One day. That’s how long it took for all 27 shows in Garth Brooks’ 2023 Vegas residency to sell out. On Facebook, Garth said, “What an unbelievable day this was for us. Every show in ’23 is pretty much…done. A whole year in one day. That’s nice!’ It wasn’t all good news though, with as many as 60k registered fans not able to get tickets. “How do you take care of those people who weren’t taken care of?” Brooks asked, and his answer is simple. He says he’s already started talking with Caesars Palace about extending his residency into 2024. He says that those fans who didn’t get in would be “first in line for ’24…if ’24 happens.”
