A Few More Dates: Garth Brooks, Jane’s Addiction, Avenged Sevenfold

Garth Brooks adds another destination to his upcoming tour … Jane’s Addiction’s “Sterling Spoon” tour lives on with two more dates …  Avenged Sevenfold announces a free show to break in its new drummer.

Country’s reigning king has announced one show in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 8 at .

If Garth Brooks fans are lucky and the show sells out quickly another night might be added, as happened in Fresno and other cities.

Garth hasn’t played Orlando in 18 years, so those interested would do well to buy tickets quickly on Aug. 26. The onsale begins at 10 a.m. EDT.

The new date is the latest stop added to his global trek with his wife, Trisha Yearwood.

The celebration for the 25th anniversary of Jane’s Addiction’s seminal album Ritual de lo Habitual continues with California shows in Irvine and San Francisco.

The new dates are at the  Sept. 21 and  Sept. 23. The Irvine performance will feature The CultGarbageViolent Femmes and House of Pain as special guests. The night at SF Masonic will be with Fishbone.

The anniversary tour began in July with a run of gigs in July with Dinosaur Jr. and Living Colour. The band is also commemorating the first , which was initially created by frontman Perry Farrell as a farewell tour.

You can also catch Jane’s Addiction at  in Denver Sept. 2 and  in Las Vegas Sept. 24.

Tickets to the SF show are on sale now and the presale for Irvine is also already on. The general onsale for the Irvine show opens Aug.19.

Before opening for Metallica in Minneapolis Aug. 20, Avenged Sevenfold is playing a free show at a smaller local venue Aug. 18 to get some practice in.

The show will be at the 1,550-capacity  and the doors open at 7 p.m. There is no ticketing for the gig, so it will be first come, first served.

“We got into Minneapolis a little bit early and decided we wanted to play a small gig to get the blood flowing again,” the group wrote on its website. “We called up the world famous ‘First Avenue’ and asked if we could play a free show tomorrow night, Aug 18th, and they said yes! So, there you have it!”

One reason the show is happening is so that Brooks Wackerman, the group’s relatively new drummer, can work through the songs before a live audience, according to City Pages. When the band plays at  on Saturday, it will be to a packed house that can fit more than 65,000. Tickets sold out in 10 minutes, according to the Star Tribune.
