    I'm really curious to see what's going to go into Wynn once Garth is finished there. Does anyone know? Any rumours or speculation??

    I have been wondering too, in fact I thought Garth was done other than a very few one-time performances. I wish they'd get a good show in there other than LeReve:rolleyes2:

    Count me in as wondering the same and wishing for more than LeReve.

    The brilliance of getting Garth is that he took time out at the top of his game by choice. It wasn't the case of a career fizzling out and in dire need of a comeback. Hence, the massive appeal and demand for tickets. I'm hard pressed to think of another entertainer with that sort of similar situation.

    I have no clue who could replace him, late last year there were plenty of billy joel rumors but nothing came of it

    He would be a nice fit for the older wynn crowd with money thats for sure

    Or how about Fleetwood Mac on a regular basis. How cool would that be? Or as a real stretch, how about AC/DC? :drunk:

    Last year there were rumours of Billy Joel having a limited run but that seems
    to have fizzled out.

    Fleetwood Mac would be fantastic. We saw them at MGM a few years back
    and they were great. Wynncore probably wants to go with something a little more short-run and intimate like "An evening with..."

    I think Lionel Richie would be good in Vegas.

    I stayed at a MILFe property a few years ago and they were so desperate to give away tickets to Lionel Richie's show they ran a promotion where they would give you a pair of tickets for racking up some points on your MILFe card.

    It's hard to generate enough money in that space for an entire arena rock band to be satisfied (The Eagles, U2, The Rolling Bones).

    Billy Joel puts on a great show (or at least he did 20 years ago) but I'm not sure he could physically or mentally pull of an extended gig.

    Paul McCartney would sell tickets but I can't see him doing an extended Vegas gig.

    Perhaps Bruce Springsteen could ditch the E Street band once again and go in unplugged, but the billionaire may not like the perception of playing for "The Common Man" at the Wynn.

    Not sure Jon Bon Jovi can pull something like this off. I don't think there are big enough viable musical options to fill the shoes of Garth Brooks, in terms of broad support at a high price level.
