Garth Brooks has been on his perpetual tour for approximately three years, and it's hard to believe it's finally coming to an end — in the United States and Canada, anyway.

The Garth Brooks World Tour With Trisha Yearwood will wrap up its North American leg this December after selling 5.5 million tickets and becoming one of the highest ranking tours in the world. Brooks acknowledged the end of his North American road run in a recent interview with NewsOK.

The country music icon achieved massive success while touring in the '90s and has impressively managed to repeat his success in the new millennium.

Garth Is Among Country's Highest Paid, But Who's No. 1? 

“The biggest tour of the '90s was the tour that we were lucky enough to be on," Brooks says. "This tour is dwarfing that."

"So when it’s all said and done and it’s January, it’s funny, what am I gonna miss? I’m gonna miss this. It’s the greatest way to spend your days,” he adds, wiping away tears. ... "I don’t know how it gets better than this. What the future is, I don’t know. Will we ever tour this hard again? I seriously doubt it. But you never say never, and God has blessed us. I never thought this tour would happen. I thought when we hung it up to raise the babies in 2000, I thought we were done then. So this has been a wonderful surprise, and I’m always up for those down the line.”

Brooks is currently on the seventh leg of his North American tour, which includes over 10 U.S. cities (some with multiple shows) and a multi-night stop in Edmonton, Canada. Though shows will halt in the west come December, Brooks is expected to book a number of international dates in the coming years.
