Garth Brooks Will Be Ready to Resume Stadium Tour If the “Green Flag Does Drop in 2021”

Garth Brooks Will Be Ready to Resume Stadium Tour If the “Green Flag Does Drop in 2021”

Green flags in NASCAR signal the “end of a caution period,” allowing drivers to lay down the hammer.

If and when Garth Brooks gets the green flag to resume his pandemic-delayed Stadium Tour in 2021, the G-man says he’ll be ready.

Garth’s three sellout shows in Charlotte (May 2), Cincinnati (May 16) and Las Vegas (Aug. 22) are currently being rescheduled for 2021.

“We’ve got three sellouts that we know that we’ve got to go back and get,” said Garth during a virtual media scrum on July 29. “Four other stadiums we know we’ve got to go back and get. So if the green flag does drop in ’21, know that we’re twice as busy in ’21 than we planned to [be] just to make up the dates and keep the ones that we have.”

Garth’s Stadium Tour visited 10 cities in 2019: St. Louis, Glendale, Gainesville, Minneapolis (x2), Pittsburgh, Denver, Eugene, Boise (x2), Regina (x2) and Knoxville. Garth performed his only 2020 Stadium Tour show in Detroit on Feb. 22.

“This ‘not doing’ gets to you, man,” said Garth. “Do I want to play and do I want to see those faces? Yeah! I miss that dearly. But like everybody else, you do what you’re asked to do. That makes me sad, but at the same time, I respect that decision and hopefully do my job on this end so other people can be safe.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
