Garth Brooks chooses St. Louis to start 2019 North American stadium tour

ST. LOUIS, MO — One of country music’s biggest stars has chosen St. Louis as the city to start his 2019 North American stadium tour. Garth Brooks is coming to the Dome at America’s Center.  The second show on the tour will be in Glendale, Arizona.  He also thanked the Kraft Family in New England, saying that will give away the location of another show.  The rest of the shows and dates still have to be announced,

KICK FM reports that he also revealed during a press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame that there will be 30 stadiums played during the tour, with 10 to 12 a year.

The St. Louis show will be in the spring of next year. There are five cities on the tour on sale before Christmas.

“I can’t think of how much joy it brings me to say St. Louis. We were lucky enough to have multiple shows there in the comeback tour. It was just beautiful. Just night after night. A love fest. If there ever was a show, that as an artist, you would personally ask people to show up for; it would be St. Louis. That is going to start it all for us,” said Garth Brooks.

Brooks says that the 2019 tour will reflect his first ever tour. He wants to turn the entire arena into a honkey tonk. They are looking to entertain 100% of the crowd. The playlist will be a mix of old, new, and music from other artists.

Varnell Enterprises representatives say that all other details about the tour will be released at a later date.

Brooks announced that he will be playing Notre Dame this weekend.  He says that show is a blueprint for his 2019 Stadium Tour.
