Garth Brooks Announces Two Nights in Knoxville
After retiring from the road 13 years ago, country legend Garth Brooks is back and better than ever. In early January, he announced that he and the band would perform two gigs in Ireland in July. Sadly, those shows were cancelled, but the statement he released left fans speculating: “Before we go back on tour in the fall of 2014, I want to challenge myself, the band and the crew.” Indeed, after a mysterious message on the official Garth Brooks website stated: “The wait is over… 7/7″ fans flooded the site to find out exactly what Garth had in store. The cryptic message was replaced with information about a news conference taking place at noon ET the following Thursday. At said news conference, Brooks made the announcement that fans had been waiting over a decade for: it’s time for a tour!
It seems the superstar country singer is making up for lost time from the road in a big way, and he is embarking on a world tour that will take place over the next three years. Three years! He is unveiling dates slowly, announcing a few shows a week. The most recent city unveiled is Knoxville, TN, at the Thompson Bowling Arena on May 29 & 30. Additionally, a third show has been added on May 28. Those go on sale April 24 at 10am.
