(Meredith) -- One of country music's biggest superstars is giving fans a chance to see him up close and personal at dive bars across the country.

Garth Brooks announced a seven-city "dive bar tour," where he will be trading in his normal sold-out arenas for small, intimate gatherings with a handful of lucky fans.

Brooks announced the tour Sunday night on his weekly Facebook fan chat.

The seven-city tour kicks off July 15 in Chicago, which is the only city announced so far. Brooks said a Chicago country radio station will be announcing more details for fans looking to score tickets.

The rest of the tour dates and cities will be announced July 15.

The tour is a nod to Brooks' new single with fellow country music star Blake Shelton, "Dive Bar."

Brooks is in the first year of a three-year stadium tour.
