The fifth stop on country superstar Garth Brooks' seven-date Dive Bar Tour comes Mon., Oct. 28 at an Ohio bar and town with the best possible names for a back-to-basics concert: The Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown.
Brooks' appearance in Portage County will be within an hour of Cleveland and slightly over an hour and a half from Pittsburgh, making it both a drastic departure from his stadium tour and a show accessible to city slickers.
As was the case with prior Dive Bar stops at Joe's on Weed Street in Chicago; Buck Owens' Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, Cal.; Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas and an Oct. 16 appearance in The Barn in Sanford, Fla., tickets to the special show, sponsored by Seagram's 7, are only available through local country radio stations.
Brooks teased the date earlier this week on his Inside Studio G web series while applauding the Buckeye State as a "number one fan club state."
The tour helps promote new single "Dive Bar," a duet with fellow Oklahoma-born country music superstar Blake Shelton.
Brooks' Ohio date comes the night after his wife Trisha Yearwood plays the KeyBank State Theatre in Cleveland's Playhouse Square.
