Garth Brooks Announces First Tennessee World Tour Stops
Garth Brooks' World Tour is getting closer to Nashville.
The country superstar has announced that the first set of Tennessee dates on his current tour will be in Knoxville, Tenn. Brooks has not played in Knoxville in more than 18 years.
The new tour dates — which also include Brooks' wife Trisha Yearwood — are scheduled for May 28, 29, 30 and 31 at Thompson Boling Arena. All shows will begin at 7:30PM.
Tickets for the newly announced concerts are set to go on sale on April 24 at 10AM ET through KnoxvilleTickets.com or by phone at 1-844-4GarthB (1-844-442-7842). Tickets will cost $69.23, plus a $5.75 service charge, totaling $74.98, and there will be a limit of eight tickets per purchase.
Brooks' World Tour kicked off in September in Chicago; Knoxville is the 21st stop to be announced. The tour has already stopped in Boston, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, St. Louis and more, and there are dates already scheduled through mid-June. A complete list of past and upcoming stops is available here.
“For me, I don’t care about the dollar bill bottom line, I care about the memories of, did I have fun there? Did we get to do stuff as a crew there, as a band there?” Brooks says of selecting cities for the tour. “You betcha, we’re going back to all the fun places.”
Brooks and Yearwood will take a break from the World Tour this weekend (April 18-19) for the 2015 ACM Awards. The couple will be hosting a gala for ACM Lifting Lives on Saturday, and Brooks is nominated for Entertainer of the Year and scheduled to perform during the Sunday awards ceremony.
