Fans were a little too excited when tickets to Garth Brooks’ show at Neyland Stadium went on sale over the weekend – causing the site to crash. Now, concertgoers will have to wait to vie for tickets again this week.
Brooks is set to perform at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville on November 16. The tickets first went on sale Friday morning, however, the site suddenly stopped selling tickets. Fans took to social media to share their experience:
Anybody else having issues trying to do it online? The @Ticketmaster website keeps refreshing when I try to join the queue so it won’t actually let me get in line

Impossible to get. I had alarms set and got at least 7 sets of tickets but timed out every time due to their delay in processing information. What a waste of a morning. Thanks @Ticketmaster

None of them have worked. I have been in queue for over an hour and when I call it either gives me a busy signal or I get put on hold and then it disconnects me.

I was in the “waiting room” as soon as I was allowed and then spent about 2 hours on the whole process to only come up empty handed due to the system continuously giving me errors every time I chose seats and clicked to buy them. 😕😭💔 @garthbrooks pic.twitter.com/IX5fuSHJZZ

At 11 a.m. on Friday, Brooks tweeted to explain that there had been a problem on Ticketmaster.

Fans will have another opportunity to snag tickets to see the country legend this Thursday, September 19 at 10 a.m. According to a press release from the University of Tennessee, staging will be in-the-round and the entire stadium will be sold, including field-level seats. The show is a part of his ongoing stadium tour. During the trek, he’s sold-out at every single show, including Notre Dame Stadium, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, and the U.S. Bank Stadium.
This year, he’s also slated to head out on a 7-date Dive Bar Tour with Blake Shelton, supporting their new single of the same name.
