Garth Brooks Reveals Plans for a 7-Date “Dive Bar Tour”

In honor of National Dive Bar Day on July 7, Garth Brooks hosted a special Inside Studio G on Facebook Live to announce he’ll be embarking on a seven-date Dive Bar Tour this summer. The new trek takes its name from Garth current single, “Dive Bar,” which features Blake Shelton.

Garth’s first show will take place at Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago on July 15. Tickets for the concert will be available to win exclusively on two Chicago country radio stations: WUSN and WEBG. All ticket holders must be 21 and over.

Additionally, Jimmy Kimmel Live will air Garth’s performance of “Dive Bar” live from the Chicago show on July 15 on ABC at 10:35 p.m. CT.

“Sometimes, man, [a dive bar is] your church,” said Garth. “A church is people who are like you that are searching, and sometimes you need a shoulder to lean on. That’s what a dive bar is. That’s what a good one is anyway. We’re gonna go to seven of them. It’s gotta be Chicago.”

“Dive Bar” will be featured on Garth’s upcoming album, FUN. Penned by Garth, Mitch Rossell and Bryan Kennedy, “Dive Bar” was shipped to country radio on June 18, which is the only place you can hear it right now.

“It sounds fresh, and it sounds like summer to me,” Garth says. “Blake kept pushing for it to be more steels, more country and stuff. Blake was nothing short of fantastic.”

Garth and Blake will perform the single live for the first time during Garth’s Stadium Tour in Boise, Idaho, on July 19. Garth also revealed that he and Blake are shooting a music video for the new tune.
