Garth Brooks will wrap up his World Tour with Trisha Yearwood on December 16th at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. He announced the news yesterday (Wednesday, November 1st), where he also was part of a press conference at the Bridgestone during which Nashville Predators' CEO Sean Henry, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam unveiled a banner at Bridgestone to honor the singer for his flood relief efforts. It was seven years ago that Garth last performed at the Bridgestone, playing an unprecedented nine concerts to aid flood relief after Music City was devastated by the natural disaster in 2010.

Garth said: ["It was an effort by all of us. That's why I loved it. We just came and got to have fun, just play. (We) couldn't have been more out of shape and just had the best time, so coming back here, you compare them against those. That's gonna be tough, cause I tell anybody that was at the flood shows, 'You don't need to come to another Garth show,' cause it doesn't get better than that. The people showed up for the right reason. They all sang their butts off. It was the greatest thing. I'm gonna tell you, in an industry town you don't find that, and this place was nothing but love for nine straight shows. (It was) probably one of the greatest memories of my life so approaching 400 shows on this tour three years in and the fact of getting to come home to end it . . . I can't think of a better place."] SOUNDCUE (:49 OC: . . . a better place.)

Tickets for Garth's Bridgestone Arena concert will go on sale on November 10th at 10 a.m through Ticketmaster.
