the pink edition of The Ultimate Hits, available only at the Susan G. Komen Web site. His body of work — including the groundbreaking No Fences, Ropin’ The Wind, The Hits and Double Live — propelled country music as a genre to the front pages of newspapers worldwide and the covers of magazines, to the point where Forbes declared on its cover, “Country Conquers Rock,” and featured Garth in a major music piece. According to the RIAA, Garth Brooks is the top-selling solo artist of the 20th century.

The key to his record-setting success lies within the personality and talent of Garth Brooks. It has been said that through the 1990s, Garth’s only real competition was himself. He brought daring individualism and a love of music to the table. His wide range encompasses a variety of styles which include working-class blues, honky tonk, bluegrass and arena rock. His easy-going, approachable charisma was matched only by his fearless willingness to take chances and step outside the lines. He has had an unprecedented run so far, and opened the doors for many more country artists to follow.

Garth has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow on an artist, including two Grammys, 17 American Music Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards, 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, five World Music Awards, 12 People’s Choice Awards and 36 Billboard Music Awards. He was named “Artist of the ‘90s” at the 1997 Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, received the Artist Achievement Award at the 1997 Billboard Music Awards and was named “Artist of the Decade” at the American Music Awards in 2000 and the Academy of Country Music Awards in 1999.

In the midst of one of the most successful careers in music history, Garth retired in 2001, delivered his last record for Capitol Records and moved back to Oklahoma to raise his children. While in retirement, when called upon by events greater than his own self-interest, he returned to the stage. The latest of these was when the President himself requested that Garth headline President Obama’s Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial. He performed as Barack and Michelle Obama, their girls, Joe and Jill Biden and a crowd of over 300,000 lined the mall from the Lincoln Memorial all the way to the Washington Monument. It was a moment in history when all did the “wave” to Garth’s performance of “Shout” while the President sang along. Once again, Garth was called upon by the network to perform for President Obama’s very first late night TV appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. When the Governor of California asked for Garth’s help, he responded by performing five concerts in two days, where proceeds from 83,000 tickets sold were donated to efforts to prevent fire catastrophes. Portions of the live concerts were shown as a TV special, “Garth Brooks: Live in L.A.” where viewers donated to the organization Fire Intervention Relief Effort (FIRE).

Oct. 15, 2009, Brooks announced that he was out of retirement: “I am naturally nervous, but it feels good to be out from under the low ceiling of ‘retirement’ I put on myself.” Brooks has entered a five-year “relationship” with Las Vegas resort developer, Steve Wynn.
