Over the weekend, Garth Brooks’ Stadium Tour stopped in at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Ticket sales went beyond 75,000 and that made it the largest ever for any non-athletic event at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Only three shows into the tour and each stop has set a record.
Garth talks more about his stadium tour, “We’ve got some pretty cool cities that are comin’ up. This has been…this has been the sweetest tour so far. And I was amazed, you know, because the shows – there’s not six in a city or five in a city. There’s just one with the exception of St. Paul-Minneapolis, but…I gotta tell ya – the fun I’m having at the one…and all the things that surround it…it really makes it almost feel more like a family than when you got to go camp there for six or seven days.”
The stadium ranks among the 20 largest in the world and has nearly 90 years of history behind it. Garth’s show was the first concert to be held at the historic venue in 25 years.
Garth’s Stadium Tour shows have shattered records in each city and venue placed on sale so far. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 25th for his show at the University of Oregon’s Autzen Stadium on June 29th.
