Garth Brooks surpasses Calgary ticket record, adds additional shows

Brooks will perform seven shows in September

It took just 37 minutes for Garth Brooks to break his Calgary, AB ticket sales record. His previous record was set August 7th – 9th, 1996, with 53,076 tickets sold for the Saddledome. Today (July 28th), he has sold over 57,000 for the Scotiabank Saddledome and tickets are still selling!

The tour is presented by Amazon Music Unlimited. It’s the last set of shows on the world tour for the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The concerts will be:

Friday, September 1st 7 pm
Saturday, September 2nd 3 pm
Saturday, September 2nd 7:30 pm
Sunday, September 3rd 7:30 pm
Friday, September 8th 7 pm
Saturday, September 9th 3 pm
Saturday, September 9th 7:30 pm

There is an eight ticket limit per purchase. Tickets can only be purchased at ticketmaster.ca/garthbrooks or either Ticketmaster Express 1-855-985-5500 or 1-855-985-5000.

Tickets will cost $65.83 plus a $7.90 tax and a $6.25 service charge for a total of $79.98. All seats sold are best available.

Yesterday, Brooks more than doubled his ticket sales record for Sioux Falls, SD with a run of nine shows over the two weekend period of September 15th through 24th. Brooks wraps his two weekend run of shows in Los Angeles this weekend before taking all of August off to retool the show. Calgary and Sioux Falls kick off the eighth and final leg of the North American tour in September.

He will also make a special return to Atlanta — a rare feat during the same tour — on October to perform at the new Mercedes Benz Stadium featuring a unique stage configuration that will see Brooks utilizing the one-of-a-kind halo board in stadium. More dates will continue to be announced through December with a final Nashville stop which has yet to be unveiled.
