All 2020 dates postponed due to COVID-19
Promoters for Garth Brooks’ Stadium Tour stop in Charlotte, NC have postponed the date again, due to COVID-19 and social distancing laws. The trek — originally scheduled for Bank of America Stadium on May 2nd, and then rescheduled for June 13th, then bumped again to October 10th — will now happen on April 10, 2021, if allowed.
This will be the only North Carolina and South Carolina stop on Brooks’ The Stadium Tour that was scheduled to wrap in 2022. All tickets purchased will be honored. Refunds will be offered for those who can’t attend the new date.
During the on-sale, Brooks sold 74,000 tickets in 90 minutes. It’s the largest paid crowd in the history of Bank of America Stadium.
The remainder of the 2020 stadium tour has been postponed until 2021, if allowed by local governments. Besides Charlotte, Cincinnati has already been rescheduled, while the sold out Las Vegas show, set for August 22nd as the first live event at Allegiant Stadium, is now set for February 27, 2021. All tickets will be honored for the original dates.
In a recent Facebook Live chat, Brooks shared that stadium tour dates are scheduled through summer of 2022. He says his camp will be twice as busy in 2021 as they attempt to make up dates that weren’t announced but scheduled in 2020, including a stop in Kansas City.
This is the second year of the stadium tour. The trek will hit 10-12 cities per year for three years with most of the venues being college stadiums. In 2019, Garth Brooks The Stadium Tour averaged just over 83,000 tickets in each city and over 914,000 tickets sold to date.
In the meantime, the country superstar said virtual reality is something he has was exploring before COVID-19 shutdown the world, and could be coming soon. “VR is the natural next step as far as people getting to experience the concert because we’ve all experienced concerts, if we’re lucky, from the audience side, but did you experience from the drummer’s view? It’ll blow your mind.”
More details as they become available.
