Garth Brooks Books Free SXSW Concert, Tickets Are All Gone!

Fans of Garth Brooks who live in Austin, Texas are in for a treat as he is going to be performing a free concert at the 2017 SXSW Festival this weekend.

Tickets for the concert are already completely sold out, so hopefully you already got a ticket if you are hoping to attend!

During a keynote speech on Friday (March 17), Garth mentioned that he might do a surprise show this evening as well.

“I’m not really sure what all is going on,” he said (via USA Today). “I know I ate breakfast this morning so I’m ready to go however late we go.”

Garth Brooks Won't Play Inauguration Due to His Tour Schedule

Garth Brooks is speaking out to clarify why he won’t be performing at Donald Trump‘s presidential inauguration this week and it sounds like his absence is not due to any political reasons.

The 54-year-old country singer told fans in a Facebook Live broadcast that he can’t perform as he will be on tour in Cincinnati.

Garth explained that his friend Steve Wynn, who is organizing the entertainment portion of the inauguration, asked him to perform and he decided to wait and see if he would need to fill up his tour schedule with more shows due to demand. The demand was high, so he had to book more shows.

“We left it up to karma. If Cincinnati goes two weekends instead of one, then of course we are out. Sure enough, Cincinnati did five shows, two weekends and backed us up into there, so we got knocked out of it,” Garth said.

Garth‘s publicist confirmed to Reuters that he is in talks for the gig.

Garth has performed for the five living presidents,” the rep said. “While rumor has it that he has been asked to perform for President-elect Trump, he has not been able to commit yet.”

Earlier this month, Garth was asked by TMZ if he would perform at the inauguration if asked. You can watch the video below for his response.
