Country star Garth Brooks has broken Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium ticket record within minutes of going on sale.
Brooks is slated to headline the stadium on November 16 as a part of his ongoing stadium tour. According to a press release, 75,000 tickets were sold, with the potential total nearing 80,000. Around 6,000 “production hold seats” reportedly sold in minutes.
“When you’re dealing with a stadium of this size, everything is bigger,” Brooks said. ” The numbers are bigger, the production holds are bigger. The number of people who showed up today was bigger. I can only hope this means the fun in this stadium is going to be bigger than I can imagine!”
So far, Brooks has sold-out every stadium on his trek. He first appeared at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, becoming the first artist to play the 88-year-old stadium. From there, he visited Glendale, Minneapolis, and Gainesville, stopping at venues like St. Louis’ The Dome at America’s Center and Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field. He’s consistently broken records, holding the biggest concert to date at the Bronco’s Stadium and broke the sales record at Heinz Field.
In addition to the stadium trek, Brooks also revealed a dive bar tour that kicked-off this past summer with Blake Shelton following the release of their joint track “Dive Bar.”
