Garth Brooks Adds Three More Tour Dates in Columbus
Garth Brooks’ World Tour has been wildly successful, so much so that he’s adding shows left and right. The artist just announced that he will be adding three dates to his stop at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio.
The three new dates are: April 15, April 16 and April 22, in addition to the original date of April 23. Tickets for all four shows in Columbus go on sale Feb. 26. This will be Brooks’ first time to play in the city in 19 years.
Brooks has been adding shows due to popular demand at several cities on his tour, including Louisville, Ottawa and Las Vegas. He also announced that he will be wrapping up the tour in Nashville when he put out an invite for Carrie Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher to join him on stage after Fisher’s Instagram debut covering “The Dance."
The country icon released a new studio record for the first time in 13 years in November 2015 called Man Against the Machine, which has already been certified platinum by the RIAA. Brooks also said he and wife Trisha Yearwood may finally be putting out that duets album fans have been vying for soon. It’s slated to be a Christmas album, and the singer reveals wife Yearwood knocked it out of the park when they worked on it over the holidays.
“To hear her do ‘What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?’ is like, ‘Oh my God!’” Brooks gushes. “It was supposed to be a duet … About 30 seconds into the song I just walked out of the studio because I knew it wasn’t going to be a duet. I wasn’t about to open my mouth after that, you know? It’s just her doing her greatest Ella [Fitzgerald], you know, impersonation with Trisha kinda mixed in there … It was amazing!”
Brooks’ World Tour has made him the top-earning country artist of 2015 according to Forbes, bringing in about $1 million per show.
