Garth Brooks’ Vegas run is over.
After three years of performing in Las Vegas, the country music superstar will be concluding his tenure in Sin City after performing a handful of concerts. Garth Brooks’ Vegas time will end after six more dates this fall at Wynn Las Vegas, the last of which coming November 16-17, The Associated Press reported.
Garth Brooks came to Vegas in 2009, coming out of retirement to take the job.
The 50-year-old Brooks said he enjoyed the shows and called Steve Wynn the best boss he’s ever had.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Wynn,” Brooks said in a statement released by the hotel. “(Steve) Wynn told me that the Wynn audiences were some of the best in the world and he was right. As for Steve Wynn, he is one of the smartest guys I have ever had the pleasure of talking to or listening to. He does everything top notch and is the easiest and best boss I have ever worked for. … I just love him!”
It could help that Wynn pulled out all the stops to get Brooks to agree to the Vegas job. To help close the deal the wealthy casino owner offered Brooks his own private jet, USA Today reported.
The agreement between Brooks and Wynn was described as open-ended, but the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that it was originally supposed to last for five years.
Before Garth Brooks’ Vegas tenure ends he has one more honor to receive. He will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville on October 21.
