If you weren't up at 8am on Saturday to buy your tickets to Garth Brooks for his first five weekend shows at Encore, then you probably didn't get squat. Wynn Las Vegas said the shows were sold out by 1pm. Is it too soon to call Garth the savior of Vegas? Probably, yeah but if he can replicate these numbers for every weekend show, then we may change our position. The LV Sun writes:

During the course of the day, Wynn Las Vegas’ box office Web site received more than 5.4 million page views. The resort took more that 140,000 calls for tickets and had 40,000 people waiting for tickets in the online queue at any given moment.

Your only hope of getting tickets for this first batch of shows--Dec. 11-13, Jan. 1-3 and 22-24, Feb. 12-14 and 26-28--is picking up returned or unclaimed tickets. The price will still stand at $125. Or you could hit up eBay for two tickets at $460 on January 23. Hmmm...yeah, we're gonna pass on that offer.

UPDATE: Word on The Strip is that Wynncore may void tix that were bought for over $143 (the total ticket price after taxes.)

wynn underestimated the interest in Garth and the tix are priced too low in my opinion.
