Garth Brooks Breaks His Own Record

GARTH BROOKS has added an eleventh show to his run in MINNEAPOLIS. The icon has now broken his own single-city ticket record, which he just recently set with his tour stop in CHICAGO.
For his SEPTEMBER tour launch in CHICAGO, BROOKS set a single-city ticket record of 180,000 for his eleven shows at ALLSTATE ARENA. To date, BROOKS has sold 188,000 tickets in MINNEAPOLIS, and tickets are still selling.
Prior to the tour launch in CHICAGO, BROOKS held a record in MINNEAPOLIS, selling 162,833 tickets for his nine shows at the TARGET CENTER in 1998. This only goes to show that time has not weathered BROOKS' popularity.
By tour's end, there is little doubt that BROOKS will set many more records -- breaking some he personally set.
