Brooks’ other two announced 2020 stadium dates have been postponed multiple times due to social distancing restrictions. The Cincinnati date – originally scheduled for Paul Brown Stadium on May 16, but rescheduled for June 27, then May 1 – will now be September 18 with Charlotte – originally scheduled for Bank of America Stadium on May 2, then rescheduled for June 13, then pushed back again to October 10, then April 10 – will now take place on September 25. All tickets for each original date will be honored for the respective news.
Brooks confirms that more stadium tour dates will be announced soon. He says some stadiums will require masks and choose not to serve as concessions for security reasons.
âNow I want you to think of this as a no downside. I want you to really think about what I’m going to tell you, âBrooks shares during Monday’s Facebook Live series (March 29), Inside Studio G. âThe stadiums live on their concessions. So to say that they are not ready to do this to protect you and me is a huge declaration of love from them for us.
