Garth Brooks Will Live-Stream Press Conference on July 10
Last week, Garth Brooks posted a note on his website saying, “The wait is over… 7/7.”
The big news? Garth will hold a press conference to make another announcement. His website (now sporting a cool thunder/lightning Garth logo) lists all the details, saying fans can watch a live stream of the event, which will take place Thursday, July 10, at 12 p.m. ET.
There are a number of things Garth could be discussing, including his long-awaited world tour, which he revealed to Robin Roberts on Good Morning America in 2013. Outside of his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas and a handful of one-off shows in Nashville and other places, Garth hasn’t toured since he announced his retirement in 2001.
Garth may also want to talk about new music. In the last decade, the blockbuster artist has released a few anthology-type collections, including the eight-disc set Blame It All on My Roots, which appeared in November, but his last full-length original album was 2001’s Scarecrow.
Previously, Garth’s only upcoming live dates were a series of shows running July 25–29 at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland.
Those sold-out shows appear to be in doubt at present, however, because city officials have refused to grant licenses for two of the days. Speaking to the Irish Independent, concert promoter Peter Aiken noted he wasn’t sure if the remaining shows would continue as planned if Garth couldn’t play all five.
The parties are reportedly working on a solution for alternate dates.
