Garth Brooks Plans Portland, Ore., Concerts
Garth Brooks has added shows in Portland, Ore., to his World Tour.
Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood will play Portland's Moda Center on April 12 at 4PM and 8PM, April 13 at 7:30PM, April 15 at 7:30PM and April 16 at 7:30PM. It will be Brooks' first time in Portland in over 18 years.
Tickets for the concerts go on sale March 6 at 10AM PT at Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or 1-866-448-7849. Tickets will cost $64.75, plus $3.89 in taxes and a $6.25 service charge, totaling $74.89. There will be a limit of eight tickets per purchase.
Brooks' World Tour is currently in Detroit, Mich., through the end of the month. He will head to Buffalo, N.Y., in early March, then venture out west for shows in Colorado and California, before hitting Oregon. A complete list of tour dates is available here.
Brooks and Yearwood will take some time off from touring in mid-April to host the "One Night, Two Cities, All Music" fundraising gala, benefiting ACM Lifting Lives, on April 17, prior to the 2015 ACM Awards on April 19.
The country superstar is also working on a follow-up album to Man Against Machine, his most recent release. Brooks has mentioned the possibility of it being a concept album, and he has also hinted at a duets record with Yearwood, but no matter what type of music the disc contains, Brooks says it will be out late this year or early next.
“We’re planning on hearing something new from us hopefully around Christmas, or next spring,” he says. “If you remember us, we do one about once a year, so it’s coming up. It just seemed to work for us as far as the tour, being refreshed and new with new gas in it and stuff, the new music in it. It also lets you re-work your tour a year in, which is great ’cause it fits the new album.”
