Before country music star Garth Brooks performs for a crowd of tens of thousands tonight at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, we wanted to look back at some of the singer’s history in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
From 2009 to 2014, Mr. Brooks had a residency at Wynn Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip. During that timeframe, he performed close to 200 concerts. Before he began his residency in 2009, the country star was on a multiyear break from performing. After receiving an offer from the Wynn, Mr. Brooks decided to end his time off from live concerts.
On November 29, 2013, CBS broadcast the final concert live at Wynn Las Vegas. The special was called Garth Brooks: Live from Las Vegas. It was seen by over nine million people.
If you are heading to the concert tonight at Allegiant Stadium, stay hydrated. Temperatures are expected to be well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit today.
