If Garth Brooks plans to tour this year, he could include that information during a live stream press conference later this week. It seems many major news outlets jumped the gun and stated that he had already announced tour dates for the remainder of this year.
According to an update on his website on July 7, Garth Brooks will hold a press conference that will be live-streamed later this week. Many news outlets linked to an appearance Garth made on “Good Morning America” in December 2013. At the time the multiple award-winning Brooks told Robin Roberts he did plan to tour but gave no details.
The live stream press conference will be held on Thursday, July 10 at 12 p.m. EDT, which is 11 a.m. CDT, and 9 a.m. PDT. The only details provided on the website are that this will be a live press conference. It does not specify if there will be any 2014 tour date information released.
The only specific tour information that Garth Brooks has released came in January 2013. The country icon announced he would return to Dublin, Ireland for a “Comeback Special Event.” This concert will be held at Croke Park on July 25 and July 26. In 1997 Garth played the venue to sell-out crowds while it was still under construction. Brooks promised fans he would return to play at Croke Park when the construction was finished.
During the press conference on Thursday Brooks is expected to announce several tour dates. Garth Brooks has spent much of the last decade in semi-retirement. He recently released a six CD set with a DVD of his live performance at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas. For three years Garth Brooks played a one-man show to sold-out crowds. The DVD in the “Blame It All On My Roots” boxed set was recorded live at the Wynn Resort.
