GARTH BROOKS HITS A GRAND SLAM WITH OPENING WEEKEND OF LAS VEGAS RESIDENCY AT THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE
Brooks Powers Through 2 ½-Hour Sets, Mesmerizing the Crowd
By all accounts, Garth Brooks hit a grand slam with the opening weekend shows of his Las Vegas Residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Brooks loaded the bases with his biggest hits, fan favorite album tracks, and covers of artists he loves, then hit it out of the park by weaving solo, acoustic performances with the Plus ONE “muscle” of his full band and duets with Trisha Yearwood. He brought it home as the crowd erupted into spontaneous sing-alongs throughout his 2 ½-hour sets.
John Katsilometes of the Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote, “Brooks’ ‘Plus One’ vision is to bring out any special guests to join his party. It might be his wife, could be a fellow musician. But what we saw Thursday is Brooks’ plus-one is also you, me, all of us, joining his sing-along of a lifetime.”
According to Billy Dukes of Taste of Country, “Garth Garth'd. His rare gift is an ability to live in a moment more completely than any other performer.”
And what was Garth’s favorite part of the weekend? “I’d have to say it was how the audience responded to each other,” he shared in this week’s Inside Studio G, citing the crowd’s ovation for a soldier who had recently returned from deployment and their loving support for a cancer survivor who requested a song.
