Garth Brooks is making his official performance comeback. The country superstar teamed up with Las Vegas developer Steve Wynn Thursday October 15th to announce a five-year run at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas. The show is being described as a walk through Brooks' musical journey, and are slated to feature solo acoustic performances in an intimate setting. But the singer admitted that his wife Trisha Yearwood would most likely make many guest appearances. Brooks also said he'd be welcoming friends to join him for shows, and suggested that some dates might feature him with his band. He emphasized that his goal was to make each show special, and promised that no two performances would be the same. Brooks, who retired from showbusiness in 2001 to dedicate himself to his now-teenage daughters, added that his children are still his top priority. He noted that he signed on with Wynn with his family's blessing.
Earlier that morning, Brooks appeared on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville where he announced that he was coming out of retirement. At the same time, he said that he didn't see a new album or a tour coming for five years.
Brooks will be playing 15 weekends a year at the Encore, which includes one show on Fridays, two on Saturdays, and one on Sundays. He'll begin his Vegas run on December 11th. Tickets for the first five weeks go on sale October 24th.
