UPDATE: Since this story was published, Garth Brooks has added five additional shows to the two already announced for the Dallas leg of his tour: September 17 at 7:30 pm; September 18 at 7 and 10:30 pm; September 19 at 7 and 10:30 pm; September 20 at 7:30 pm; and September 22 at 7:30 pm.


Pop-country crooner Garth Brooks has finally announced the dates for his World Tour stop in Dallas: September 18-19 at American Airlines Center. This marks the first time Brooks has played in Dallas in 17 years, although Garth followers will recall that he was in Arlington in April for the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony at AT&T Stadium.

He also played a four-night eight-show run in Houston, in late June and early July.

Brooks kicked off the tour in Chicago in September 2014, with his wife Trisha Yearwood as special guest. He released his latest album, Man Against Machine, in November. Rather than take the traditional, time-tested route of releasing an entire tour schedule, Brooks has been dribbled out the individual tour dates city by city. So unconventional.

Brooks and Yearwood most recently performed in New Orleans on July 12, and they have not announced any additional tour stops for the interim, so the Dallas dates represent a kind of summer vacation or second leg.

Both of his Dallas shows will begin at 7 pm. Tickets start at the silly price of $74.98 and go on sale Friday, July 24, at 10 am. For information, call Ticketmaster at 866-448-7849.
