Garth Brooks has sold out his second concert at U.S. Bank in Minneapolis. The first stadium show sold out in an hour last week while the second stadium show sold out in two hours today (Thurs, Dec 20th). More than 100,000 tickets were sold for both shows. The concerts are Friday, May 3rd at 7 pm and Saturday, May 4th at 7 pm. The tour is presented by Amazon Music. The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour is returning to the Twin Cities after four and a half years.
On Friday, May 14th, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton asked Garth Brooks to perform a second concert at U.S. Bank Stadium, after the hour long sell out left upwards of 50,000 still waiting to buy tickets. This past Monday morning on a conference call with Governor Dayton and local press in Minneapolis, Brooks agreed to a second show. Brooks had planned to do a press conference with Governor Dayton at the Minnesota State Capitol that morning, but due to a mechanical issue with the airplane, he had to cancel.
Both concerts will be end stage in-the-round staging. There will be an eight ticket limit per purchase. Tickets can only be purchased at ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks or either Ticketmaster Express 1-866-448-7849 or 1-800-745-3000.
