Brooks kicks off stadium tour in St. Louis
Garth Brooks is now five for five on his stadium tour. The country superstar has set a massive record and has sold out all five stadiums he’s scheduled to play so far on the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour.
Brooks kicks the three year North American stadium trek off on Saturday (Mar 9th) in St. Louis where he now holds the all-time record for Any Paid Event at The Dome at America’s Center.
The next stop is Glendale, AZ on March 23rd where he now holds the record for the Largest Concert Attendance in the History of the State Farm Stadium.
Gainesville, FL is next on the list for the Largest Crowd of Any Non-Athletic Event at the University of Florida’s Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The concert is April 20th and sold out as of Thursday (Mar 7th).
Brooks holds the record in Pittsburgh for the Largest Crowd Ever in the History of Heinz Field. The concert is May 18th.
Finally, due to popular demand, Brooks returns to Minneapolis for two shows on May 3rd and 4th where he holds the record for the Largest Concert Attendance in the History of the U.S. Bank Stadium.
The tour will hit 10-12 cities per year for three years and will be in the round staging.
The trek follows his three year North American arena run with wife Trisha Yearwood that smashed records previously held by himself, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. The tour played 79 cities, 390 concerts with over 100,000 tickets sold in over 20 cities. The tour sold over 6.3 million tickets, making it the biggest North American tour in history and the biggest American tour in the world.
In October, Brooks sold out the first ever concert at Notre Dame Football Stadium. The concert, Garth: Live at Notre Dame was filmed for television and aired December 2nd on CBS.
Last week, Brooks broke the internet by selling 20,000 numbered boxed sets of his new Legacy seven LP vinyl collection, totaling 420,000 vinyl albums. The initial quantity was gone in just over 12 hours, but demand exceeded the allotted amount of inventory, and Brooks kept the small window open another six hours to combat the troubled start to the on sale. The sets, being handmade in four different countries, aren’t expected to ship until November.
