Garth Streams Second Part Of Announcement Live From Las Vegas
This afternoon at 5p (ET), GARTH announced live from the WYNN THEATRE in LAS VEGAS that he will begin a 15-week run of shows there beginning the weekend of DECEMBER 11th. He will perform one show on FRIDAY, two on SATURDAY and one on SUNDAY. He will be able to fly back to OKLAHOMA on SUNDAY evening to spend time with his family.
GARTH said: "STEVE (WYNN) started talking about bringing this show, just GARTH and a guitar, to the people. He said it was something he thought people should hear. That was sweet, but I told him he couldn't afford me. I was wrong!"
STEVE agreed to accomodate to GARTH's schedule with his family. GARTH added: "My life is not going to change in the next five years, except I will get to play some music. We've agreed to relationship together for the next five years. I'm going to play a one-man show, just me and a guitar. This is a chance for me to slowly wade into things and see what people like and don't like."
Tickets for the first five weekends of shows will go on sale SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24th for $143 each (include service charge and tax). For complete coverage live from VEGAS, visit www.garthbrooks.com.
