Garth Brooks is set to continue his unofficial Atlanta residency with a fifth concert scheduled for Sept. 21 at Philips Arena. It has been nearly two decades since the best-selling artist made his way to the city and with the accompaniment of wife Trisha Yearwood for all tour dates, this Sunday evening performance is certainly one that is not to be missed. While few details have been divulged regarding the set list, stage design, or any other element of the live experience, with Brooks having been off the tour circuit since 2000, fans can surely expect to hear old favorites and classics, and perhaps even a new track or two from his new album set to be released sometime in 2014.
