Sixteen years after his last shows in Minneapolis, Garth Brooks is coming back for four shows at Target Center in November.

The country star is bringing his Garth Brooks World Tour to Minneapolis Nov. 14 and 15. Brooks will be playing two shows per night at Target Center, at 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., FOX 9 reports.

Opening up for Brooks is his wife, fellow country star Trisha Yearwood.

Tickets, which go on sale Oct. 3 online and by phone, will all cost $70.50, including fees.

Brooks last played Minneapolis in 1998 with nine shows at Target Center. KARE 11 says the concerts drew 159,000 fans.

The Star Tribune says Brooks has been easing back into touring, having played shows in Las Vegas last year that resulted in a CBS-TV special in November.

The singer retired in 2001 to concentrate on raising his children, only playing select shows for special occasions and charity, KARE says.

The Star Tribune says it's conceivable that Brooks will add more Minneapolis shows if the first four sell out.

Brooks kicked off his world tour earlier this month with 11 shows in Chicago. He's currently in the middle of a slate of shows in Atlanta, before moving on to more dates in Jacksonville, Florida, next month.

The 52-year-old singer will play Lexington, Kentucky, Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, before coming to Minnesota for his Target Center shows.

Brooks' website says the singer's first studio album in 13 years is due out Nov. 11. The still-untitled release, which currently features a small "g" in a circle on the cover, will include Brooks' new single, "People Loving People."

The release of the album, Brooks' ninth, will mark the first time any of the singer's music will be released digitally. Brooks says on his site that the music will also be available on CD.
