Having been on tour across the world for almost three full years, this country legend reveals the end of his tour in North America is getting really close – and the moment is filled with emotions for him.
The Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood has been in full-swing for almost three full years, and has earned its own spot in the record books after selling more than 5.5 million tickets. He broke his own personal record of ticket sales in almost half as many cities as he’d done before – and that feat is something that melts his heart.
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood never expected their tour to do so well, or to have added as many extra performances as they have, but with each show they pour their hearts and soul into, it reminds them how blessed they are to have such wonderful fans.
“So when it’s all said and done and it’s January, it’s funny, what am I gonna miss? I’m gonna miss this. It’s the greatest way to spend your days,” Brooks tells NewsOK, wiping away tears. “The biggest tour of the ’90s was the tour that we were lucky enough to be on,” Brooks says. “This tour is dwarfing that.”
“I don’t know how it gets better than this. What the future is, I don’t know. Will we ever tour this hard again? I seriously doubt it. But you never say never, and God has blessed us. I never thought this tour would happen. I thought when we hung it up to raise the babies in 2000, I thought we were done then. So this has been a wonderful surprise, and I’m always up for those down the line.”
Both Brooks and Yearwood opened up about their amazement at how big this tour has grown and exactly how that has warmed their hearts in unbelievable ways.
The tour will come to a stop in North America with the final shows currently listed as July 29th and September 16th.
