What’s Garth Brooks gonna play in Pittsburgh?

Artist of the decade award winner Garth Brooks performs at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday, March 14, 2019, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Brooks plays a sold-out Heinz Field May 18.

What’s your favorite Garth Brooks’ song?

Perhaps it’s the poignant “The Dance” or the fun, rebellious “Ain’t Going Down (‘Til the Sun Comes Up)?”

What you hear from Brooks in Heinz Field May 18 is anybody’s guess. His song selection varies wildly from venue to venue.

According to setlist.fm, fans at the St. Louis show in The Dome at America’s Center March 9 and the Gainesville show in Ben Griffin Stadium April 20 were treated to a pair of duets with his wife Trisha Yearwood. The two performed Yearwood’s signature hits “She’s in Love With the Boy” and “Walkaway Joe.” “Rodeo” made the cut in each of the stadium tour dates so far, as has “Unanswered Prayers” and a cover of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s “Fishin’ in the Dark.”

The encore performances, however, have been different in every single show on The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour.

Fans at The Dome were treated to a 10-song encore that included “Wolves,” “Wrapped Up in You,” “She’s Every Woman,” “Make You Feel My Love,” “Ireland,” “What She’s Doing Now,” “Stronger Than Me,” “Tacoma, “The Red Strokes” and “Standing Outside the Fire.” The 6-song encore in Glendale, Ariz.’s State Farm Stadium featured covers of Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” and Don McLean’s “American Pie.” He ended the Minneapolis show with a cover of Billy Joel’s classic “Piano Man.”

While this is surely no indication of what to expect in Heinz Field, here’s Brooks’ set list from his most recent show, the May 4 concert at U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, compiled by setlist.fm.
