Garth Brooks Breaks Denver Ticket Sales Record
Garth Brooks has broken yet another ticket sales record.
The singer-songwriter sold more than 140,000 tickets for nine shows at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo., during the first day of the on-sale period. That number breaks Brooks' previous Denver record of 50,685 tickets, set in 1996 for three shows at McNichols Arena.
Thanks to the high demand for tickets, Brooks added several shows to his series of concerts in Denver. His first concert is set for March 18, and he'll play in Denver until March 24.
Brooks recently regained his title as the best-selling solo artist in the United States and earned platinum certification for his latest studio album, 'Man Against Machine.'
“I never thought I’d see another one of these,” Brooks admits. “The greatest gift I’ve ever received was the time off to raise our kids. But I’ve got to tell you … the greatest next gift I’ve received was the chance to do it all again. We’re having a great time.”
The Oklahoma native has shows scheduled in Boston, Mass.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Detroit, Mich.; and Buffalo, N.Y., before heading to Colorado. An updated list of his concerts can be found here.
