Both shows are part of The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour
Garth Brooks has sold out his Regina, SK stadium date. The show for Saturday, August 10th at Mosaic Stadium sold out in 59 minutes. This will be Brooks’ first time headlining a concert in Regina, SK and the first ever country concert event at Mosaic Stadium.
“Congratulations Garth Brooks on selling out Mosaic Stadium here in Regina in only 59 minutes!” states the Saskatchewan Premier and City of Regina Mayor. “We are so humbled and incredibly excited to welcome you to Saskatchewan. We’ll have a Rider jersey and steak on the barbeque ready for you August 10. We can’t wait!”
Brooks has also now sold out his Denver stadium at Broncos Stadium at Mile High for this weekend with 84,000 tickets. This breaks the ticket sales record for Broncos Stadium at Mile High. The previous record was set in May 2011 with 77,000 tickets sold by U2.
The stadium shows are in-the-round staging.
Brooks has broken a record at every stop on the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour. The county star will hit 10-12 cities per year for three years. 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.
Brooks is set to release his new single, “Dive Bar,” with Blake Shelton to country radio on Tuesday, June 18th. The pair will perform the song live for the first time at Brooks’ Boise, ID’s Albertsons Stadium show on July 19th. Brooks co-wrote the tune with Mitch Rossell and Bryan Kennedy. “Dive Bar” is taken from his forthcoming studio album Fun, in which a release date has yet to be announced, but is expected sometime later this year.
Brooks is also planning to film his first official music video in ten years for the track. “I think we have to [make a music video]!” he tells Nancy O’Dell. “I don’t know when the last time we did a country music video was, but you don’t want to pass this opportunity up. It’s going to be fun.”
