GARTH BROOKS REVEALS 2014 TOUR PLANS
Garth Brooks has announced he will embark on a world tour in 2014. The country music icon unexpectedly broke the exciting news on Good Morning America on Monday (12/9). Since 2009, Garth has been performing intimate acoustic shows at the Wynn in Las Vegas. While he’s enjoyed the run in Sin City, he says playing with a full band is what he loves to do most. (Cut #1) “The thing that I really love when people go, you know, I love your Vegas show so much because it’s just you and a guitar and that’s my favorite way to see you. My thing is always, ‘Thank you, but that’s nowhere near my favorite show.” No dates or tour name has been revealed for the tour, yet. This will be Garth’s first tour in more than a decade.
BILLY CURRINGTON TO HEADLINE TOUR IN 2014
Billy Currington has announced his We Are Tonight Tour, launching in the spring of 2014 with Brett Eldredge and Chase Rice. After opening for acts like Kenny Chesneyin the past, Billy believes he’s learned a lot from some of his fellow artists when it comes to touring. He recently told us about his pre-show ritual. “Always before I walk on stage I talk to the band, ‘Is there anything I can do better?’ ‘Is the set list good for everybody?’ ‘Cause that’s a lot of people there. They’re gonna either walk away saying you were great or you sucked. [laughs]” The We Are Tonight Tour kicks off March 6th in Tulsa, Oklahoma and runs through May.
