Garth Brooks Adds More Dates to Canadian Run
Garth Brooks has added five additional shows to his upcoming run north of the border after experiencing unusual high ticket sales on Friday (April 29).
The country legend and wife Trisha Yearwood initially announced a single concert date at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, slated for June 11. The show marked Brooks' first concert appearance in the area in nearly two decades, and according to a press release, when tickets went on sale Friday morning, demand was so high that Brooks quickly added five additional concerts. His run at the SaskTel Centre will now kick off Thursday, June 9 and conclude on Sunday, June 12, including two shows on both June 10 and June 11.
Tickets are still on sale for all shows via Ticketmaster or Ticketmaster Express, with an eight-ticket limit per purchase. All seats cost a total of $79.98.
Brooks' comeback World Tour hit the road in late 2014, and he has said it might last as long as three years. So far it has been very successful, playing multiple nights in a number of markets, including Louisville,Ottawa and Las Vegas. Pollstar named Brooks the top touring country artist for the first six months of 2015, and he also ranked No. 1 on Forbes‘ year-end list of the highest-earning stars in country music in 2015 after taking in $90 million, mostly from his live appearances.
Brooks and Yearwood are currently recording a long-promised Christmas album, and after that he says he will turn his attention to a new studio album. He plans to share the making of that project via social media.
"We're gonna bring you in on making this album … songwriting sessions, everything from recording,” he revealed in a recent Facebook chat. “It’s gonna be a blast.”
