Rumors of a Garth Brooks tour have been swirling for months, especially given that the singer recently released a box set of new music. The singer-songwriter confirmed to anchor Robin Roberts of Good Morning America that the long-awaited tour will indeed happen in 2014.
“You know what, 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,” Brooks told Roberts. “I can’t believe I just did that but you are a doll.” Brooks, 52, made the Good Morning America appearance to promote his six-disc collection Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences.
“It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring,” Brooks said of returning to touring. “All my babies are fine with it. Ms. Yearwood is fine with it. So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music. I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Ms. Yearwood. Our baby is a senior in high school,” he said. “My children are off on their own so the guilt of not being there…I’m a phone call dad now. ‘Hey Dad, I love you, can I borrow some money?’”
Brooks will first return to the Wynn in Las Vegas for two days of full-band shows in January 2014. “Wynn has allowed me to keep that room as a laboratory type of thing so I’m going to bring the band out there and let the band experience this room,” Brooks said.
No official tour dates have been announced. Watch Brooks make the announcement below.
