Grammy Award winner and country icon, Garth Brooks, took center stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace for his new and current residency Garth Brooks/Plus ONE.

Garth is no stranger to sin city and what it has to offer. In 2014,  he ended his “Garth at Wynn” five-year residency at the Encore Theater inside Wynn Las Vegas. He has since been on a world tour and a stadium tour showcasing new music, talent and life updates with his fans across the world. In those eight years, Garth released multiple albums including, ‘Man Against Machine’, ‘Christmas Together with Trisha Yearwood’, ‘Gunslinger’ and ‘Fun’.

Caesars Palace held a private Garth Brooks media conference, on May 18, to get the word out about his current project. We found out that the new show is phone-free meaning no cellphones allowed. “This show is a one-of-a-kind thing that kind of evolves” says, Garth. Sorry influencers, no selfies for you. This restriction isn’t new to Garth fans as this was the protocol during his Wynn shows.

Garth went on to talk about the intimacy of The Colosseum at Caesars Palace saying, “but here you get to hold each others hands, that’s nice.” The venue is meant to absorb the sound which is a big difference compared to his larger 60,000 – 70,000 seated shows. After countless of performances here, Garth learned that, “the people who fill those seats know their music inside and out.” Garth wants to see how far his music will go and Vegas is a perfect vessel for that.

The popularity and demand for Garth just proves that country is still very much alive and well. He sold-out all 32 shows for Garth Brooks/Plus ONE residency and since released more show dates for 2024. Each of his shows are individual and unique. Night one featured songs like, “Friends in Low Places”, “Shameless”, “Two Pina coladas”, “The Dance” and “The Thunder Rolls.” Garth mentioned in the press conference that unique things would happen during his upcoming shows and night one was no exception. Garth shouted out a military couple in the audience paying respects to our military and their family members.  Tears and laughter spread across the room making it a memory to remember.

Grammy award winning country artist and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, graced the stage near the end of the show for a performance of, “She’s In Love With The Boy.” Though she may have slipped the lyrics she redeemed herself with comedy and grace. Garth and Trisha covered, “Shallow” which sent the audience into a harmonious frenzy.

Would we recommend the show? Yes, 1,000 percent. Tag us in your photos if you attend a show @CoyoteCountryLV. We will show you some extra love.
