Where to See Garth Brooks in Concert First in 2014 Tour
Today is the day for Andy Roberts of Gainesville, Georgia to decide what he wants to do with the 2014 Tour dates Garth Brooks promised to announce to him via phone call.
Andy Roberts got the surprise of his life back in January, when he and a friend went to Brooks' concert in Las Vegas. He was one of several audience members picked by the singer to ask a question, and he asked what the first location of Brooks' upcoming tour would be.
Brooks told him that he couldn't say just yet, but promised Roberts would be the first to know. The Brook's management team got Roberts' telephone number that night, but months went by and nothing happened. Until July 10, when Brooks held a press conference and said he'd be announcing his first tour date on Monday, July 14 with a phone call to "Andy from Atlanta."
"I had no clue he was going to do it," Roberts said. "My phone hasn't stopped ringing since."
Roberts has been a fan of Garth Brooks since middle school, but had never attended a concert before the one in January in Las Vegas.
He said he plans to attend the first date of Brooks' world tour with his wife if it's somewhere in the United States, but the only catch is, she's pregnant with their third child, so it will depend on the timing of the upcoming tour.
Garth Brooks says he's setting out to top himself with his new presentation.
Garth said, “I want people walking out of these arenas going, ‘Best show I’ve ever seen. That thumped harder than any rap show I’ve been to. It was louder. It was more chaotic. It was just stupid.’ That’s what I want to hear.”
Garth will be bringing his wife, Trisha Yearwood, along to perform on the world tour.
On Monday, July 14, 2014 when Andy Roberts got the phone call from Garth Brooks, he decided to announce the tour dates to everyone before Garth Brooks makes the official announcement on Tuesday, July 15.
