Garth Brooks nearly quadruples Lafayette ticket record

Earlier Friday (May 12th), we published a press release stating Garth Brooks had more than doubled his Lafayette, LA ticket record with more than 30,000 tickets sold. A few hours later, it’s been revealed he has now nearly quadrupled that record by selling 47,000 tickets for five shows June 23rd-July 1st at the CAJUNDOME.

His previous record was set November, 14, 1992, at the CAJUNDOME with 12,409 tickets sold. Tickets are still available for all shows and run $74.98 all inclusive taxes and fees. There is an eight ticket limit per purchase. Tickets can only be purchased at or either Ticketmaster Express 1-866-448-7849 or 1-800-745-3000.

This is the last series of shows on the world tour for Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi as the tour begins to wind down its three year North American run. His final California, Nevada and Arizona run of dates includes a single show (as of now) set for Los Angeles on July 29th. Brooks returns to the Fabulous Forum with tickets going on sale Friday, May 19th at 10 am PDT. More LA shows are expected to be announced during the on sale.

Brooks has been breaking ticket records across the board since he returned to touring in September 2014. In February, he was awarded for selling more than five million tickets in 60 cities when it took 100 cities to sell that many during his 1996-1998 run.

Earlier this week, Brooks broke his Billings, MT ticket sales record and the Montana State ticket sales record for all sports and entertainment by selling more than 46,000 tickets for five shows at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark. He set the previous record at the arena with 41,020 tickets sold from July 2nd – 5th, 1998.

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.
