Garth Brooks Talks 2023 Duets Project with Trisha Yearwood and Others
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are two of a kind working on a full album.
Brooks revealed Monday that fans could expect new music from him late in 2023. And this time, he's bringing his wife – and his friends.
"We talk about the duets record – it's comin,'" Brooks said on his weekly Facebook livestream Inside Studio G. "Maybe not with Trisha Yearwood, but…you know…the duets record that's coming is not just of The Queen. The Queen is in there, of course, because you can't do it without her. But…this is – it's been fun so far. It's going to be a blast to finish, though."
Brooks recently said 2023 would be the busiest year of his career. He's planning to open his bar on Lower Broadway in Nashville. He said his recording studio was wide open, and he planned to use it. He will launch his Las Vegas residency in May.
"2023's going to be extremely busy for us, and busy hopefully means we're having fun…because we have the most fun of anybody on the planet," Brooks said on the livestream.
His new show Garth Brooks/Plus ONE will be in residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace starting in May. Every show of Brooks' 2023 residency sold out in the Ticketmaster Verified Fan presale.
"What an unbelievable day this was for us," Brooks said, reflecting on the sellouts. "Every show in '23 is pretty much…done. A whole year in one day. That's nice!"
Tickets to 27 shows were up for grabs. Fans had to register for the on sale through Ticketmaster, and as many as 60,000 couldn't get tickets.
"They had more people than they could take care of, which was very sweet for us," he said. "How do you take care of those people who weren't taken care of?"
When Brooks announced the residency last week, he promised fans he'd give them a new show each night and one they wouldn't forget. He plans to vary band members, incorporate occasional special guests and swap up instrumentation, background singers, or his set list to make each night a unique and memorable experience for the audience in the intimate space.
"Vegas is the place where anything goes, and The Colosseum at Caesars is the heart of Vegas," he said in a statement. "The perfect combination to present a show that will not only push the envelope, it's gonna shred it."
Brooks came back and revealed he planned to continue the residency in 2024 and that he would announce those days around the May opening of his Las Vegas 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," Brooks said in a statement.
Fans who signed up for the Verified Fan Presale and couldn't get tickets for the 2023 dates will be given priority access to buy tickets to the 2024 dates.
