Garth Brooks Breaks Atlanta Ticket Sales Record
Ticket sales for Garth Brooks' stops at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., have exceeded the artist's own previous record.
Brooks set the record for sales in Atlanta in 1996, with 81,902 tickets sold for his shows on March 13 - 17 at the Omni. He has already passed that number for his upcoming shows, and tickets are still selling.
When Brooks announced that he would be headed to Atlanta, it was for a single show on Sept. 19. He's added a number of dates at the arena since then -- most recently, one show each on Sept. 26 and 27 -- for a current total of seven performances. He is the only artist to ever sell seven consecutive shows at the arena, breaking a record of four held by Elvis Presley.
In keeping with Brooks’ promise to offer affordable prices for his upcoming tour, tickets for the Atlanta shows will cost $56.94 plus $4.56 tax, a $4.00 facility fee and a $6.00 service charge, totaling $71.50.
Brooks will kick off his upcoming comeback tour in Chicago on Sept. 4. The tour may last as long as three years and will feature new music from the album he is currently working on. His wife, Trisha Yearwood, will also appear on all shows.
