Country music superstar Garth Brooks will appear in a rebroadcast of Garth Brooks: Live From Las Vegas, Friday, December 27th from 9 – 11:01 pm ET/PT on the CBS Television Network. This television concert event will feature Brooks’ 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. The show was originally broadcast on Black Friday, November 29th.
Garth Brooks: Live From Las Vegas features Brooks in a very intimate setting, playing his guitar as he takes the audience through the musical journey that led him to become the number one 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, Brooks will perform some of their classic songs and show you how they influenced his greatest hits.
Brooks is set to take the Encore Theatre stage again with his full band in a couple of weeks with four performances over two nights, January 3rd and 4th. Tickets to the exclusive shows sold out within minutes and are a pre-curser to what’s ahead for the iconic country singer.
Brooks confirmed to ABC’s Robin Roberts that he will be launching a three year world tour with wife Trisha Yearwood starting in Fall 2014, when his youngest daughter starts college. Little information is known about the tour, but Brooks has stated “the biggest thing we’ve ever done” will happen beforehand. He revealed during radio interviews last week that specifics regarding this announcement will be revealed in six to eight weeks.
The tour will be Brooks’ first since his self-imposed retirement in 2001.
