Garth Brooks Announces Two Nights of Full Band Shows in Las Vegas

After more than four years of sold out one-man shows inside the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas and the Great American Country special, Garth Brooks: Blame It All On My Roots – 5 Decades of Influences, Garth Brooks has announced he’ll do two nights of full band shows, also at Wynn Las Vegas. Fans can see “Garth Brooks: The Man, His Band and His Music,” on Jan. 3 and 4, 2014 at 7 and 10:30 p.m.

“I’ve been itching for the chance to bring my band to Vegas to play this room,” said Garth. “I can’t wait. Steve Wynn told me I could use the theater anytime. I asked him when I could start and his response was, ‘How about New Year’s Eve?’”

While Garth’s critically acclaimed one-man shows at Wynn Las Vegas focused on the musical influences that he credits for his own sound and becoming the No. 1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, the New Year’s Eve weekend shows will consist of the country music legend’s own repertoire of chart-topping songs accompanied by his full band.

If you missed the Great American Country special, Garth Brooks: Blame It All On My Roots – 5 Decades of Influences, or just want to see it again, tune in Saturday, December 14 at 8/7c! See a sneak peek and additional airtimes >>

Garth Brooks to Perform Live Concert Special Friday November 29

Garth Brooks will perform a rare live broadcast concert special, Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas, from the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas, Friday, November 29 (9-11 p.m. LIVE ET/delayed PT) on CBS. This television concert will feature Garth’s final performance of his critically-acclaimed, one man show at the Wynn Las Vegas, which has played to sold-out audiences for the past three years.

Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas will feature him in a very intimate setting, playing his guitar as he takes the audience through the musical journey that led him to become the No. 1 selling solo artist in U.S. history. He will share his experiences listening to different musicians throughout his life, starting with the music of Merle Haggard and George Jones. Then, other musicians who influenced him like Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, Otis Redding, Bob Seger, George Strait and many, many, more. Throughout the show, Garth will perform some of their classic songs and show you how they influenced his greatest hits.

“Blame it all on my roots,” said Garth. “This is the soundtrack of my life. Growing up the last of six kids, music was the life blood of our family and as you can imagine, mom, dad, and each kid had his or her own favorite stuff and it all funneled down to me.”

“We’re thrilled whenever we get the opportunity to create a television event with an amazing live performer, and there is no one better than Garth Brooks,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials & Events. “Garth will give the audience a rare opportunity to not only hear his classic hits, but also the music that became the soundtrack of his life and how those influences from the country, rock and pop worlds set him on the road to become the biggest selling solo artist in history.”

In 2009, Garth announced that he was out of retirement and entered a multi-year “relationship” with Las Vegas resort developer Steve Wynn for performances at his Encore Theatre at the Wynn Las Vegas. The show has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “genius,” by EW.com as an “absolute revelation,” and Oprah Winfrey deemed it the “hottest ticket.”

Garth’s illustrious career includes selling in excess of 128 million albums, being certified by the RIAA in 2001 as the No. 1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, The International Songwriters Hall of Fame and winning two Grammy Awards, 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 10 People’s Choice Awards and 24 Billboard Music Awards, among many others.

Garth retired from entertainment in 2001 to raise his children. In 2008, he was invited by President Obama to perform at his Inaugural Celebration at Lincoln Memorial. Later that year, the Governor of California invited Garth to perform benefit concerts to help the State. Garth performed five concerts in two days, one of which was televised for CBS, to raise donations to prevent fire catastrophes.

In December 2010, Garth finished an astonishing nine sold out concerts in six days to raise money for the flood relief efforts in Tennessee. ABC World News Tonight declared Garth “The Person of the Week.” In January 2012, he was named the best-selling artist of the last two decades by Billboard, Nielson and Soundscan, with a whopping 68.5 million sales.
