Garth Brooks Adds First 2016 Dates to World Tour
Garth Brooks has announced his first World Tour dates for 2016 -- in Florida.
Brooks will stop at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., on Jan. 14, 15 and 16; the show on Jan. 14 will take place at 7:30PM, while the shows on Jan. 15 and 16 are scheduled for 7PM. It will be the first time in 19 years that the country superstar has played in South Florida. His wife Trisha Yearwood will be joining him as his special guest, as she has at all of the other World Tour stops.
Tickets for Brooks' Sunrise shows are scheduled to go on sale on Nov. 6 at 10AM ET through Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-866-448-7849 or 1-800-745-3000. Tickets will cost $60.83, plus $3.65 in taxes, a $4.25 facility fee and a $6.25 service charge, totaling $74.98. There will be an 8-ticket limit per purchase.
Sunrise will be the second Florida city that Brooks hits on his World Tour. In October of 2014, shortly after kicking off his World Tour in Chicago, Ill., Brooks played six shows in Jacksonville, Fla. A complete list of Brooks' past and upcoming World Tour dates is available here.
Brooks and Yearwood have been on the road for more than a year now; however, those fans who were hoping to hear new music from Brooks soon may have to wait a bit longer than anticipated — though not because of his tour. The country star recently revealed that he lost six months’ worth of songs he was working on, thanks to a broken cell phone.
“All the new stuff, which I’ve been working on for six months, was on a phone that’s been fried, and I can’t get the phone to come back up,” Brooks explains. “I know I should have backed it up. It’s like losing your briefcase back in the ’90s.”
