Garth Brooks: ‘The Wait Is Over’
Garth Brooks says "the wait is over," but what does it mean? The superstar teased a big announcement on his website this week, leaving many to speculate that he'll announce a full-scale comeback.
Brooks is expected to share more details on Monday (July 7). Last December, during an appearance on 'Good Morning America,' the country icon revealed he would tour in 2014. However, all that's been announced thus far are five dates in Dublin, Ireland scheduled for later this month.
It's been 13 years since the 'Friends in Low Places' singer retired to focus on his kids. He said all along that he'd return after his youngest daughter graduated from high school. Allie graduated this year, and Brooks has made it clear he's itching to return to the stage.
"All my babies are fine with it, Miss Yearwood is fine with it," Brooks said at the time. "So now I get to do what I love to do -- play music -- I get to be with the person I want to be with -- which is Miss Yearwood -- and my children are off on their own.”
Any tour dates the 52-year-old announces are sure to sell out quickly. Fans lined up early to grab all 80,000 tickets for each of the five Ireland shows.
