Garth Brooks Charlotte Stadium Tour date rescheduled for fourth time

All tickets will be honored

Promoters for Garth Brooks’ Stadium Tour stop in Charlotte, NC have postponed the date for the fourth time, due to COVID-19 restrictions. The trek — originally scheduled for Bank of America Stadium on May 2nd, and then rescheduled for June 13th, then bumped again to October 10th and then to April 10th — will now happen on September 25, 2021, if social distancing restrictions are lifted.

This will be the only Carolina stop on Brooks’ The Stadium Tour that was scheduled to wrap in 2022. All tickets purchased will be honored.

During the on-sale in December 2019, Brooks sold 74,000 tickets in 90 minutes, selling out Bank of America Stadium and becoming the largest paid crowd in its history.

Besides Charlotte, Cincinnati has already been rescheduled for May 2021, as of press time, while the sold out Las Vegas show, set for August 22nd as the first live event at Allegiant Stadium, is now set for July 10th after being rescheduled to February 27th. All tickets will be honored for the original dates.

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour was set to hit 10-12 cities per year for an initial three year run with most of the venues being college stadiums. Brooks has confirmed stadium tour dates are scheduled through summer of 2022, with several unannounced dates having been rescheduled due to the pandemic. Additional dates will roll out whenever possible.

Since The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour launch in March 2019, Brooks has broken stadium attendance records in St. Louis, MO at The Dome at America’s Center, Glendale, AZ at State Farm Stadium, Gainesville, FL at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, two sold out nights at Minneapolis, MN’s U.S. Bank Stadium, Denver, CO at Mile High Stadium, Eugene, OR at Autzen Stadium and two sold out nights at Boise, ID’s Albertsons Stadium shows, both of which sold out in under an hour. Brooks also broke records at Regina, SK’s Mosaic Stadium show on August 10th that sold out in under a hour, averaging just over 75,000 tickets in each city. Brooks added a second date in Regina, SK on August 9th due to demand. He hosted record-breaking numbers in Boise, ID with 86,000 in attendance for two back to back shows, with special guest Blake Shelton tagging along for the first night to perform their new single “Dive Bar” which was recorded and filmed.

In November 2019, Brooks set the concert ticket sales record at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, TN. Brooks broke the internet, literally, when the initial round of tickets went on sale in September, freezing Ticketmaster’s systems. Moving at over one thousand tickets a minute, the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour ticket on sale for Knoxville, TN came to a halt when the system could not open tickets fast enough to keep up with the demand. Over 80,000 tickets were sold after production hold seats were released and sold out in minutes.

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour averaged just over 83,000 tickets in each city and over 914,000 tickets sold to date.

It was announced last week that wife Trisha Yearwood has tested positive for COVID-19 after the superstar couple had been quarantining at home on the heels of a recent positive COVID test by a member of their team. Subsequent tests indicated Yearwood has contracted COVID, while Brooks remains negative. Yearwood is doing okay as of press time, but her symptoms are unknown.
