Brooks has recently claimed two coveted touring achievements: The top spot on Forbes‘ 2015 Highest-Paid Country Acts list AND the No. 2 spot on Pollstar‘s list of the top-grossing North American touring artists for the first half of 2015.
Brooks, who has earned $79.9 million in revenue from 74 shows played this year, missed the No. 1 spot which was claimed by the Rolling Stones, who have made $80.5 million so far in 2015.
Fleetwood Mac came in at No. 3, having earned $65.9 million thus far in 2015, while Kenny Chesney came in at No. 4, earning $55.8 million so far in 2015, and U2 claimed the fifth spot ($40.3 million).
Brooks launched his three-year World Tour with wife Trisha Yearwood last year, and says that things will get a little different this month starting in Dallas, Texas.
“We have taken a lot of looks at what’s working, got rid of things that weren’t, and we’re coming out with a brand-new look,” Brooks says.
“We’re gonna re-design the whole video world, the wings of the stage are a little different, and the setlist is kind of … it’s starting to fall into the sweet spot.”
His re-designed Dallas shows ae scheduled for Sept. 17-22. Check out more tour dates below!
