Garth Brooks Hints at Australian, European World Tour Dates
According to Taste of Country, Brooks is in talks to head overseas once the North American portion of his World Tour wraps up in 2017. Before his shows at New York City’s Yankee Stadium on July 8 and 9, Brooks told media members that he’s got about 20 more cities left to hit in the United States and Canada before heading over to Europe and, perhaps, Australia.
“The guys from Australia came up and talked to us, they were very sweet,” Brooks tells Taste of Country. “And, of course, Europe -- we [Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood] could probably trade places in Europe. They worship her over there, and should.”
For now, Brooks will continue to tour North America and record new music. Forthcoming World Tour stops include Shreveport-Bossier City, La., and Anaheim, Calif., and fans can catch a glimpse at Brooks inside the studio via Facebook Live as he works on the follow-up project to 2014's Man Against Machine. The singer had plans for a follow-up album in 2015 or 2016, but that project has since been delayed so that he can work on writing what he calls “the most Garth thing I have ever done.”
In addition to working on a forthcoming album, Brooks recently announced that he will lend his name to a SiriusXM radio station beginning in September.
