RCA NASHVILLE/PEARL RECORDS artist GARTH BROOKS continues to break records with his mega-selling "GARTH BROOKS WORLD TOUR WITH TRISHA YEARWOOD." BROOKS announced he will play YANKEE STADIUM in NEW YORK CITY earlier this MONTH (NET NEWS 5/11), and when tickets went on sale at 10a (ET) this MORNING (5/20), the event sold out in under an hour. The stadium's official capacity is listed as 54,251, though it is currently unclear as to how many seats are being sold for the concert event.
BROOKS has since added a second show and will now play YANKEE STADIUM on both FRIDAY, JULY 8th and SATURDAY, JULY 9th. In a press conference earlier this WEEK, BROOKS hinted that the event would be filmed. No details have been made available about when or how the event will be broadcast or if BROOKS will continue to add shows to meet demand at this unique venue.
