Garth Brooks Is Now Playing Seven Shows At The AAC. Because He Can.
Well, it just got a whole lot easier to score tickets to see Garth Brooks when he hits Dallas this fall for the first time in 17 years.
Shortly after tickets went on sale to his September concerts this morning, the King of Country Music dropped a huge bomb: Turns out, he'll now be playing seven Dallas shows when he comes to town, with tickets to each starting at $75 a pop right here, right now.
The new dates are as follows:
– Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015 – 7:30 p.m.
– Friday, Sept. 18, 2015 – 7 p.m.
– Friday, Sept. 18, 2015 – 10:30 p.m.
– Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015 – 7 p.m.
– Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015 – 10:30 p.m.
– Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015 – 7:30 p.m.
– Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015 – 7:30 p.m.
The move, per representatives from Brooks' camp, was partly spurred by fan demand after nearly 76,000 tickets were sold in about 90 minutes.
Screw comeback tours. We'd say Garth is pretty much all the way back. November's Man Against Machine was his first studio record in 13 years, but it's kind of like he never left. The thunder rolls once more, as it were.
it should be noted, though, that this kind of thing isn't unprecedented for Brooks. In 1998, the singer sold 50,213 tickets for a three-night run at the old Reunion Arena. And he sold even more tickets to his legendary three-night Texas Stadium run back in 1993, selling 65,000 tickets in 90 minutes, and eventually selling out the Cowboys' old home all three nights. (Footage from those 1993 shows were later released as the This Is Garth Brooks II concert special for NBC.)
Needless to say, Dallas has been good to Garth Brooks over the years. And after a nearly two-decade dry spell, it seems he's ready once again to treat us low-place friends of his.
