Garth Brooks heads to Cincinnati … Madison Square Garden to host Billy Joel for the 37th straight show … Foo Fighters tack on two more European festivals
The Garth Brooks touring machine continues its glorious march through the U.S. The next lucky city to get a show is Cincinnati.
You already know the drill at this point. Garth and his wife Trisha Yearwood often wait for the first show to sell out before announcing additional dates, which means superfans should be ready to quickly snap up tickets, but more casual fans can rest assured there will probably be more dates coming.
Prior to the new gig, which is at U.S. Bank Arena on Jan. 28, Garth has three more cities on his routing, each getting three shows.
A recording of the megastar’s sold-out performance at Yankee Stadium earlier this year will be aired on all AT&T platforms tonight at 8:00 p.m. local time, as well as on ATT.com.
Garth recently signed a deal to make his music available on Amazon’s new streaming service.
Here is his full routing for the coming months:
Nov. 11 – Richmond, Va., Richmond Coliseum
Nov. 12 – Richmond, Va., Richmond Coliseum
Nov. 13 – Richmond, Va., Richmond Coliseum
Nov. 18 – Greenville, S.C., Bon Secours Wellness Arena
Nov. 19 – Greenville, S.C., Bon Secours Wellness Arena
Nov. 20 – Greenville, S.C., Bon Secours Wellness Arena
Dec. 8 – Honolulu, Hawaii, Neal S. Blaisdell Arena
Dec. 9 – Honolulu, Hawaii, Neal S. Blaisdell Arena
Dec. 10 – Honolulu, Hawaii, Neal S. Blaisdell Arena
Jan. 28 – Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S. Bank Arena
Tickets to Cincinnati go on sale Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. EST. Check out GarthBrooks.com for the latest on the man himself.
Billy Joel is continuing his residency at Madison Square Garden Arena with a staggering 37th show at the legendary venue.
The artist has been playing a show every month at the Garden since January 2014, and has sold 36 previous nights. The newest gig, his 83rd time playing the venue, will be on Jan. 11. A presale for it opens for Citi cardholders Nov. 14 and the general onsale kicks off Nov. 18.
Billy Joel will also be reopening the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island, New York April 5.

Europe is getting a heavy dose of Foo Fighters in 2017. The group had already previously announced an appearance at Portugal’s NOS Alive Festival, and now the band is also set to take on Spain’s Mad Cool Festival and Poland’s Open’er Festival.
Open’er is being held at Gdynia-Kosakowo Airport June 28-July 1 in Gdynia and is co-headlined by Radiohead. Mad Cool is being held July 6-8 at Caja Magica in Madrid and will also feature Green Day.
The Foos have had a quiet year after Dave famously broke his leg on tour and continued performing from his rock ‘n’ roll throne. They also trolled those speculating the band was breaking up earlier this year with a comedy video.
Tickets to both shows are available for purchase now. Head over to FooFighters.com for more on the rockers.
