Country star Garth Brooks decided to please his fans with a 3-year tour
Fans of country superstar Garth Brooks were ecstatic to hear that the artist was going on tour. For some, it would be their first chance to see him perform.
The 56-year-old announced plans for the tour at a press conference in Nashville. The North American tour will cover the United States and Canada.
The father of three hopes to visit between 10 and 12 cities each year over three years. He will start in 2019 with The Dome at America's Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Brooks gave few details about the tour. He mentioned another location as State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
It's a big undertaking for the country singer who reportedly admitted:
"People that know me know I'm scared to death of stadiums."
Initially, Garth said, "It was going to be a college tour, but because of the cities - how they worked out - there are going to be some professional stadiums in there as well."
On the name of the tour he joked:
"I wanted to call it the big-[expletive] stadium tour, but they voted me down on that one."
At the press conference, Garth revealed his efforts to cater specifically to his fans:
"This one is going to be so special, so rare, so far apart. Very individual. Very unique."
He told fans they should see the shows as "game days" and put on their team colors.
Brooks is one who loves to please his young fans especially. Earlier this month, he announced a free sound check event for Notre Dame students.
He made the announcement on his weekly Facebook live show "Inside Studio G." His wife Trisha Yearwood will join him and the two will conduct a Q&A session.
The show comes ahead of a major event to be held at the Notre Dame Stadium in Notre Dame Indiana on October 20.
The concert is the first of its kind and will be aired on CBS on December 2 at 8 p.m ET/PT.
Although Brooks doesn't particularly like the large stadiums, he is experienced in performing.
