    Garth Brooks 2019 Tour

    So, what I think it will be...

    Wont be a huge tour as he said.

    Iconic College Stadiums in the USA, spread out.

    The odd festival in the USA.

    I will think he will do concerts in Canada.

    I think he will do concerts in Ireland.

    No chance that he will do concerts in other European countries or Australia
    or New Zealand.

    I think though he will say he wants to play here and there in Europe, but it will just
    be talk unfortunately.

    The concerts itself??? Maybe slightly different.

    Just my guesses really.

    I don't see why she would just announce an Irish tour and not other countries as well. Or does she follow Garth's rules as well where she announces cities one at a time?

    I think it's more likely to be something for ND or she could be heading over here for Country 2 Country.

    Country 2 Country should be announced soon alright. They normally announce things around October.

    Half way through October and it's looking less likely that he will be coming back to Ireland anytime soon. Having a concert in May makes sense for Croke Park. May is often a quite time for events. It may be less stress on the residents but then they can use the excuse of kids not being able to get to and from school with the lockdown that happens. It could still happen in June or July but highly unlikely when he hasn't even tried to get back this year when it was quite for him and he has the use of all the stadiums around the country.

    Guess I can give up on the hope not anything next year. Unless I make a trip over to America again.

    Ya never know, he might make it to Ireland in 2019. Ya gotta have hope.

    I wouldn't hold your breath either... his seeming blueprint for this tour seems to include college/pro stadiums (more college than pro)... I'd love to be wrong though- would be interesting to see him over across the pond again for fans there

    A Band that I am a die hard follower of is Dave Matthews Band. Generally when they release an album, they do 2-3 weeks of shows in Europe. Well, they just released an album in the U.S., and it's European release is next month. There are already rumors that they will have some overseas dates sometime in Feb/March of 2019. It will be their 3rd trip in the past 9 years.

    Now, DMB definitely has a following and fans in Europe, but seriously....they're not at all well known. They'll do a full Summer schedule in the U.S. every year, but only a couple of weeks every few years in Europe. Nonetheless, they still do it.

    I'm sorry, but it just goes to show that Garth does not care, and he's pretty pathetic with his whole "for the fans" talking point. Really? You can't throw even 1 bone for the couple of fans in Europe? I know you have "The Fever" from Planet Garth, and then 1 or 2 other fans willing to see you perform.

    I love how Americans are so believing when they are fed lines of utter BS. Perhaps Garth thinks Europeans and the Irish are same way. He will ONLY play 5 shows, because otherwise some of the fans who bought tickets to the 2 shows that would have been cancelled, would feel slighted. So, as an alternative, the only fair thing to do is do ZERO shows, so EVERY FAN will feel slighted. The reason it sounds so illogical, is because it is.

    Point is, if a very popular American group like DMB, that have very limited popularity in Europe, can still find a couple of weeks every few years to play some shows, I think an act like Garth, who has to be at least as popular, if not more, could afford to do some dates once every 20 years. Instead he would rather everyone buy into his SPIN about how difficult and costly it is to play overseas, when all it takes is one look at all the U.S. acts that do shows there, to know it's BS.

    BTW, this one performer, who I'm sure Garth has never heard of before, Billy Joel, just announced a show at Wembley Stadium for next June. And it's been literally ages....or rather 3 whole years, since his last appearance at the stadium. But I guess Billy has it more together than Garth, and can find a way to make the UK concert economically viable, and still not go broke.

    First Croke Park concert for next year has been announced, there's a second date booked as well.

    Leaves one more night free and based on this year they actually had more events than three, so he can have two nights anyway. Anymore and I think the residents might make a fuss. But we have other places to play as well. We have a brand new stadium in Cork.

    Based on what he said today, there's more cities going on sale before Christmas but how likely will it be in Ireland?

    How likely? let's be honest (take it or leave it, for better or worse, it is what it is....) Not likely at all. Garth's not coming back to Ireland or Europe any time soon.

    would LOVE to be wrong about that, actually, for multiple reasons, but its not likely to happen

    Sorry I dont think he is, and I think there is ZERO change that he is going to tour outside North America.

    If he was thinking about going to Ireland he would've announced it today.

    For the first time in a long long time, he has been using the phrase "NORTH AMERICA TOUR " Im also sure most
    those Journos wouldve gotten a headsup, and there was zero questions about overseas dates.

    Its a far call to make that Garth Brooks will NEVER tour outside North America again.

    Garth should learn not to talk about things before they are a done deal. Like going to Europe or Australia after the 3 year Comeback Tour. Doesn't he understand how many people he hugely disappoints this way?!

    If Garth wanted to play outside North America, he would. HE DOESN'T WANT TO!

    I think this 3 Year "North American" Tour should finally put that 100% to rest.

    I used to think there was truth to all his posturing and hemming and hawing about wanting to play places like Ireland, Australia or other European countries. There isn't.

    The fact a band I'm sure most Europeans has not heard of, and that I follow, Dave Matthews Band, can do a few weeks every several years over there, with no difficult whatsoever, is indication enough that if he wanted to, Garth could do the same.

    I stood up for Garth when the Croke Park shows had to be cancelled, even though I had tickets and hotel booked, and planned on attending 3 of them. But it really was all smoke and mirrors. It never seemed to be completely about having to cancel the shows for the financial impact on "Garth, Inc.," but now I can see that it 100% was. The whole "unfair to the fans," BS was clearly just that. Before he goes spewing that again, and how badly he desperately wants to find a way to do shows outside the U.S., he should open his eyes and look at the countless # of U.S. artists who manage to figure out a way to get through the millions of obstacles they must face, to somehow do shows in places like Ireland, the U.K. or Italy, among others.

    Another week and October will be over. I really thought we might get something next year but the only time he could possibly play at Croke Park would be in May. There's already a concert in early July and if they put on too much concerts close together it will just give the residents an excuse to go all out again.

    There is zero chance of anything happening next year. They would want to get announcing things now if there was something happening.

    I'm really disappointed that he's not even making an effort. And we all know how he's going to go next year, "because one night turns into two, we have to put off from going anywhere outside of America".

    I really don't want to feed into the negativity (and I'm going to do my best to make it a habit not to, when this garth in Europe thing has really been played to death- we get the frustration.. it's been shared in various ways) but I gotta respond..

    Thats an issue with the local citizenry/people of Ireland.. I think it's a rather asinine kind of limitation to put on shows, etc. I'm sure there are reasons, but it's just something I dont' totally get... That whole debacle with the Ireland shows I think did a bigger number on Garth than he's let on- Thing is, I don't totally blame him. It's the town's fault IMO..

    There is zero chance of anything happening next year. They would want to get announcing things now if there was something happening.
    think positive. maybe there isn't a chance.. maybe there is. unless you totally know the future, ANYTHING is technically possible.. probable may be a diff. story, but anything is POSSIBLE

    I'm really disappointed that he's not even making an effort. And we all know how he's going to go next year, "because one night turns into two, we have to put off from going anywhere outside of America".
    Ya know, you're really negative here.. If you've listened to/read/watched any of the coverage/articles about this updating tour etc.. it's not going to play out like that. Garth's going to (sounds like) do one show.. one city at a time, each one being an 'event'. not multiple dates in each city. could that change? sure.. is it likely? I doubt it, not when TY will be announcing tour, etc.. as for Garth not making an effort? you dont' know that as a fact. He may not seem to be making the efforts that some in the fanbase would want him to make, but unless you're in the know with his 'team' as it were.. . thats speculation and opinion only..

    try to be positive about it. Garth was gone for so long and has come back... enjoy more of the 2nd stage of the comeback rather than dwell on the negative.. (a lesson I should have learned somewhat in the past 15 years myself honestly)

    While it's not beyond Any doubt, it is absolutely beyond a Reasonable doubt. If it were a case of very few American artists performing outside the U.S., then that would be one thing. If it were a situation where he was so preoccupied with playing every last U.S. city before going elsewhere, that's another thing. CLEARLY neither of those apply here. And his excuse about it being cost prohibitive is EMPTY RHETORIC. Unless you believe that his management are incompetent and unable to get any overseas deals done.

    That leaves the inescapable truth. That he plain isn't interested in building, let alone maintaining his European fan base. Because touring is what artists do to accomplish that.

    . That's still speculation and opinion. the evidence YOU see shows you that (even if the lens is tainted towards doubt. that's not nec. a bad thing, but a factor ..

    If it were a case of very few American artists performing outside the U.S., then that would be one thing. If it were a situation where he was so preoccupied with playing every last U.S. city before going elsewhere, that's another thing.
    Not to beat a dead horse here, but again.. Garth isn't 'other artists' and viewing how he should run his career/do things based off of how other artists do their thing.. not a good comparison.. As for a preoccupation w/ playing every last city.. I'd wager that's false too, based on the evidence shown.. The format of the tour- not lending itself to playing every last city. The fact that there's only 10-12 shows per year planned at moment (acc. to Garth himself..)


    CLEARLY neither of those apply here. And his excuse about it being cost prohibitive is EMPTY RHETORIC. Unless you believe that his management are incompetent and unable to get any overseas deals done.
    has he been quoted as saying it was cost prohibitive to do so? If so I've missed the article can you provide links/source material for this?

    That leaves the inescapable truth. That he plain isn't interested in building, let alone maintaining his European fan base. Because touring is what artists do to accomplish that.
    Not at all. What is left by the evidence is that Garth hasn't done it YET. doesn't mean that it's not going to happen.. (it's a growth vs a fixed mindset thing really.. either "it's NOT" or "it hasn't happened yet".. be positive..)

    ---------

    What I see (myself, this isn't factual, this is opinion..) is that the anger at not touring yet, the disappointment in not coming over to Europe, etc. so far has clouded some fans' lens of the actual facts.. The EVIDENCE that has come from Garth's mouth/team so far doesn't rule out a tour for the future. I agree, it's prob. not at least for 3 years. That doesn't' mean it's a NEVER though...

    With TY running a tour, that MAY have an effect.. if they're going to be working on sep. tours but still spending time together there is juggling of schedules to contend with. Garth's essentially said that she gave him her time, he needs to give her his time.. That may... MAY be a contributing factor...

    Garth may have been more seriously offended by the Ireland debacle than he let on. that's possible too......

    I guess what it boils down to is that no one REALLY knows if he'll be coming to Europe. Why not flood the ask Garth's with questions about it? maybe he'll answer...

    just an idea..

    just an idea..
    When I brought up playing every last city, I was referring to his excuse from the last tour, where he said that they wanted to finish playing all the U.S. cities, and the tour ended up going longer than anticipated. I wasn't referring to the upcoming stadium tour. And it's completely fair to compare Garth with other artists of similar stature. Saying, "well, he's Garth, and he's his own man," is pretty sad. If that's the case, then I guess being Garth, means not wanting to perform outside of North America. Not, "we HOPE to someday get around to playing outside the U.S."

    I am certain that one of his initial answers to the "Why won't you perform outside the U.S.?" questions, was that it was financially difficult to make it work. Then he floated the idea of doing festivals, which became a big topic of discussion here, but obviously was another load of BS, since he never followed through. Think about it, he couldn't even get his butt over to play a couple of the many European Summer festivals, where he would not even be responsible for the costs of transporting staging, lighting, etc.

    It's nice to live in the world of "it may someday happen," but I prefer reality. If I wanted false promises and platitudes, I'd listen to Drumpf. Sure, someday I might win the Mega Millions jackpot, and just because I haven't yet, doesn't mean it won't happen in the future. But I'm not quitting my day job in anticipation of it.

    If he gets way down here in three years time, then cool, if he doesnt then thats okay.

    If he doesnt intend to come, I just hope he doesnt say American "LEG" of the tour, during the stadium tour because
    that 100% leaves the impression that he intends to tour outside the USA.

    I will say- I somewhat agree w/ you- saying "American leg" does mean that he seems to be thinking about touring outside the USA.. That COULD mean Canada though. or Brazil . or anywhere really.. but yeah- it WOULD be nice to see a broader tour. think of all the soccer stadiums that COULD be played thoguh. IF Garth is focusing largely on colleges through this part though (and we really don't know totally for sure yet if that's the case as the first 2 announced are pro stadiums and the other 2 "talked about" sort of on inside studio G/the press conference are pro (Dallas and New England..). IF garth goes more college route- maybe it doesn't bode well for overseas. but if he hits pro stadiums? there are lots of places to play.. doesn't HAVE to follow route(s) or places he played before.. just sayin..

    The simple question would be, "is this strictly a North American Tour, or might you be playing some Stadiums overseas?"

    The answer is either "Yes, North America Only." Or "No, there might be some shows outside North America."

    I still think it's unlikely, only because I feel like it would have been next on his "to do" list, and instead that appears to be playing U.S. Stadiums.
