Garth Brooks to perform in Philly for first time in nearly two decades

Country music singer Garth Brooks is coming to Philadelphia for the first time in a long time.

The news came Wednesday via Brooks' social media accounts and a press release on his website. Brooks will be performing with his wife Trisha Yearwood at the Wells Fargo Center in March, and tickets go on sale in early February.

Per the press release:

For the first time in 19 years, The Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood is coming to Philadelphia, PA. The tour is presented by Amazon Music Unlimited. The concert will be Saturday, March 25th, 7:00 PM at Wells Fargo Center.

Tickets will be on sale Friday, February 10th at 10:00 AM EST. Official tickets can ONLY be purchased at or 1-844-442-7842. Please note there will be an eight-ticket limit per purchase and no ticket sales at the venue box office on February 10th.

Tickets will cost $62.36 plus a $3.12 tax, a $4.00 facility fee and a $5.50 service charge for a total of $74.98. All seats sold are best available.

I, for one, am not a country music fan, so I turned to a friend of mine, also named Dan, who is currently a medical student in Philadelphia and is known for his taste in country music.

"I heard he is coming. He is good," Dan said via Facebook Messenger. However, he added, "I really don't listen to him."

There you have it. More information can be found here.
