Garth Brooks Adds 5 More Dallas Shows

Garth Brooks

After an overwhelming demand from fans, Garth Brooks has added five additional dates in Dallas for his  world tour.

Garth initially announced two Dallas dates, Sept. 18 and 19 at the American Airlines Center. Tickets for those two dates went on sale the morning of July 24 and over 100,000 were sold before noon. Two more shows on the original dates have been added, as well as new shows on Sept. 17, 20 and 22.

The Dallas concerts will be the first back on the road after a 10-week touring break for Garth. He says his extended time performing across the country has inspired him to debut a completely new stage production and design in Dallas.

“We have taken a lot of looks at what’s working, gotten rid of the things that weren’t, and we’re coming out with a brand-new look,” Garth told 102.3 BlakeFM. “We’re gonna re-design the whole video world, the wings of the stage are a little different, and the set list is starting to fall into the sweet spot.”

Garth says he’s excited for the new changes, which will surprise even those fans who attended dates on the first leg of his tour.

“If anybody came to Tulsa, or down to Houston or over to New Orleans or whatever, this is gonna be a different look than what they saw.”

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have their Malibu getaway up for sale again at $7.5 million – the same price they were asking about this time last year.

The single-story, ranch-style house, built in 1958, was remodeled eight years ago and features vaulted ceilings and skylights. Clerestory windows and walls of glass bring light into the 4,236 square feet of interiors.

Grand Ole Opry members Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood made a surprise appearance before a sold-out crowd at the Grand Ole Opry tonight. Introduced by fellow Opry member Vince Gill, Yearwood said to the awestruck audience, “I didn’t have a chance to bring my band or call them or anything, but luckily I live with a Grand Ole Opry member, so if you all would make welcome my guitar player tonight, my husband, Mr. Garth Brooks!” With Brooks on acoustic guitar, Yearwood sang her debut No. 1 smash “She’s In Love With The Boy.”

With, as Yearwood said, “total love and respect to the artists who recorded these songs,” the two then delivered a medley of some of their favorite classic country duets. “We rehearsed in the truck on the way here, so…” Yearwood said as Brooks interjected, “Good luck!” The couple then delivered portions of classics by Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn (“After The Fire Is Gone”), Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius (“I Don’t Want To Have To Marry You”), and George Jones and Tammy Wynette (“Golden Ring”).

Brooks is currently breaking attendance and sell-out records across the U.S. on his “The Garth Brooks World Tour” promoting his current album MAN AGAINST MACHINE.  His next tour stops take him to Houston, Texas on June 26 & 27 and July 3 & 4 and then on to New Orleans, Louisiana on July 10, 11 & 12.

Yearwood’s current album PRIZE FIGHTER is just one of her many exciting projects. The Grammy®-winning singer is also a cookbook author, recently releasing the best-selling Trisha’s Table. She can be seen regularly on the Food Network’s show “Trisha’s Southern Table.”

The Opry is in the midst of its 90th Anniversary celebration, which is set to continue throughout 2015. Among those coming soon to the Opry stage are Kelsea Ballerini, Crystal Gayle, Gill, Hunter Hayes, Maddie & Tae, David Nail, Oak Ridge Boys, Carrie Underwood, and more.  Additional information is available at 800-SEE-OPRY and

Garth Brooks Makes Massive Return to Houston, Tickets Exceed $170 on Secondary Market

Garth Brooks

For Houston country fans the wait is over: Garth Brooks is back on the road.  It has been a massive 15 years since Brooks’ last tour, and is he is going out with a bang for his much anticipated return to Houston, Texas.  He will be playing an impressive eight show run at the Toyota Center in June and July.  The country superstar’s eight shows will also include his wife Trisha Yearwood. The shows are set for Friday, June 26 at 7pm and 10:30pm, Saturday, June 27 at 7pm and 10:30pm, Friday, July 3 at 7pm and 10:30pm and Saturday, July 4 at 7pm and 10:30pm.  The tour is in support of his most recent studio album, Man Against Machine, which he released in November of 2014.  Before “Man Against Machine’s” release, fans had not seen new material from Brooks since “Scarecrow” in 2001.

Brooks is considered one of the most pivotal figures in country music history. Since his debut in 1989, he has sold 70 million albums in the U.S. alone.  In 2001, he called it quits from music to refocus his attention to his family, and specifically his daughters.  In 1998, Brooks sold out five shows at Compaq Center (now Lakewood Church) in Houston, and he played RodeoHouston in 1991 and 1993.  You can bet Houston fans are beyond thrilled for his return, and his ticket sales are indicative of that.  The average price of secondary market Garth Brooks tickets on TiqIQ for the eight-show run in Houston is $172.16.  His most expensive night is June 27, where the average price is $225.83, with a get-in price at $77.  On the fourth of July, tickets to see Garth Brooks are at their least expensive rate for both show times: The 7pm show has an average ticket price of $134.77 with a get-in price at $38.  The 10:30pm show is slightly more expensive, and lists an average ticket price of $166.96, with a get-in price at $46.

In May, Brooks broke his Houston ticket sales record selling over 85,000, which was previously set at 81,039.  With such an epic Houston return, fans should expect to see even more from the country superstar as the year progresses.
