Garth Brooks about to announce comeback tour?

Garth Brooks is apparently about to start a comeback tour.

A post on Brooks' website Thursday said "The wait is over...7/7," as lightning flashes and thunder rolls in the background.

I suppose he's not talking about having lunch.

That would have to be one awesome meal.

Brooks stopped touring in 2001, vowing to stay home in Oklahoma with wife Trisha Yearwood, and raise his three daughters, according to Rolling Stone. At the time, he vowed not to tour until the youngest graduated from high school.

Guess what happened in May?

Well ... yes, there was Mother's Day. But Brooks' daughter graduated from high school.

The singer has already booked a five-night run in Ireland, July 25-29 at Dublin's Croke Park. But there has been no announcement yet of any U.S. dates.

"We're going on a world tour in 2014," Brooks told ABC's 'Good Morning America' last year. "It sure feels good to get to throw your hat back in the ring ... All my babies are fine with it. Ms. Yearwood is fine with it. So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music. I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Ms. Yearwood."

"My children are off on their own so the guilt of not being there ... I'm a phone call dad now," he added, joking, "'Hey Dad, I love you, can I borrow some money?'"

I think he can probably afford to just give them the money without the whole "loan" part.

A July 7 announcement is reportedly in the offing, though Rolling Stone speculates that if it's not about tour dates, it may be a new project about which Brooks has hinted.

"There is something that could be happening between now and the tour that might be the biggest thing I've ever tried to take on," Brooks told Country Aircheck late last year. "If it comes to fruition, and it looks like it's going to, it will be the biggest thing I've ever tried to attempt. I'm really excited about it. It'll be done right, it'll be done quality. I'm in love with the idea and we just have to see if it's going to happen."

Sounds like he's going to try buying a really big hat.

Brooks' last album was the 2013 box set, "Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences," on which he covered a range of other artists, from Hank Williams to Otis Redding.

Never was a big fan of his.

I swear these singers who retire just do so, so they can do a comeback tour as if everyone missed them.

Big rip off of the people.
