Garth Brooks Announces First Cleveland Concerts in Nearly 20 Years
Garth Brooks has announced two upcoming concerts in Cleveland, marking his first live appearances in that market in 19 years.
The country superstar and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, have announced shows on Friday, Oct. 9 and Saturday, Oct. 10 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Both shows are scheduled for 7PM, and if Cleveland proves to be anything like other cities on the massive Garth Brooks world tour, that leaves room for more shows to be added later on those same nights, as Brooks has been selling out multiple shows in most markets.
Brooks announced his return to the concert stage in 2014 after taking a number of years off to raise his children. He released a new album, Man Against Machine, in November of 2014. Brooks is featuring a mix of his classic hits and new songs from the album at his shows, which also feature new and old music from Yearwood, who released her latest project, PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit, in November as well.
Fans who attend the current leg of the tour will be seeing a whole new stage show, since Brooks took several weeks off before announcing his run of shows in Dallas to revamp his set list and staging. The tour has been a runaway success so far, with Brooks earning the top spot of any country artist on Forbes' list of the top-earning celebrities. Pollstar also named him the top touring country artist for the first half of 2015, raking in $79.9 million over the course of 74 shows so far.
Tickets for the upcoming Cleveland dates will go on sale Friday, Aug. 21 at 10AM ET, available exclusively via the Quicken Loans Arena website or by calling 1-844-63GARTH (844-634-2784). All seats will cost a total of $74.98. There will be no ticket sales at the venue box office or outlets on Aug. 21.
