Garth Brooks will bring his massive world tour to Las Vegas next summer.
The Garth Brooks World Tour featuring Trisha Yearwood will hit the brand new Las Vegas Arena on July 2, 3 and 4.
According to a press release, Brooks plans to “create artistic components for his performances utilizing the Las Vegas Arena’s advanced production elements while taking advantage of the venue’s many entertainment spaces, highlighted by the adjacent two-acre Toshiba Plaza.”
“Vegas HAS to be different. The city, the venue and the people demand it,” Brooks explained in a statement. “With the help of the city itself, this run of shows will be a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experience.”
Tickets for Brooks’ Las Vegas tour dates will go on sale Dec. 11 at 10AM PT. A pre-sale will begin Dec. 4 at 10AM PT and will end on Dec. 10 at 10PM PT. Tickets will cost $85, with all taxes and service charges included. Fans can purchase their tickets through GarthVegas.com or by phone at 1-855-411-4849.
The special string of performances will be Brooks’ first since he wrapped up his residency at Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theater, which began in 2009. Brooks will be the second country artist ever to play the Las Vegas Arena. George Strait will perform the first run of his two-year residency at the venue in April, just days after it is scheduled to open its doors.
