Garth Brooks Returns to Las Vegas

Garth Brooks returns to Las Vegas this June and July for limited engagements. The Grammy award-winning country singer will perform at the Wynn Hotel inside the Encore Theatre. The theater boasts intimate seating, with all seats very close to the singer. While watching the show you will not see fancy lights, glamor, or pretentiousness, just up close action from the man himself.

AOL has called the Garth Brooks show, “Stunning.” The LA Times has called it, “Genius.” Variety magazine has called his performance, “Passionate.” CMT calls Brooks, “The pivotal figure in the history of country music, no matter how much some country purists would like to deny it.” USA Today calls his latest show, “The antithesis of Vegas glitz.”

Brooks officially retired from singing in 2000 to spend more time with his family. However he never officially left the music spotlight. The artist has released a total of 19 records, including  77 singles in his illustrious music career. Since partially coming back to performing live in 2005, he has performed several times and released two compilation albums of his biggest hit songs.  The Recording Industry Association has proclaimed Brooks to be the best-selling solo artist of the 20th century in the U.S. He’s been awarded with 16 American Music Awards, 2 Grammy Awards, 24 Billboard Music Awards, 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards, 10 People’s Choice Awards,  and 5 World Music Awards.

Attendees of the show can expect to hear many of his best fits including, “if tomorrow never comes,” “the river,” “we shall be free,” and “friends in low places.”  Garth’s shows in the past have been engaging and funny, and with a lot of interaction with the audience. The celebrity has been known to ask the audience for requests, as well as providing history into the meaning and back story of his songs.

Elton John In Las Vegas

Elton John returns to Las Vegas to perform at Caesars Palace with a brand-new show. He plans on beginning a three year performance at the Colosseum theater called The Million Dollar Piano. Elton’s previous show the Red Piano was a huge hit spanning over five-years and 241 shows. For his newest performance he’s starting with the very limited amount of performance engagements.

Elton will be accompanied by his band with special appearances by percussionist Ray Cooper. Currently the members of the band are Davey Johnstone on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards Bob Birch playing bass, and Nigel Olsson on drums.

When asked about the show Elton John said, “Caesars Palace is just a perfect, idyllic place to play, and the show will be a gargantuan feast of music and imagery.” The show is called the million Dollar piano because Elton will be playing on his famous Yamaha piano he has been using for the past four years.

We’re not sure which songs will appear in the new show. However I think it’s safe to say you’ll hear some of his favorites and most popular hits such as, Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer, Candle in the Wind, Your Song, rocket Man, Crocodile Rock, Island girl, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.

Elton John is a multiple Grammy award-winning legend and one of the most successful singer songwriters of all time. He’s been performing music ever since 1961 when his first band was formed which was called Bluesology. Recently in 2010, Elton toured with Ray Cooper, Billy Joel, and his band. In 2010 he also produced the Broadway musical, Next Fall and came out with a new studio album titled, The Union.

Tickets for Elton John’s upcoming show can be purchased at the box office of the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. You can also buy tickets for Elton John’s Million Dollar Piano show By Clicking Here to Purchase.
