Garth Comes Back

Garth Brooks left the Encore Theatre at Wynn stage in Las Vegas Feb. 12 after playing a two-hour set, and sat down to dinner backstage.

His meal was interrupted when a stagehand came up to him and said the audience was still in the theatre 15 minutes after Brooks said his goodbyes.

Thinking the employee was joking, Brooks went to see for himself. Sure enough, the audience was still standing, hoping he would return.

Brooks obliged by grabbing his guitar and playing an additional 45 minutes. “I’ve never seen anything like it in my career,” Brooks said.
