Garth Brooks adds Knoxville, Tennessee to his stadium tour

Oh yeah, I almost forgot that Garth Brooks is still releasing his tour schedule one town at a time.

Do you suppose he does it this way to help build excitement for every stop or is it a logistics thing because his show is so massive?


Anyway, this morning Garth announced that his stadium tour will be stopping in Knoxville, Tennessee on Saturday, November 16th, 2019, 7:00 PM in Neyland Stadium. It’s the first concert at Neyland Stadium in 16 years.

It will be in-the-round staging with tickets going on sale Friday, September 13th at 10:00 AM EDT / 9:00 AM CDT. There will be an eight ticket limit per purchase. There are only 3 ways to purchase tickets: at, on the Garth Brooks line at Ticketmaster at 1-877-654-2784, or through the Ticketmaster app on your phone. Please note there will be no ticket sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets on September 13th.

Tickets cost $94.95.

I was lucky enough to see Garth in Boise back in July, and my verdict is you really need to go to this show if you can. It’s amazing.

On top of all that, there were the persistent rumors that Ronnie and Kix didn’t care much for each other.
But alas there’s been a Christmas miracle! And it’s all thanks to Reba.
