Music Touring: Country Kills the Competition - Garth Brooks

Garth Brooks

Sept. 4, Allstate Arena, Rosemont, Ill., $65.50

On July 14, Brooks, country's all-time top ticket seller, revealed that Chicago would be the first stop of a three-year tour. In a risky (but confident) strategy, Brooks will announce each city 10 days before tickets go on sale.
