Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood to play Spokane Arena

KREM 2's Alexa Block talks about what happened last time Garth Brooks came to Spokane. And what is expected to happen at this upcoming concert.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- One of country music's favorite couples is set to play the Spokane Arena in November. 

For the first time in 19 years, the Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood will come to Spokane. The last time Brooks performed at the Spokane Arena was in 1998. He sold out five shows. 

The concert is the last stop on the tour for the Pacific Northwest region. 

Spokane Arena General Manager Matt Gibson said they have heard from a lot of excited fans since they announced their headliners. He said there is no doubt Brooks is a fan favorite. 

Gibson said when it comes to determining who are the most popular artists that have played at the arena it really depends on timing and the audience. For example people came out in droves to see the Eagles in 2015 and Fleetwood Mac a couple years before that.

"So all the legacy acts because they are nearing the end of their tour cycle are huge right now because everyone has this idea that you can't see them again," he said.

Brooks is a veteran county singer that has won the CMA Awards Entertainer of the Year title five times. He is also the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history with over 148 million albums sold. Brooks has had several top 10 hits, including "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)" and "Learn to Live Again." 

Yearwood, known for her songs "She's in Love with the Boy" and "Like We Never Had a Broken Heart," has also been active in the country music scene since the early 1990s. She has won three Grammy Awards, three CMA Awards, and an American Music Award. Yearwood is also a two-time New York Times best-selling author and hosts her own Food Network show. 

The concert will be Saturday, November 11 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 6 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets can only be purchased at SpokaneArena.com/Garth or 1-844-442-7842. Tickets start at $63.30 plus tax, facilities fees and service charges.
