Garth Brooks Announces Memphis World Tour Stop
Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood — his special guest at all World Tour stops — will perform at Memphis' FedEx Forum on Feb. 2 at 7:30PM; Feb. 3 at 7PM; and Feb. 4 at 3PM and 7:30PM. A press release notes that Brooks' Memphis concert will be his final World Tour stop for Arkansas and Mississippi (Memphis is near Tennessee's border with both states), though not necessarily his final stop in Tennessee itself. The singer has yet to play Nashville on his World Tour.
Tickets for Brooks' Memphis shows will go on sale on Dec. 2 at 10AM CT, with a limit of eight tickets per purchase in effect. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or 1-866-448-7849. They will cost $60.55, plus a $6.18 tax, a $2 facility fee and a $6.25 service charge, for a total of $74.98.
Brooks’ World Tour is on hiatus until late January; following this break for the holidays, Brooks will perform in Cincinnati, Ohio. However, Brooks and Yearwood do have three unplugged concerts in Hawaii scheduled in December, as part of the 75th Commemoration of the Attack on Pearl Harbor. The singer has said previously that he will wrap up the North American leg of his World Tour, which began in Chicago, Ill., in 2014, next year, then look at touring overseas.
The newly crowned CMA Entertainer of the Year, Brooks released The Ultimate Collection, a new box set, on Nov. 11; the project includes nine discs of music from Brooks’ catalog, as well as some previously unreleased songs, and the 10th disc is an exclusive version of Brooks’ new album, Gunslinger, featuring Target-only bonus tracks. Also on Nov. 11, Brooks and Yearwood released a holiday duets record; Gunslinger, meanwhile, is set for a wide release on Friday (Nov. 25).
