Garth Brooks had high hopes for his 2021 stadium tour. Fans showed they were ready too with a record breaking sell-out in Salt Lake City and the JAM PACKED show at the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days!

However, with the rise of COVID-19 and the Delta variant, Garth Brooks and his team had to make a very difficult decision. Today, a press release was published on the official Garth Brooks website outlining the sad news.

“In July, I sincerely thought the pandemic was falling behind us. Now, watching this new wave, I realize we are still in the fight and I must do my part. I have asked the wonderful cities of Cincinnati and Charlotte to wait too long and I don’t want to now do that same thing to the great folks in Boston and Baltimore. As far as Nashville, we are looking for a make up date from the July rain out and though this is not COVID related, to make them wait makes me sad, as well. So, it is with a heavy heart we announce the decision to cancel all 5 shows but with a hopeful heart, we will reschedule and start over when this wave seems to be behind us.”

Thankfully the press release wasn’t all bad news. All the tickets holders will get automatic refunds. Garth Brooks also added:  “I’m sincerely hoping we are back on tour before the year’s end.”
