On Thursday, May 11th, Brooks broke his Billings, MT ticket sales record and the Montana State ticket sales record for all sports and entertainment. He set the previous record July 2nd – 5th, 1998, at MetraPark Arena with 41,020 tickets sold, but sold more than 46,000 tickets for five shows at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark.

Brooks continues to break touring records selling more than five million tickets in 60 cities on the three year North American run of his world tour with Trisha Yearwood. Brooks sold that many in 100 cities during his 1996-1998 trek.

Brooks is nearing the end of the North American leg of his world tour with Trisha Yearwood. On Wednesday (May 10th), he announced a single show in July for The Forum in Los Angeles with the caption,  “Countdown to the END of the North American tour begins!” Brooks has previously stated that LA, along with Kansas City (which Brooks just wrapped a series of shows last weekend), Oklahoma City and Nashville, would be among the last North American cities on the tour. These were the cities he performed charities shows during his retirement before the tour started in 2014.
