    Garth Brooks 25th Annivesary of his world tour

    Well this month marks the 25th Anniversary of Garth Brooks's first and only world tour.

    25 years ago he left North America for the first time, and started what would become his only
    world tour the tour saw hi play in Ireland, England Switzerland, Germany, Norway, The Netherlands,
    Sweden, Scotland, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand.

    It was a fun time for all, thought the 25th Anniversary deserved a mentioned.

    This month marks the 25th Anniversary of Garth
    Brooks first and only world tour.

    In 1994 Garth Brooks left North America for the
    first time and took his show to Ireland, Scotland,
    England, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland,
    Spain, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

    Apart from Ireland in 1997 he would never return.

    Two charity concerts in Brazil in 1998 and 2015 is
    Garth's total experience of taking his concerts outside
    North America.

    I was lucky enough to be at his New Zealand show in
    1994, myself and my sister had tickets for Block G at
    the Auckland Supertop as they opened the gates we
    all rushed in, I went straight to the first row in Block
    G to see my sister screaming at me, she had gone straight
    up to the front, so I followed and my first Garth Brooks
    concert, was in the first row.

    The show was the best concert of my lifetime, a short show,
    75 Minutes , 16 song set totally blew away any event I had
    seen before or after.

    I ended up seeing Garth again in Phoenix in 1996 and his one
    man show at the Wyn in 2010. But it was his New Zealand show
    that stood out for me in 1994 as the best.

    Garth Brooks is great at recognizing acheivements thruout his
    career, his 1994 World Tour is now 25 years old, and it almost
    could be considered a crime against music that he hasnt been
    able to make it back to tour anywhere outside North America
    since 1994.

    Things have stood in Garth's way, his 1996-1998 USA and
    Canadian tour, which was suppose to include the rest of the world,
    didnt because he sold out too many arenas. He did make it to
    Croke park for three special concerts in 1997.

    Retirement then took him out of touring until 2014, his comeback
    in Ireland got cancelled, then another arena tour of the USA/Canada
    went longer than expected, and it was history repeating itself, the
    world tour got cancelled.

    Garth didnt tour in 2018, so 2019, the big 25th Anniversary of
    the World tour may of had Garth's international fans excited, but
    alas, Garth decided to do a Stadium tour of the USA and Canada
    instead. The Stadium tour is expected to last three years.

    So Garth's International fans miss out again.

    It's a shame that America's biggest ever artist and America's
    best ever artist has only done one world tour ever. (I don't count
    three shows in Ireland in 1997 and two charity performances in
    Brazil as a world tour)

    Garth has recently released a vinyl set called Legacy, and Garth has
    a legacy he can be proud of. But when he finally does slip into retirement
    from touring for good, (He has stated after the stadium tour he will
    only play small honky tonks in the USA) to have only done that
    one Tour outside North America, kinda makes Garth just an
    America artist and that is unfair to the man.

    For Garth Brooks to have a complete Legacy, to have closure on
    his wonderful career, he needs to not only get back to those countries
    he played in, in 1994 but go elsewhere, do some shows in Japan,
    France, Russia even. The crowds may not be as big or even as
    loud, but for a artist of Garth stature, when you look back in two
    decades time, for him to have only one world tour, will do him a disservice,
    so fingers are crossed that he has a change of heart, updates his passport
    and plays some shows, then he can truly say, he's done another world
    tour.

    Time will tell.

    he was asked on Studio G, and said after the stadium tour he wants to go back to
    where it all started and play the honky tonks.

    I'll have to look at hte specific inside studio G (do you happen to know when it happened Brett?) but I VAGUELY remember him talking about it- but it wasn't in the vein of "he has stated that after the stadium tour he will only play small honky tonks in the USA.." I'm calling shenanigans on that..

    to me it was more of a response to a question in a 'what if'... type of vein...

    He didnt give an actually statement. But he did say he would like to go back to where it all started.

    I mean he wont go back to arenas after the stadium tour, and he wont do another stadium tour, he will be hitting 60, so
    I guess that will make sense to come full circle.

    also true, but that does go directly against your statement of:

    it does make sense to an extent, but how can you say for certain that he won't? heck, KISS is still touring (granted on their 'last' tour.. and they're older) the stones still tour (currently postponed due to heart valve surgery..) no reason Garth can't still tour if he wants to.. we don't know for certain that he won't..
