Garth Brooks sells out both Ryman shows

Events are Nov 19th and 20th

Garth Brooks has sold out both shows at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on November 19th and 20th. More than 22k people had been in line to get tickets online, but were turned away.

“I am stunned at the number of people who showed up for this on sale, and as happy as I should be, I feel bad for the people who did not get tickets,” Brooks shares. “We have already talked to the Opry House and we are starting on a plan to take care of as many as we can who did not get tickets. I still can’t believe it.”

Details about the possibly Opry House shows have not been unveiled as of press time.

Brooks announced the shows earlier this week after teasing them on Monday’s Inside Studio G Facebook Live series. Many fans assumed the news would involve a Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace in 2022.

“What would be fun would be to somehow do a residency in Vegas and in Nashville, because they got great places to play here. Now, I’m not going to drop the ball as tomorrow’s a pretty big announcement,” he teased.

No confirmation on a new Vegas residency has been unveiled as of press time, but we’ll have further details should it be announced.

Brooks canceled the remaining 2021 dates of his stadium tour due to a resurgence of rising COVID cases towards the end of summer, but vowed the end the trek next year. He teases that three to four dates would be going on sale by Christmas.

Plans to end the multi-year trek are underway for a possible long-awaited return to Dublin’s Croke Park in September 2022. Irish news outlets began circulating that unconfirmed news late this summer with Brooks neither confirming nor denying those rumors on Facebook Live.

Brooks recently resumed his Dive Bar Tour which is expected to continue throughout 2022. The country superstar shares that performing intimate shows with less fans in attendance makes it easier to screen for vaccination status than the thousands that flock to see sell out performances in stadiums.
