It’s been a seventeen year wait, but Garth Brooks has come out of retirement and will kick off his long-awaited tour in Chicago, at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, on Sept. 4. Co-headlining the show will be Trisha Yearwood (this brings back good memories from Garth’s last tour, on which Trisha was the opening act).
“As an entertainer, you get asked a lot ‘what are the best cities to play?’ Without hesitation, I rattle five or six of the best places to play and that list ALWAYS includes Chicago. It is the PERFECT city to launch the World Tour!” said Garth Brooks in a press release.
Tickets for the show will go on sale on July 25 at 10:00 a.m. CST. There will be a limit of six tickets per purchase. While there will be no sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets, fans can make their purchases online at http://www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling Ticketmaster Express at 1-866-448-7849. The cost of the tickets will be $56.94 plus $2.56 tax and $6.00 service charge, bringing the total up to $65.50 per ticket.
In other Garth news, he announced that he will now be embracing digital downloads. Garth has always been against selling individual album tracks, and has refused to do digital downloads. But, even though he will be offering his entire catalog for sale digitally, he will only do so on his official website, http://www.garthbrooks.com.
Garth is working on a new album, and it will be released through Sony Music Nashville around Black Friday.
