LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Garth Brooks can’t get enough of his Las Vegas audiences — and they can’t get enough of him.
The country music icon has announced new concert dates that will extend his stay at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas through select dates beginning March through August.
The newly announced dates are a result of the mutual adoration society shared between Brooks and his fans.
After two hours of playing on stage at Encore on Feb. 12, the lights came up, the show was over and Brooks went backstage to have dinner. Fifteen minutes went by when a stagehand came back and told Brooks he wouldn’t believe it, but the audience was still there, standing like they were when he left the stage.
Thinking the stagehand was joking, Brooks went out to see for himself and it was no joke, the entire crowd was still standing. Wanting to return their adoration, Brooks grabbed his guitar, walked back on stage and played for another 45 minutes. Afterward Brooks said, “I’ve never seen anything like it in my career.”
Tickets for the next series of concerts will go on sale this Saturday, Feb. 27. at 8 a.m. Pacific time. Tickets are $125 plus service charge and tax. Total price is $143.
Newly announced concert dates are March 26-28, April 9-11, June 25-27, July 16-18 and August 6-8. Tickets may be purchased by calling 702-770-1000 or online at www.wynnlasvegas.com/boxoffice.
Specific measures have been put in place in an effort to ensure that tickets for concerts are accessible to fans at face value and through authorized sales channels exclusively. Fans are discouraged from purchasing tickets through unauthorized channels as such tickets will be cancelled.
