Garth Brooks Announces More Vegas Shows

Not only has the number of Garth Brooks residency shows at the Wynn Las Vegas increased, but so has the ticket price.

Last year when Brooks first announced his Vegas residency at Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theater, tickets were priced at $125 plus service charges and tax. However, today’s announcement detailing future Garth dates in Sin City lists tickets for $225, $100 over the original price.

Brooks was known for affordable tickets before the original $125 price raised eyebrows.

“My decision to raise the ticket price was a simple one,” Wynn Las Vegas owner Steve Wynn said in a statement. “The demand for Garth was so overwhelming that it caught us by surprise. We could fill a theater many times the size of this, twice a night.

“The most important thing for our company is to give people value for their entertainment dollar. The contact with Garth Brooks in the Encore Theater is the equivalent of being in his living room. When the greatest live performer of our time appears in such an intimate theater, the seats should be priced at least competitively with other great Las Vegas entertainers. In terms of value, I believe that Garth Brooks is still under-priced and represents the greatest entertainment value in modern Las Vegas.”
