Garth Brooks Adds Unprecedented Fourth Show in Ottawa
Garth Brooks’ World Tour is consistently breaking records in both attendance and revenue, and now he’s adding one more date to his jam-packed schedule in Ottawa, Ontario. The legend will now play a show at 3PM on April 3 at the Canadian Tire Centre in addition to three other performances the evenings of April 1-3, which set a record with their one-day sellout.
The new show is the third performance that has been added to the schedule after the original announcement of the one-date stop in Ottawa April 2, 2016, marking his first show in the city for 20 years. Upon seeing the demand, the artist quickly added two more dates and completely sold out all three Jan. 22 for a total of 50,000 tickets sold. Tickets for the new show will go on sale Feb. 4 at 10AM.
Brooks was named the top-earning country artist of 2015 by Forbes with a total of $90 million, largely due to the success of his tour, which has reportedly earned around $1 million per show. He released his first new record in 13 years, titled Man Against Machine, in Nov. 2015, which has since been certified platinum by the RIAA. The tour also features Brooks’ wife Trisha Yearwood, who released a new record recently as well titled PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit.
The superstar plans on wrapping up the American leg of his world tour in Nashville, where he’s said Carrie Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher is welcome to join him on stage after Fisher's car karaoke version of “The River.” Underwood posted a video on Instagram of her hubs serenading her with the classic Brooks tune, noting she "always wanted to marry Garth” — little did Fisher know he would be challenged to a real performance. No news yet on whether or not Fisher will accept.
