Garth Brooks reveals plans for world tour in 2014
On the heels of announcing a couple Las Vegas shows, country superstar Garth Brooks let it slip that he's returning to the tour trail in the New Year after more than a decade off the road.
The 51-year-old Oklahoma native acknowledged his plans for a 2014 world tour during an interview Monday morning (12/9) with Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America."
"It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring," Brooks said in the interview. "All my babies are fine with it. Ms. Yearwood is fine with it. So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music. I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Ms. Yearwood."
No word yet on dates or tour stops.
Brooks, who has sold more than 125 million albums to date, retired from recording new music and touring back in 2001, saying he wouldn't return until after his youngest of three daughters turned 18.
In 2009, Brooks signed on for a three-year residency at Wynn Las Vegas and since it's completion, he's returned to that stage on a few occasions. The multi-platinum musician will return to the Wynn stage for two consecutive nights right after the New Year (1/3-1/4).
