    Getting tickets will be so so hard! That said... I hope it is true too. Especially that he will REALLY do a World Tour this time!!
    The sevens have aligned. It has begun...

    How will the new tour go? Will it be the same as the last with a two week break between? Or every weekend? Or just keep traveling with a day or two break between. I don't think it will be the last option because I think he would eventually have to play Mondays and I don't see him touring and studio g at the same time.

    It’s going to be a series of 7 outdoor, free shows ala Central Park.

    No he didn't say he WAS GOING PLACES, but he'd LIKE TO GO.. the exact (about) quote was:

    that’s a great question- the cities you want to go to is where people want to hear the music, so the cities I’m about to announce off my head, I don’t even know if they know who Garth Brooks is,, Fair Enough? so, Mexico City, and um, Moscow, we’ve never done asia, and I’ve love to do Asia.. The greatest compliment are the ones you’ve been to, and you want to go back. So we’re talking Dublin , we’re talking Minneapolis/St Paul, all those places that hug you, and seem to love the music, so …
    he was announcing places he'd LIKE to go.. not that he IS GOING to...

    So here is a guess...
    • Multiple Front Rows
    • Something that has never been done
    • Multiple shows being announced at once
    • Lyrics from Road I'm On

    What if he went to a city - and over the weekend played different sized venues. Start out at a Small intimate venue (Honkytonk or Bluebird Café type) on Thursday night. Play a theater on Friday night and end up at the Stadium on Saturday night.

    The logistics would be extremely difficult but when he talks about the team pulling something off that he didn't think was possible - this fits the bill.

    Sounds like it’s in the round staging to me!

    Or like Mercedes Benz in Atlanta, depends on how you look at it, there were 8 front rows.

    Well, back again to having no idea what it could be. Still hoping it's a medium sized theatre tour, but it keeps sounding like others are somehow involved, and if he was playing theatres, it would likely be his deal alone.

    So my new guess is that it's a sort of traveling festival, Garth as the headliner, but other acts during the afternoon leading up to him. Perhaps Trisha doing her own set prior to Garth. Then she could come back out to do a duet during Garth's set. Maybe there's a side stage and other activities going on. The ticket price would likely be higher, given the additional acts involved, but people would perceive it as a good value depending upon who those other acts were. It would seem that you wouldn't want someone with any possibility of upstaging Garth.

    If it's a traveling music festival then the thing about "never been done before" is out the window. George Strait did that in the 90's

    When Garth has finished playing the Iconic stadiums in the USA, here's some overseas ones he might like to try.

    Stade d France https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:G...103531294).jpg

    Nov Camp Spain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:2...celona_B40.jpg

    MCG Australia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melbou...nal_anthem.jpg

    Eden Park New Zealand https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eden_P...Dusk,_2013.jpg

    Bejing stadium https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beijin...ium_2014_2.jpg


    or even the ugliest sports stadium in history, wellington, Newzealand, The cake tin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wellin...ember_2017.jpg

    Anybody want to guess when he'll play in New York again. I'll be going later in the year. It would seem quite odd to go on a non-concert holiday.

    I posted this in the other thread but thought it belonged here too..

    I have heard from a number of sources that there is a plan to bring this stadium tour to Croke Park
    in May or June of next year. No idea of number of nights or details but the plan has been put to the venue and the local council to try and make it happen. This comes from
    someone heavily involved with concert promotion in Ireland. I asked the question about other cities in Europe or further afield and they had no info. They mentioned that this
    is very much a sport stadium tour and that they would expect to confirm things by September.

    Fingers crossed that Dublin City Council are proactive this time rather than dismissive.

    Next May makes more sense as May is often quieter for events at Croke Park. We can't be stressing out the residents. Thing is the last time we had an announcement, it was 7 months in advance. If it's next May, we could get an announcement in October. It wouldn't surprise me if they make an announcement in September because if they want to put on extra dates, they have to follow the new procedures and consult the residents before any new dates are put on so it can make the whole concert procedure even longer.

    I get the feeling, that he has it in his mind to make these shows the only ones in Europe. Therefore, he has to have lots of dates, hence the problem with Croke Park limit. Perhaps they have decided to give him 5 dates in 2019, and won't book any other shows the rest of year.

    Does anyone think he would still play other Europe countries, if he's selling 400K tickets to Dublin? The 5 shows made sense in '14, when there were no other countries on itinerary. I hope he does a proper tour over there, but it's really up to him, and it sounds like he is still set on Croke Park.

    It's hard to say but I hope he does a full tour.

    That will be great for the people of Dublin. Four or five concerts next year.
