Garth Brooks sure knows how turn up the hype.

Following the news that he'll be going out on tour and releasing new music and that he kicks off in Chicago, he's added a few more juicy details. The Chicago show will take place on Sept. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.

"As an entertainer, you get asked a lot 'what are the best cities to play?' Without hesitation, I rattle five or six of the best places to play and that list ALWAYS includes Chicago. It is the PERFECT city to launch the World Tour!" Brooks said in a news release.

Tickets ($65.50) go on sale July 25 at 10 a.m. CT at Ticketmaster.com. You won't be able to buy tickets at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets that day.

His Allstate Arena kickoff is bookended by Marco Antonio Solis on Aug. 23 and Ed Sheeran on Sept. 16, giving Garth plenty of room to add more shows after the first night sells out.
