This has been known for awhile but not sure it has been posted here. Mixed emotions as I believe the late Danny Gans was the most talented Entertainer (who was so low key) that most people outside of LV do not have any idea who he was. That said, he was LV'S Entertainer of the Year 11 or 12 times. A hard act for even Garth to follow!!

"Well, NASA may be bombing the moon and our president receiving Nobel Peace Prizes, but the biggest news I've heard in the past few days is that Garth Brooks is probably coming out of his all-too-lengthy retirement.

And not just half-heartedly coming out of it--after all, he did deliver a handful of shows in 2007, and he has been seen in public playing a few one-off special events (and we mean really special--our aforementioned president's inauguration festivities as an example). Nope, this is the real deal.

The scoop? The biggest-selling solo artist of all time, all genres, is set to headline a series of dates at the Encore/Wynn casino and resort in Las Vegas.

Now, this is something that's been forecasted and hinted at for a few months now, with snoopy folks spotting dinner meetings between Garth and Vegas mogul Steve Wynn this summer. Garth's reps shot down the rumors as they popped up, but it looks like it's finally going to happen.

Local Vegas news outlets are reporting it's a done deal--saying that Garth will take up residency in the theater that was to have been the permanent home of the late Danny Gans. And that there will be a press conference this Thursday to confirm the new headlining act at the Wynn.

Garth's own official website is sporting a portentous banner reading "SOMETHING EXCITING IS COMING...Thursday, October 15," with instructions to "watch live" on the site that day.

So, it's all adding up. I'm actually feeling hot and cold with excitement over this report. Back in the summer of 2007, I attended a press junket in which Garth discussed his music and career to an intimate audience--accompanying himself here and there on an acoustic guitar--and at the risk of sounding cliche, I had shivers running up and down my spine listening to him.

The man is simply, purely, gifted.

We'll keep you posted on Thursday, of course, but my suggestion is to start saving money for your Vegas trip now......"

Am staying at Encore in a week or two and noticed that "Garth" is SOLD OUT already according to the website. Being a Brit I've no idea who he is, but he is clearly popular. :)

I didn't think he was that Popular any more. Perhaps he is to the much older generation or just people in to country music. He wasn't even scoring any popularity points when he was on the "apprentice" about 9 months ago. He was terrible and of all people, Joan Rivers Won! LOL ok sorry that was off the subject . In my opinion your not missing much by not being able to see Garth in Concert. Now, if it was Pink Floyd I couldn't get tickets for, that would be upsetting!

LOL I can't stop laughing at my mistake thanks for pointing this out to me. That is how much I am not in to country music. Clint Black was so boring on the apprentice it was easy to forget him.

:eek: who doesnt like garth brooks?, I mean I LOVE my heavy metal but he is the ONLY country singer I like listening to.
The below song is my all time fav for him, the thunder rolls.

Hey hey hey, my girlfriend is a coutnry bumkin who loves Garth Brooks- wooo hooo looks like the Vegas trip is back on the cards now :p

Three thirty in the morning,
Not a soul in sight,
The city's lookin' like a ghost town
On a moonless summer night.
Raindrops on the windshield,
There's a storm moving in.
He's headin' back from somewhere
That he never should have been.
And the thunder rolls.
And the thunder rolls.

Every light is burnin'
In a house across town.
She's pacin' by the telephone
In her faded flannel gown.
Askin' for a miracle,
Hopin' she's not right,
Prayin' it's the weather
That's kept him out all night.
And the thunder rolls.
And the thunder rolls.

(Chorus)
The thunder rolls
And the lightnin' strikes.
Another love grows cold
On a sleepless night,
As the storm blows on
Out of control
Deep in her heart
The thunder rolls.

Your right Annie Duke raised the most and was clearly the winner in my opinion.I have no idea why Joan Rivers won.
