He has yet to announced the specific new dates, but tickets for his 2023 shows sold out during the first day of presale, which he previously announced on his Inside Studio G Facebook show a couple weeks back:
“What a day… what an unbelievable day this was for us.
So, every show in ’23 is up, every show in ’23 is pretty much…done. It’s good, really good, a whole year in one day… that’s nice!”
There were tickets for 27 shows on sale, and while they didn’t have quite the Taylor Swift-level demand, he said that around 60,000 people were unable to purchase tickets via Ticketmaster:
“They also had more people than they could take care of, which was very sweet for us. So how do you take care of those people who weren’t taken care of? The last two hours we’ve been talking to Caesars, talking to them about the possibility of extending this residency.”
The shows will take place at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and he previously hinted that they’d likely extend the dates into the following year.
The new shows will announce in May of 2023 around the opening of the residency, and Garth says he’s blown away by the support around the residency:
“My whole life I have heard the saying, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day.’ Well, thanks to God and the people, ours was. Truly grateful and unapologetically excited.”
After embarking on a stadium tour for a lot of this year, and the past few years prior, Garth wanted to try something different and “shrink it back down” from headlining massive stadiums to tens of thousands of fans.
When he made the announcement about this new project on GMA a couple weeks ago, he explained that they’ll take a bit of a different approach with these new shows…
He’s calling it a one man show, where he’ll have his band members sitting in the audience at the ready for whenever he wants to pull them up on stage:
“We’re calling it the ‘Plus ONE’ because we’re going to try something we’ve never tried before. The band is coming but It’s the one-man show.
They’re going to sit in the audience, so any time you want a fiddle just to come up and join you, any time you just want percussion and background to come up and sing or it’s just you — or just bring the whole band up to do ‘Friends in Low Places’ — this should be stupid.”
Garth had a multi-year residency in Vegas at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas from 2009 2013.
And it sounds like if you were lucky enough to score a ticket for this new residency, it will certainly be a unique show to remember.
