Garth Brooks Announces His Return to San Antonio
Garth Brooks will return to San Antonio for a pair of upcoming tour dates after an absence of 18 years.
The country superstar has announced two shows at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, set to take place on Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23. The appearances are part of his ongoing world tour, which launched at the end of 2014 and is slated to last as long as three years. His wife, Trisha Yearwood, is also featured on the shows. Brooks recently celebrated selling his 4 millionth ticket to the tour, which has played multiple nights in many markets and includes a date at Yankee Stadium in July.
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 raking in $90 million, most of which he earned from live concerts.
Tickets for the San Antonio shows will go on sale June 3 at 10AM CT, exclusively via Ticketmaster or Ticketmaster Express. There will be an eight-ticket limit per purchase, and all seats will cost a total of $74.98. There will be no ticket sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets on June 3.
Brooks is also set to launch a new web series called Inside Studio G in July, which will take fans backstage at Brooks' gigs to show them the inner workings of the massive tour. The superstar is getting ready to record a new studio album, and he'll also share those sessions with fans via the broadcast.
“The thing I’m going to love most is getting ready to take you into the new album,” he says. “Take you into songwriting sessions, take you into recording sessions, see places. You’re going to see the room where 'The Dance’ was cut. You’re going to see the room we packed 15 people in to sing ‘Friends in Low Places,’ and you’re going to see the new album be created and you’re going to be part of it.”
