Country legend, Garth Brooks pulled the plug Wednesday on the remaining stops on his stadium tour due to the recent rising of COVID-19 cases across the country.
The 5 upcoming stadium shows at football stadiums in Baltimore, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Nashville and Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Garth said of the canceled stops, “In July, I sincerely thought the pandemic was falling behind us. Now, watching this new wave, I realize we are still in the fight and I must do my part.”
It’s an about-face for Garth … as we reported, just last month he played in front of a packed house of 68,000 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Ticketmaster says it will refund all tickets and Garth says he’s hopeful the shows can be rescheduled “when this wave seems to be behind us.”
While its been reported that Garth and his band and tour crew are vaccinated, he previously said he would not require concertgoers to be vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The stadium shows were expected to follow local COVID protocols.
While Garth’s canceling a swath of stadium shows and passing on all the cash that comes with it, it’s interesting to note there’s still a big concert going down this weekend in New York City.
