A historic blizzard is expected to touch down on Friday (22Jan16), and, as a precaution, the country music icon announced on Thursday (21Jan16) that he will be unable to perform at Royal Farms Arena on Friday and Saturday as scheduled.

Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood were slated to take to the stage together in Baltimore, as part of his highly-anticipated comeback tour.

The gigs shattered the existing ticket sales record for the venue, prompting officials to add two more shows on 29 and 30 January (16) due to high demand.

Both the postponed shows are scheduled to take place on 31 January (16), when Brooks will perform afternoon and evening performances.
