Country music singer Garth Brooks talks about playing in Iowa during a news conference on Friday, April 29, 2016, in Des Moines.


Country music superstar Garth Brooks is set to perform six shows between Friday and Tuesday at Wells Fargo Arena. The shows mark the first time an act has played the arena more than once on a given tour.
