Garth Brooks may be leading us on with this whole "Oh-shoot-I-just-let-another-integral-part-of-my-2014-plans-slip-on-national-television" shenanigan. The country star let another piece of the puzzle "slip" during his tour of the talk show circuit when he was on The Talk. The good news is that one part of the announcement process isn't a charade: the fact that a tour is totally going to happen.
Brooks was guesting on The Talk on Wednesday when he told his hosts that the recently announced 2014 world tour would span a three-year period.
"The whole goal in life is to make whatever you've done before look small," he said. "So, the 2014 world tour will be the first of probably a three-year world tour. I'm excited. I'm very excited."
The announcement certainly cleared up a few of the confusing elements regarding Monday's declaration to Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. A world tour following a domestic tour will fit a lot better within a three-year period than a one-year one.
Still, no dates have been announced, formally or otherwise. Brooks told both shows that more official statements would be coming as soon as this week, but would be delivered via radio. No word yet either on who will be opening for Brooks, but we know that at least his wife, fellow country star Trisha Yearwood, will be along for the ride, based on the performer's statements that he planned on spending time with "Ms. Yearwood." For a big name like his, expect a fairly big opener, or a series of smaller, but still noteworthy openers.
