Garth Brooks Is Taking His Dive Bar Tour to Massachusetts, New Jersey
Garth Brooks has added two more stops to his Dive Bar Tour. The country star will play small venues in Massachusetts and New Jersey in the coming weeks.
Brooks first announced his new Dive Bar Tour stops on Monday night (Nov. 4), during his weekly Facebook Live chat, Inside Studio G. Brooks will play in Massachusetts and New Jersey on the same night: at Foxborough's Six String Grill & Stage, and at Mt. Laurel Township's Prospectors Grille & Saloon, respectively, on Dec. 2, he revealed on Tuesday (Nov. 5). (During Inside Studio G, Brooks mentioned Pennsylvania as a Dive Bar Tour stop; Mt. Laurel is close to the Pennsylvania / New Jersey border.)
Fans have to win their way in to Brooks' Dive Bar Tour stops, by listening to local country radio stations. As the trek is sponsored by Seagram's and the shows take place in bars, all concertgoers must be 21 years of age or older.
Brooks began his Dive Bar Tour on July 15 in Chicago, Ill., then stopped in Bakersfield, Calif., one month later and New Branufels, Texas, in September. He also played in Sanford, Fla., and Rootstown, Ohio, in October. His Massachusetts and Pennsylvania stops will be his final Dive Bar Tour shows.
Brooks' Dive Bar Tour is in support of his new single, "Dive Bar," which is a duet with Blake Shelton. Brooks co-wrote "Dive Bar" with Mitch Rossell and Bryan Kennedy, and asked Shelton to be part of the track after seeing him perform on the 2019 ACM Awards in April. Brooks and Shelton previously worked together on The Voice back in 2016, when Brooks was an advisor during the TV singing competition's 11th season, and both men are Oklahoma natives.
In addition to his Dive Bar Tour, Brooks is currently on the road for his Stadium Tour.
