Country fans in Cincinnati have one shot to see superstar Garth Brooks on his new concert tour.

Brooks announced Wednesday that he would perform at Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium on Saturday, May 14. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 11.

The performance will be Brooks' first at the stadium and his only stop in Ohio or Kentucky. The concert will be "in the round," Brooks' website says, which means the stage will be set up in the middle of the field rather than at the field's endzone.
Brooks originally was to perform at Paul Brown Stadium last September, but the Country star canceled the show due to fast-rising COVID-19 rates at the time.

"In July (when 2021 shows were announced), 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," Brooks wrote in a website announcement last August.

That show, itself, was a reschedule from 2020, when the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic halted most activities.
