Garth Brooks Reveals Next 2019 Dive Bar Tour Step Will Be in Ohio
Brooks' Ohio Dive Bar Tour stop will take place at the Dusty Armadillo, in Rootstown, according to WLWT-TV, on Oct. 28. Brooks describes Ohio as "one of his No. 1 fan club states." Fans will need to win their way into the show via local country radio stations; as the show is in a bar and sponsored by Seagram's, concertgoers must be 21 years of age or older.
Brooks began his Dive Bar Tour on July 15 in Chicago, Ill., then stopped in Bakersfield, Calif., one month later, and New Branufels, Texas, in September. At the end of that month, he announced that his next tour date would take place in Sanford, Fla. That show will take place on Wednesday (Oct. 16).
In addition to the newly announced Ohio stop, Brooks is planning two more Dive Bar Tour dates. Details about those shows are yet to be announced, though Brooks did hint on Monday night's Inside Studio G that Pennsylvania, like Ohio, is a top fan club state. He noted that his Pennsylvania fans might be able to look forward to some good news soon.
Brooks' Dive Bar Tour is in support of his new single, "Dive Bar," which is a duet with Blake Shelton. Brooks co-wrote "Dive Bar" with Mitch Rossell and Bryan Kennedy, and asked Shelton to be part of the track after seeing him perform on the 2019 ACM Awards in April. Brooks and Shelton previously worked together on The Voice back in 2016, when Brooks was an advisor during the TV singing competition's 11th season, and both men are Oklahoma natives (Brooks is from Tulsa, while Shelton grew up about three hours south, in Tishomingo).
