Garth Brooks Adds New Orleans to World Tour
Garth Brooks has never before headlined a concert in New Orleans, but that's about to change.

Tickets will cost $66.73, plus a $2 facility fee and a $6.25 service charge, for a total of $74.98. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-866-448-7849 or 1-800-745-3000.
Brooks has been on his World Tour since last September, when he kicked things off in Chicago, and has been setting ticket sales records in city after city.
“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.”
Upcoming stops on Brooks' World Tour include Knoxville, Tenn.; Tampa, Fla.; Birmingham, Ala.; and Houston, Texas. A complete list of dates is available here.
