GARTH Brooks fans can see the country sensation perform in Las Vegas next year – but his gigs will clash with U2’s Sin City run.
The two mega stars are suspending their tours next year in favor of residencies in Nevada.
According to industry sources U2 will launch a “multi-show residency at the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas” from September, while the Friends in Low Places hitmaker Garth will also travel to the desert to meet fans.
bono and co are planning 12 shows, every Friday and Saturday evening over a few months, starting September 29/30, 2023.
But venue owners say the gigs will be unlike any of U2’s previous gigs.
They will be the first act to perform in the sphere-shaped music and entertainment arena Vegas strip that offers 160,000 square feet of indoor immersive viewing, spatialized sound, full 4D effects.
The insider said, “It will be a multi-sensory experience of sound and light inside the largest spherical structure ever created on earth.
“Fans will enjoy the next generation of live entertainment.”
It can accommodate up to 20,000 standing punters or 17,500 seats on site with 23 luxury VIP suites.
Meanwhile, Garth wants to ditch his big stage show used in Croke Park in favor of a one-man-show format, when his own residence at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace opens next spring.
Revealing his intention to attract fans to see him in Sin City, Garth added: What would be fun would be to kind of do a residency in Vegas.
Garth said he wants his wife Trisha Yearwood to join him on stage every night on his Vegas run.
One of the highlights of the singer’s five-night run at Croke Park was when Trisha joined her husband on stage for a cover of Shallow – originally performed by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born .
Speaking to Brendan O’Connor on TEN Radio One last week, Bono declined to say anything about U2’s Las Vegas dates.
He said, “I can’t advertise Vegas, you should shoot me!” But if it does, I can promise you it won’t be like anything you’ve seen in Las Vegas or anywhere else, ever. There isn’t a place big enough yet. For us to go there, it has to be something no one has ever done before.
But country star Garth Brooks, who after his successful run at Croke Park is set to announce his own Vegas residency on Monday morning while appearing on American television’s Good Morning America, is stealing a march on Bono.
The singer told fans on a recent US show, “I’m thinking about a residency after my stadium tour is over.”
