PEARL RECORDS’ GARTH BROOKS has announced the final show for the NORTH AMERICAN leg of his “GARTH BROOKS WORLD TOUR WITH TRISHA YEARWOOD,” and it will be in his adopted hometown of NASHVILLE. BROOKS originally launched the tour in CHICAGO back in SEPTEMBER 2014 and has since played approximately 400 shows in just over 70 cities across the span of three years. BROOKS’ NASHVILLE show is set to hit BRIDGESTONE ARENA on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16th at 7:30p (CT). In celebration of the conclusion of the three-year tour, and to commemorate the impending seventh anniversary of BROOKS’ “NASHVILLE FLOOD RELIEF CONCERT” series at BRIDGESTONE ARENA in 2010, BROOKS was joined today (11/1) by NASHVILLE Mayor MEGAN BARRY and TENNESSEE Governor BILL HASLAM to unveil a banner that will hang permanently at the ARENA. BROOKS also discussed the conclusion of his tour, telling ALL ACCESS, “If you want to see a GARTH show, come on out. This is the last stop. So, if it goes one show, or if it goes 40 shows, I’m going to run, because you’re home. This is going to be fun.” Tickets for the show go on sale FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10th at 10a (CT) via TICKETMASTER. Per BROOKS’ typical model, shows will be added until ticket demands are met.
It seems there’s no end to the good will of Garth Brooks as he takes time out of every single show to help make fans’ dreams come true. This was true last night when he noticed a fan proposing in front of the stage and offered to pay for their honeymoon, and it was true two nights ago as he made this amazing moment happen: *Warning… turn down your volume until the music starts at about 2 minutes in. That crowd is something else! The musician on that was on stage was none other than fellow Oklahoman Jonathan Chasteen, and we sure are proud to have him! you can see Jonathan at The Cherokee Ramona casino in Ramona Oklahoma on August 4th at 9pm Save
