I am an Illinois native, born and raised from just outside of Chicago, (Rockford), my cousin called me yesterday from home and asked if I wanted to go see Garth Brooks on September 4th which was his announced first date on his tour.  I almost changed my plane ticket home, but glad I didn’t because each show that kept getting added sold out in MINUTES at the Allstate Arena, (for us locals it will always be the Rosemont Horizon). In all, Garth has sold out TEN scheduled shows there.  The dates start September 4th and run through the 14th, with two shows scheduled on Saturday, September 6th  September 12 (two shows), 13 (two shows) and 14. Garth hasn’t played the Allstate Arena in 17 years.  The last time Garth had a multi night run in Chicago like this was in 1993 for his ‘In Pieces’ tour.  I was lucky enough to get tickets to one of those shows.

I just got my ticket for the 1030 pm show on September 12th! Sweet home Chicago!

Be on the lookout for more cities to be announced from Garth Brooks.  It looks like he will take up residency in each city for multiple dates in each city!
