Garth Brooks cancels remainder of Stadium Tour
Ticketmaster will be refunding approximately 350,000 tickets
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – In July, the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour restarted and began the tour performing across the first 5 cities and entertaining over 300,000 fans including those in Lincoln. Today, Garth Brooks canceled the remaining 5 cities in the tour and is refunding approximately 350,000 tickets due to the Covid-19 wave spreading across the country.
For ticket holders, Ticketmaster will be issuing a refund to the original method of payment used at the time of purchase.
“In July, I sincerely thought the pandemic was falling behind us. Now, watching this new wave, I realize we are still in the fight and I must do my part. I have asked the wonderful cities of Cincinnati and Charlotte to wait too long and I don’t want to now do that same thing to the great folks in Boston and Baltimore. As far as Nashville, we are looking for a make-up date from the July rain out, and though this is not COVID related, to make them wait makes me sad, as well. So, it is with a heavy heart we announce the decision to cancel all 5 shows but with a hopeful heart, we will reschedule and start over when this wave seems to be behind us,” said Garth Brooks.
The 5 locations being canceled include Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, and the Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
Throughout the tour, Brooks said the look of joy on faces as live music has returned has made the “constant diligence” by the fans, band, crew, and stadium staff to maintain safety protocols worth it. A spokesperson for the tour said the team will continue to monitor the virus’ impact and watch how schools, sports, and other entertainment entities are handling this stage of the pandemic. They hope the tour can continue before the end of the year, but new concert dates will be sought in 2022.
