The country star announced Wednesday that he will play at the venue in the Bronx on July 9. His last performance in NYC was in Central Park in 1997.

Tickets, at roughly $80 with fees, go on sale May 20. His wife, country singer Trisha Yearwood, will also perform.

Brooks returned to music in 2014 after a 13-year break with the album, "Man Against Machine." The 54-year-old is one of the best-selling acts in music history.
