Brooks announces stadium tour

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 – Garth Brook is going back on the road.

While saying that he intended to take off 2019, he, instead, announced today the North American Stadium Tour, hitting five stadiums per year for the next three years. Brooks announced the first two venues as State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. and The Dome at America's Center in St. Louis.

Concert dates and ticket on-sale information will be announced very soon, he said on his website.

Brooks said that five cities will be on sale before Christmas. The stadium tour will feature an all new stage and new band members.

Brooks also announced that the Notre Dame concert he is playing this Saturday night is set to become a TV special. "Garth: Live from Notre Dame!" will air Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. eastern/Pacific on CBS. This marks the first live concert ever held at Notre Dame Stadium.

Brooks will release "The Anthology Part III, LIVE" on Nov. 20. From his first on-stage appearance in college to multi-sold-out stadium shows around the world. The five-CD package includes the new live album, "TRIPLE LIVE." The package contains 52 live recordings, photos and text penned by Brooks.

This is going to be fun," he said. "I wanted to call it the Big Ass Stadium Tour. It's the stadium tour."

"This is all about game day," he said. "Every show is going to be game day or Garth day however you want to look at it. Dress in your full colors. Support your team. Let's go have some fun."

CD review - Man Against Machine After releasing his debut album in 1989, Garth Brooks released music almost every year until he announced his retirement in 2000. Since then, he has released repackaged hit collections, new music on "Scarecrow" and "The Lost Sessions" and last year's cover song collection "Blame it All on My Roots." Over the years, there have been live recordings, concert and music video collections. The country songwriter became a pop culture icon, transcending genre to become ...
CD review - Blame It All On My Roots - Five Decades of Influences Garth Brooks is back with his first release of "new" material since 2001's "Scarecrow." (Truth in advertising, his "The Ultimate Hits," which actually is part of the new box set, included four new songs back in 2007). And it's quite an undertaking - four CDs of covers - Country Classics, Classic Rock, Blue-Eyed Soul and Melting Pot, an amalgam of country, rock, soul and folk; the two-CD set, "The Ultimate Set" and a DVD of his live performance in Vegas. ...
