During Inside Studio G on Facebook Live on July 29, Garth Brooks revealed the location and venue for the second stop of his Dive Bar Tour: Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, Calif.
The date of Garth’s show was revealed to be Aug. 15 on Tuesday morning (July 30) via country radio in region. Country radio is also the only place where people can secure tickets to the barroom event.
“What I love about the dive bars is it’s got all the electricity of the stadium show, and it’s packed in this little room,” Garth says. “Stadiums are the right size for ‘That Summer,’ ‘Friends in Low Places,’ ‘The Thunder Rolls,’ ‘Dive Bar.’ Those songs fill up that stadium. But I’ve also gotta tell ya—they’re so much at home in a honky-tonk. So, Bakersfield, here we come!”
The Crystal Palace is a special location for the G-man, as it’s the spot where he asked Trisha Yearwood to marry him in 2005.
Garth’s seven-date Dive Bar Tour takes its name from his current single, “Dive Bar,” which features Blake Shelton. Garth’s first show took place at Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago on July 15.
