Garth Brooks Plots Dive Bar Tour

Garth Brooks.

Superstar Garth Brooks is returning to the local dive bars for a seven-city run of concerts.

In honor of National Dive Bar Day, Brooks announced via his Inside Studio G series that he will play seven shows at local dive bars, beginning with a show in Chicago on July 15. He advised Chicago fans to listen to their local country station on Monday (July 8) for more information on the specific Chicago venue.

So far, only the Chicago show has been announced.

The Dive Bar Tour coincides with Brooks’ current single, “Dive Bar,” featuring Blake Shelton. Shelton is set to perform the collaboration as part of Brooks’ July 19 show at Albertson Stadium in Boise, Idaho.

Though Brooks did not officially mention any other cities or dates that are part of the Dive Bar Tour, he did mention that if he does play a Nashville dive bar as part of the trek, he hopes it will be Layla’s, the venue on Nashville’s Lower Broadway where he previously performed an invite-only show in February 2018 as part of the annual Country Radio Seminar.
