Garth Brooks Sets Live-Streaming Conference for July 10

Attention country music fans: Garth Brooks has announced a live-streaming press conference on his website for Thursday, July 10, at noon EST. 



USA Today’s Brain Mansfield notes that the cryptic “The wait is over ... 7/7” on the singer’s website sent music fans curiousity in to overdrive. And now they’ll have to wait a little longer. 

"Garth Brooks plans Thursday news conference" reports that Dublin recently denied a permit for three dates between July 25-29 at Croke Park. 



Since “Brooks has stated he wants to play all five concerts — or none of them,” the whole city tour may be in jeopardy.  And Dublin probably can’t afford the risk of no dates since it would lose 50 million Euros, or $68 million US dollars. Promoters and city officials are looking for alternative routes. 

If this is part of news, a tour will most certainly be a main, if not the only focus, of the press conference later this week.



Around 2000, Garth Brooks decided to set aside the World Touring while his daughters were still young enough to need a father around all the time.

So it was a shock to the Good Morning America audience when the country singer announced a World Tour in December of 2013. Kate Kindelan's "Garth Brook Announces World Tour on 'Good Morning America'" tells all about the appearance on the GMA blog.

Brooks showed up to promote "Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences.” “Blame It All” is an eight-disc set that not only includes his own hits, but covers of music that influenced him. There's also a DVD recording of his one-man Vegas show at the Wynn in the set.


Brooks told Robin Roberts, "Since it's you and since we've had a history forever, let's announce it. We're going on a world tour in 2014." He continued on by complimenting the anchor. "I can't believe I just did that but you are a doll."

Why this year?

"My children are off on their own so the guilt of not being there…I'm a phone call dad now." In fact, the father-of-three has a grandchild. He joked that the kids now called and said, "'Hey Dad, I love you, can I borrow some money?'"



Pretty common for empty nesters since he and wife, country singer Trisha Yearwood, will soon be on their own. "Our baby is a senior in high school."

Of course, he’s not the only one with a career.

Yearwood stars in her own Food Network show, “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,” and the 52-year-old singer occasionally appears. 


In the 2012 episode “Garth Brooks in the Kitchen,” the couple discusses how they’ve coped since his retirement and as the kids leave. “Eat like a dog night” is a family tradition where you put the face into a plate of spaghetti without a fork. Perfect for a family full of kids. 

Will the Emmy-winning show continue while they’re on tour? Fans hope so.

Brooks once told People’s Eileen Finan, “As for touring, if I can't eat it, sleep it, breathe it, then it ain't me” in “Garth Brooks Is Back.”  Touring’s a long, physical process for an artist.

He just hopes he won’t need a "wheelchair and walker” on the tour. Of course all those “Friends in Low Places” help carry him across the stage if that’s what it takes to get to watch the man tour for the first time in 14 years.
