Garth Brooks revealed future tour plans when he was interviewed on the Dr. Don Show on Monday, December 16. The country superstar discussed his surprise tour announcement and why Detroit remains extremely special to him.
“I kinda jumped to the announcement. I was sitting next to Robin Roberts and never had any plan on saying it,” Garth said about his recent “Good Morning America” appearance.
He continued, “I just love her (Robin Roberts) and we have been together for a hundred years. I said yes. And it was like a thousand pound weight had been lifted off my chest.”
“We are excited about this but because of that we don’t have any schedule set up yet,” Garth revealed about his upcoming 2014 tour.
While no specific cities have been announced, Garth admitted that Detroit is one place the tour will most definitely visit.
“There’s a song called, “The Old Stuff,” off of “Fresh Horses,” where it goes, “And I pray that Detroit!” and that’s where it all started. That’s where I got to see George Jones for the first time, I got to see Kathy Mattea for the first time. That was big for me,” Garth reminisced.
Garth stated, “There’s no such thing as a Garth Brooks tour without Detroit; are you kidding me?”
Garth Brooks continues to make radio and television appearances in support of his latest release, “Blame It All On My Roots,” a collection of cover songs and his greatest hits. His world tour will kick off in 2014 and span three years. Garth’s wife Trisha Yearwood will appear on the tour as well.
