Garth Brooks is leaving Las Vegas after three years of sold-out shows at the Wynn.

Brooks, 50, came out of his self-imposed retirement in 2009 to do weekend gigs at the Wynn Las Vegas' Encore Theatre.

He said he has enjoyed his time in Vegas and had some of the best audiences in the world.

If you're a fan, there are only a handful shows left on his schedule through mid-November. His last shows are Nov. 16-17.
