The legend who opened up Allegiant Stadium is making Las Vegas his home for a few shows in 2022
He may have friends in low places, but Garth Brooks isn’t bringing any of them when he comes through Las Vegas next year. The country superstar has announced “Garth Brooks: The ONE Man Show” at the Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas.
So, there is good news and there is bad news. The good news is it’s freakin’ Garth Brooks! And, it’s Garth Brooks on his birthday. Ya know, because that’s ‘what cowboys do,’ they come to Vegas on their birthday. “I look forward to celebrating my birthday early that weekend in Vegas,” said Garth Brooks in a statement released to the press. “Getting to sing and hear everyone singing is my favorite thing.” Same Garth, same.
Now time for the bad news. While it is a one man show, it is for two nights only. Wa wa wa.
Garth’s ‘Allegiance’ to Vegas
Garth has a history with Las Vegas that proves he has long had ‘two of a kind and is working on a full house.’
Most recently Garth Brooks was the first major concert that was played at our newly opened Allegiant Stadium. That was back in July and was after the show was originally postponed due to Covid. That show, you may remember, sold out quicker than it took you to read this article top to bottom.
The first time he played Vegas was for a week-long stint back in 1991 at the Desert Inn. In other words, he had a residency long before there was a residency. Though to be clear, the Grammy winner has been a headliner with shows at the Encore inside the Wynn from 2009-2014.
Earlier this summer it was suggested that Garth may actually want another go at a Las Vegas headlining gig. When he addressed it on an episode of “Inside Studio G,” Garth said, “What would be fun would be to somehow do a residency in Vegas and in Nashville, because they got great places to play here.”
Nothing against Nashville, but we are clearly in favor of all things Garth in Vegas.
A Busy Brooks
To say Garth has been a busy boy these past few months is like saying Las Vegas has a couple of slot machines. In the last month alone Brooks has sold over a half a million tickets to shows in just three cities. This spring Garth Brooks was one of five artists to receive The Kennedy Center Honor. And, further proof that he “ain’t going down til the sun comes up,” Garth is the first-ever seven-time recipient of the CMA Entertainer of the Year honor. If that isn’t enough, last month Garth released two new albums, his 12th studio album, “FUN” and live album “Triple Live Deluxe.”
