Garth Brooks shows scheduled for Las Vegas in January

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Dec 3, 2013

Although Garth Brooks capped his solo run at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas with a live TV special, he's got a few more shows scheduled there -- and they'll surely do nothing to quell the rampant rumors of a fully fledged comeback for the iconic entertainer. From Jan. 3-4, Garth will play four shows with his full band at the Encore.

While his one-man show focused on music that influenced him, the singer plans to play his own hits during this concert, which is titled Garth Brooks: The Man, His Band and His Music.

"I've been itching for the chance to bring my band to Vegas to play this room," says Garth. But on the subject of what these shows might lead to, Garth continues to stay relatively mum, saying only, "Will there be something else down the road? Who knows! I'm just going to enjoy getting to turn it up in Las Vegas and play with the band again."

Tickets for Garth's full-band shows will go on sale Friday, Dec. 6 at Ticketmaster.

Garth's Thanksgiving weekend TV special, was a winner for CBS. His final (solo) Las Vegas concert, which aired Friday, managed to double the ratings of another holiday offering, the Thanksgiving night airing of a Lady Gaga/Muppets special.
