Garth Brooks sells more than 115,000 Edmonton tickets

The Thunder Rolls … yet again.

Hot country, early ’90s superstar Garth Brooks has added yet more dates to Edmonton, bringing the total number of shows to nine— spanning more than a week in town. More of this and he’ll have to rent an apartment.

Garth has sold more than 115,000 tickets so far. His previous ticket sales record was set Aug. 10-12, 1996 at Northlands Coliseum with 50,871 tickets sold.

Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will now also play Thursday, Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 25 at 3 p.m.,  in addition to the Saturday, Feb. 25, 7 p.m. gig announced earlier this week. Tickets for these new shows at the downtown arena are on sale now at Ticketmaster. 

These new dates are in addition to five other shows, four announced last week. Brooks also occupies Rogers Place Friday, Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 18 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday Feb. 19 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Country music, it seems, is here to stay. Will the singer wear a different colour of the rainbow outfit each performance? Only one way to find out, partner.
