Garth Brooks Hits the Big Screen

10/10/2007 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For one brief minute in 1999, country music phenom Garth Brooks introduced the masses to his weird alt-rocker alter ego "Chris Gaines" -- RIP -- and thankfully, he was never heard from again! But it now it looks like Garth's got another multiple personality under his hat -- movie star?!

Brooks is taking a break from one of those self-imposed faux-retirements that musicians do, and signed on to do nine concerts this November in country music hotspot Kansas City, Missouri. While tix for all performances are already sold out (for reals!), Brooks has struck a deal to have one of the concerts simulcast to more than 300 movie theaters around the country. Cool beans, y'all!

Garth-ophiles will have to wait to find out when to rush to the theaters -- reps for the event have yet to announce a date.

Can't he just stay retired and quit playing those games that so many artists do.It is just an excuse to drive up sales,and jack up ticket prices.

I like a couple of Garth songs &, even though, he has a good voice, really don't care for him. To me he's a phony.

All of you haters are ridiculous. Garth sold all 9 concerts out in under two hours. Guess there's still plenty of fans out there who would love to see him in concert. Is anyone lining up to see you? Didn't think so. Get over yourselves.

130 millions albums sold. Even Rockers love him. #1 American Solo artist of all time. And he still sells out.

But yeah, washed up has been.

I'm kind of surprised that he sold out all these concerts, he hasn't had a hit song in ages. I had forgotten about him.

To #5, this may sound bad for KC, but being born and raised here, I know how much revenue this brought in. LOVE the fact he is here. Don't even like his music, but love the media and press for KC. He even chose this cow town. Must know something you big city folk don't...

who cares what all u haters think. Garth is one of-if not the most sucessful- atrists of all time! with nine sell out shows (that sold out in an HOUR) and more than 100 million albums sold in the US alone, obviously SOMEONE is a fan.

I'm thrilled Garth has come out of retirement for a short while...I only wish I was one of the lucky ones who are getting to see him in concert.....hopefully I can catch him on the movie screen.
Shame on each of you who have nothing better to do that to dog someone!

I really prefer his Crack-head EX WIFE Sandy. Boy was she fun when she had the ex-con brother of a boyfriend partying in the house and he held her hostage. That's country Y'all!
