Garth Brooks is bringing his Vegas live show right into your living room with a rare live broadcast concert special, Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas from the Encore Theater at The Wynn, Las Vegas. The two-hour special will air Friday, November 29 at 9:00 ET/ delayed PT on the CBS Television Network, and will feature Brooks’ final performance of his critically acclaimed one man show at The Wynn, which has played to sold out crowds for the past three years.
Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas will feature Brooks in an intimate setting, playing guitar while sharing songs and stories with his fans. He will discuss the many legendary artists who influenced him – including everyone from Merle Haggard and George Jones to James Taylor and Simon & Garfunkel – and will perform some of their classic songs.
“Blame it all on my roots,” said Brooks, “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.”
Garth Brooks retired from recording and performing in 2001, but returned to the stage in 2009 to begin his multi-year “relationship” with Las Vegas resort developer Steve Wynn for performances at his Encore Theatre at the Wynn Las Vegas.
Brooks is the top selling artist of the Nielson SoundScan era, having sold over 128 million albums. He has won two Grammy Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards, 18 Academy Of Country Music Awards, 10 People’s Choice Awards, and 24 Billboard Music Awards. He is a member of the Country Music Hall Of Fame and the International Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
