LAS VEGAS, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The final performance date of Garth Brooks at Wynn Las Vegas will be Nov. 17, 2012. The show called by Las Vegas Weekly "the best thing on any Vegas stage... EVER," has been running since Dec 2009.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Wynn," said Garth Brooks. "Mr. 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!"
Hailed as the Solo Artist of the 20th Century by RIAA and currently sitting atop the sound scan era, Brooks plans to film his one-man show next summer for a possible network special sometime in the near future.
"I have always thought of Garth Brooks as a brother and this will always be a home for him," said Wynn Resorts Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn. "Personally, I've never stopped being amazed at Garth's talent, nor have I ever stopped admiring the wonderful balance that he has maintained as a father and a superstar. He is to me, the rarest of all combinations: incredibly gifted and a man of great character."

About Garth Brooks
Certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, Garth Brooks has sold in excess of 128 million albums. He has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow on an artist.
In the midst of one of the most successful careers in music history, Garth retired in 2001, delivered his last record for Capitol Records and moved back to Oklahoma to raise his children. While in retirement, when called upon by events greater than his own self-interest, he returned to the stage. The President himself requested that Garth headline President Obama's Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial. He performed as Barack and Michelle Obama, their girls, Joe and Jill Biden and a crowd of over 300,000 lined the mall from the Lincoln Memorial all the way to the Washington Monument. It was a moment in history when all did the "wave" to Garth's performance of "Shout" while the President sang along. When in 2008, the Governor of California asked for Garth's help, he responded by performing five concerts in two days, where proceeds from 83,000 tickets sold were donated to efforts to prevent fire catastrophes. Portions of the live concerts were shown as a TV special, "Garth Brooks: Live in L.A." where viewers donated to the organization F.I.R.E. In December 2010, Garth finished an astonishing 9 sold out concerts in 6 days to raise money for the flood relief efforts in Tennessee. ABC World News Tonight declared Garth The Person of the Week and the Mayor of Nashville came on stage during his last performance to announce that this was a record December for downtown Nashville merchants due to the over 145,000 who attended the concerts. On January 25, 2012, Garth Brooks was named the best selling artist of the last two decades by Billboard, Nielson and Soundscan, with a whopping 68.5 million sales.
