Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Member Garth Brooks Announces World Tour for 2014
December 10 2013
Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Member and country icon Garth Brooks announced that he is set to return to the road for a world tour in 2014. After months of speculation, and the release of his six-disc box set titled Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influence, he officially confirmed the tour with Robin Roberts of Good Morning America on December 9th.
“You know what, since it’s you and since we’ve had a history forever, let’s announce it. We’re going on a world tour in 2014,” Brooks told Roberts.
Brooks will first return to the Wynn in Las Vegas for two days of full-band shows in January 2014 (his resident headliner run at Encore Theater at the Wynn ended in 2012). “Wynn has allowed me to keep that room as a laboratory type of thing so I’m going to bring the band out there and let the band experience this room,” Brooks states.
No official tour dates have been announced.
