Brooks, who took a 14-year hiatus from music to be with his family is now back on a blockbuster world tour. Before his hiatus, Brooks was one of the most popular musicians of all-time. In fact, in May 2014, he surpassed the Beatles with total number of diamond releases (albums that sold 10 million copies). Brooks has had seven albums make that notable achievement, his most recent being 2007's "The Ultimate Hits." More amazingly, Garth is still selling out arenas without appearing on any well-known streaming services. His discography spans ten studio albums, which will give plenty of material from him to choose from in his sets.
Brooks and his signature cowboy hat returned to touring in 2014. His absence was felt by many, as he has had one of the top ten selling tours in 2016, even ahead of Beatle Paul McCartney. The absence has been especially felt in Cincinnati, as Brooks has not played in the Queen City in 20 years. With these five shows, Brooks fans from all over the tri-state area will be converging at U.S. Bank Arena to see a modern day legend in action.
These shows will all start at 7 pm on Saturday, January 21, Sunday, January 22nd, Friday, January 27th, Saturday, January 28th, and Sunday, January 29th. The wide number of shows should allow Brooks fans to ensure they see him play some of his best-loved songs, from "Friends in Low Places" to "The Dance" and "Thunder Rolls."
Also part of the show will be Brooks wife, country singer Trisha Yearwood. Married to Brooks since 2005, Yearwood is a powerful country singer with her own storied carrier. Her performance will be another great treat for fans of Brooks' music.
With these five shows at U.S. Bank Arena, it is clear just how in demand a Garth Brooks concert is. For fans in Cincinnati and all around the tri-state area, this is a moment people have been waiting years for. Whether they go to the first, second, or all five shows, this will be a way for music fans to start 2017 in a truly memorable fashion. Most performances are available, but some tickets may still be available at ticketmaster.com.
