We didn’t see this one coming! In what might just be the biggest Canadian festival announcement of 2012, the Calgary Stampede has announced that country music legend Garth Brooks will perform with a full band on July 12th, 2012. Tickets, which probably won’t last long, will go on-sale Tuesday at noon local time. It’s the 100th anniversary of the historic event, and looks like they’ve picked the perfect man to help celebrate it with.
The Stampede takes place July 6th to the 15th this year. Other announced performers so far include Brad Paisley and The Band Perry.
