Chicago is the opening city of Garth’s upcoming tour, Garth has released the date and ticket information for the show.
His first tour in almost 20 years will kick off on Thursday, Sept. 4 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., 15 miles north of Chicago.
“As an entertainer, you get asked a lot, ‘What are the best cities to play?’” Brooks says in a press release. “Without hesitation, I rattle five or six of the best places to play and that list always includes Chicago. It is the perfect city to launch the world tour!”
Tickets will go on sale Friday, July 25 at 10AM CST. There will be a six ticket limit per purchase. Tickets will be available at www.ticketmaster.com, by calling 1-800-745-3000 or via Ticketmaster Express at 1-866-448-7849. There will be no sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets on July 25.
In keeping with Brooks’ stated intention to keep ticket prices low for the tour, tickets for Chicago will cost $56.94, plus $2.56 tax and a six dollar service charge, totaling $65.50.
Garth is expected to announce each city he is going to about 10 days before the show and might play up to 9 shows per city. This is a way to try and keep scalping prices down.

Something You Might Not Know About Me: I've been married to my wife Susan for over 24 years. She is a now runs her own business writing grants for non-profits in Michigan. My youngest son, Ben (19), had major brain surgery for seizures in Aug '05. He is completely recovered and is a sophmore at GVSU! My other son, Harry, is 21 wants to be a Naturalist/Vet goes to MCC.
My big life changing experience was a motorcycle accident during the Roofsit in Sept '06. It was humbling to have so many listeners praying for me during my 6 operations. I was off the air for 6 weeks and in a wheelchair for about 5-6 months. Since then I have experienced complete kidney failure and have been on dialysis for 2 years. Spring of 2010 I organized TEAM CONRAD for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. Our 1st Kidney Walks did over 100K-- WOW! I was blessed in Jan 2011 with a kidney transplant from listener/donor Kristin O'Leary from Grandville. I have so much to be thankful for... but especially for your thoughts & prayers.
