Earlier this month, Garth Brooks announced he will play an upcoming show at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana—making the G-man the first artist to play a concert on the hallowed field. While a date for the event still hasn’t been announced, Garth has hinted that his upcoming “tour” will be cut from the same cloth as the Notre Dame show, which means we can expect more unique venues and interesting locations.
According to Garth’s latest Inside Studio G Facebook series, he’s going to tour in “a way I’ve never toured before”—a definite change from his exhaustive World Tour (390 shows) that launched in 2014 and capped in 2017.
“You’re gonna have—we’re all going to have—plenty of time in between each gig,” says Garth. “We’ll be able to do a gig . . . the crew will come home, be with their family, and then we’ll run out to another gig. Very rarely, if ever, will there be back-to-back gigs on this one. So, we will be bouncing around, but these are going to be individual events . . . hopefully incorporating the traditions of where we’re playing, which makes them each their own. This should be pretty cool. And when I say we’re touring in a way I’ve never toured before, that would definitely be one of the first steps.”
