Garth Brooks Announces First Milwaukee Shows in 19 Years
Garth Brooks will be returning to the Milwaukee area for the first time in nearly 20 years to perform a pair of upcoming concerts.
The country icon announced two concerts at BMO Harris Bradley Center in a press release Wednesday (Aug. 19). The shows are scheduled for Friday, Sept. 25 and Saturday, Sept. 26 at 7PM, and if Milwaukee proves to be anything like other markets on Brooks' current world tour, that will leave room to add additional concerts later on those evenings if ticket demand is high.
Brooks announced his massive Garth Brooks World Tour in 2014 after taking more than a decade off from the road to raise his children. He released a new album, Man Against Machine, in November of 2014, and he's featuring a mix of his classic hits and new songs from the album at his shows.
The tour has been an enormous success, 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.
Tickets for the Milwaukee shows will go on sale Friday, Aug. 28 at 10AM CT, with an eight-ticket limit per purchase via Ticketmaster, or by calling Ticketmaster Express at 1-866-448-7849 or 1-800-745-3000. There will be no ticket sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets on Aug. 28. All seats will cost a total of $74.98.
