“It breaks my heart to see city after city go on sale and then have to ask those sweet people and the venues to reschedule,” Brooks said. “We have a three-week window coming up where we, as a group, will assess the remainder of the stadium tour this year. It’s humbling to see people put this much faith in you as an artist, and it kills me to think I am letting them down.”
