Richmond gears up for Garth Brooks’ hotly anticipated return to city

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - For the first time in nearly 20 years, country music giant Garth Brooks is returning to Richmond.

"Oh, it's an exciting day for us to have a legendary artist like Garth Brooks come play our facility, it's exciting just to be a part of it," said Richmond Coliseum General Manager Dwight Johnson.

The concerts, which will also feature Trisha Yearwood, will be at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11 and Saturday, Nov. 12, 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13 at Richmond Coliseum.

Tickets for all three shows are now on sale, with an eight ticket limit per purchase.

The stop in Richmond is the first for Brooks in 19 years and is part of a three-year world tour with Yearwood.

"People have been more than pumped. It's been crazy since the Garth announcement first started happening, we've heard from people nonstop on Big 98.5," said country music radio station Big 98.5 FM Production Manager Dustin Fletcher.

Fletcher adds that if you want to see Garth, you better catch him this time around.

"This is probably going to be it for Garth, after this tour's over, for a little while. He's got the album out, this is a three-year world tour, so that will probably be exhausting, especially if you're doing four shows in one city."

Brooks is the No. 1 selling solo artist in U.S. history, with more than 137 million albums sold.
