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.”

Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For COVID – but “On Her Way Out of the Tunnel” Now

Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For COVID – but “On Her Way Out of the Tunnel” Now

A couple of weeks ago Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood announced they were going into quarantine because one of their team members tested positive for COVID.

As fans expected to the see the super star couple resume their public events, news comes that their isolation will last a bit longer as Trisha has now also tested positive. Garth is testing negative as of now.

Speaking on the matter, Garth says “The Queen and I have now tested twice.” In regards to Trisha’s diagnosis, Garth shares, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”

The snow and ice storm that the Nashville area experienced last week prevented the couple from getting tested until almost a week after their initial exposure; once they did, they continued to quarantine together.

Garth shared “Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together, and anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.” Garth fully admits, “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me.”

Garth says, though he welcomes any prayers and good thoughts anyone wants to send Trisha’s way. “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing. Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan,” Garth continues. “We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
