Garth Brooks' fans have been waiting for an announcement that would happen on 7/7, which was yesterday, but to their disappointment it looks like they will be waiting until Thursday, when Brooks says he will hold a streaming press conference to let it all out of the bag. Speculation is still that he's announcing dates for a World Tour sometime this year. The press conference will play out at 12 PM ET at www.garthbrooks.com.
Meanwhile, Garth released a statement over the weekend about the two canceled Dublin, Ireland concerts saying, "I have faith that [the] Dublin City Council will make the best decision for the people of Ireland. For us, it is five shows or none at all. To choose which shows to do and which shows not to do, would be like asking to choose one child over another." City chiefs held an emergency meeting and even attempted to rebook the two canceled shows at another location – a move promoters say is logistically impossible since staging and lights were designed for the dimensions at Croke Park.
Blake Shelton often tells his story in tweets when he's blasting the tabloids for all the fiction they tell about he and his wife Miranda Lambert and when things are good, Blake also shares via Twitter. Such was the case yesterday when Shelton tweeted out, "Finishing up my last album in the next couple weeks." Not sure what he means by "last" but I'm sure he's only getting started when it comes to rolling out new music to fans. No word on when the new project is set for release.
