Garth Brooks cancels his upcoming stadium concert in Cincinnati

Garth Brooks just announced he is canceling the next 5 shows on his upcoming stadium tour which includes the September 18th concert at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. Garth released the following statement today:

“In July, I sincerely thought the pandemic was falling behind us. Now, watching this new wave, I realize we are still in the fight and I must do my part. I have asked the wonderful cities of Cincinnati and Charlotte to wait too long and I don’t want to now do that same thing to the great folks in Boston and Baltimore. As far as Nashville, we are looking for a make up date from the July rain out and though this is not COVID related, to make them wait makes me sad, as well. So, it is with a heavy heart we announce the decision to cancel all 5 shows but with a hopeful heart, we will reschedule and start over when this wave seems to be behind us,”
