Tickets for Garth Brooks' next 20 performances will go on sale Saturday, Wynn Las Vegas announced today.
Beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, fans can call or visit the Wynn box office's Web site to purchase tickets. The series of dates include March 26-28, April 9-11, June 25-27, July 16-18 and August 6-8. Ticket prices will stay at $143, including taxes and fees.
Tickets for Brooks' first 20 performances sold out within hours of their release in October. Hours later, Wynn Resorts Chairman and Chief Executive Steve Wynn instituted an unusual anti-scalping procedure that angered fans and ticket brokers alike. The resort demanded the name of every concertgoer for each ticket purchased and said tickets could be picked up only on the day of the show, with photo IDs being checked at the door.
The country music star announced he would be coming out of retirement for a five-year stay at the Encore Theater in October. Brooks began his first performances in December.
