Garth Brooks fans looking for tickets to the country star’s sold-out shows may get to see him perform after all.

Wynn Las Vegas released on its Twitter site this afternoon that, after canceling scalped Brooks tickets, some seats have been made available.

As of 8 p.m. Saturday, the Wynn box office said it had tickets available for tonight’s 10:30 show and Sunday's 8 p.m. performance.

Tickets are limited two per person and are $143 apiece, including taxes and fees.

Callers should ignore the voice prompt that says tickets are sold out and remain on the line until a representative answers.

Tickets for Brooks' first 20 performances sold out within hours of their release in October. Hours later, Wynn Resorts Chairman and Chief Executive Steve Wynn instituted an unusual anti-scalping procedure that has angered fans and ticket brokers alike. His resort not only demanded the name of every concertgoer for every ticket purchased but said tickets could be picked up only on the day of the show and photo IDs would be checked at the door.

Brooks began his first performances Friday night at the Encore Theater with two more shows tonight and one Sunday. Other confirmed dates include Jan. 1-3 and 22-24, Feb. 12-14 and 26-28.

Wynn has said the resort will be announcing additional shows soon.
