Garth Brooks Reportedly Set to Announce New Album, World Tour
Garth Brooks reportedly has more than one piece of good news for his fans.
According to Billboard, the country superstar is set to announce a new album in addition to his expected world tour at a press conference set for 12PM ET on Thursday (July 10). Sources report that Brooks has signed a new deal with Sony to release a new full-length studio album, followed by a "massive" tour. The singer has been rumored to be cutting new tracks in Nashville over the past week.
Brooks is reportedly going to kick off his tour in the US this fall, and will be keeping ticket prices as low as $60 - $80 in an effort to draw as many people to the shows as possible.
Ben Farrell of Lon Varnell Enterprises will be the promoter for the bulk of the dates, according to Billboard. After the US dates are complete, the trek is expected to go global and could last for two or three years.
On Tuesday, Brooks announced that he was pulling out of all five of his planned comeback shows at Croke Park in Ireland after the Dublin City Council refused to grant licenses for two of the concerts, saying it was unfair to pick and choose which fans could see him and which could not.
