Thus far, the only date officially marked on the tour is September 4th at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. Garth Brooks tickets are currently available at Coast to Coast Tickets for as low as $245. Lower level tickets begin at $309, while floor seats will cost you a minimum of $705.

Brooks recently had to cancel five dates at Croke Park in Dublin, due to an agreement  between the city and the stadium that limited the number of sporting events every year to three. Since they were unable to come to a compromise, Brooks decided it was unfair to cancel some shows and not the others, so the entire Dublin ‘tour’ was canceled. Although that controversy upset many, fans were obviously giddy when soon after, Garth announced his intentions for a much larger scale tour.

One of the biggest announcements this week came from legendary singer and songwriter Garth Brooks. The performer revealed that he will be canceling five of the shows that are currently scheduled for his comeback tour event. The singer has had to cancel five of the shows in Dublin after the city council denied the permits for two of the dates on the tour. These shows were expected to start on July 25th and scheduled to draw in more than 400,000 fans. Ticket holders will be refunded for those who have them. The singer has been retired for more than a decade and was planning on performing the shows as part of a comeback tour. More concert dates to replace these shows in other cities are expected to be announced in an attempt to fill out the singer’s schedule. The singer has a press conference on July 10th to make some major announcements; including plans for what many believe will be a worldwide tour, even despite the latest cancellations.
