Earlier today, tickets for the Garth Brooks concert in Nashville on Dec. 17th went on sale and promptly sold-out. Then, as we anticipated, Garth started adding shows. First one, then two and by the time it was all said and done, nine shows in all were sold out. Sound familiar? You might remember back in 2007 when Garth put plans together to help open the new Sprint Center in Kansas City and that one sold-out show quickly turned into a total of nine, just as fast.
At his press conference back on October 28th, Garth hinted at the potential for the one show to turn into more. Garth vowed to do every show he could manage to work in as long as tickets were in demand. With every potential ticket sold representing money that can help families that are still putting their lives back together in the aftermath of Tennessee’s floods. Garth came through on that promise in a big way today with an estimated 140,000 tickets sold. At $25 a ticket, my quick math has the total potential benefit for Middle-Tennessee flood victims coming in somewhere around $3.5 million. All proceeds from the events will benefit the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
The concerts will feature wife Trisha Yearwood and likely some surprise guests along the way. Here’s the breakdown of how Garth’s nine-concert stand in Nashville will go down:
- Thursday, Dec. 16 at 7 and 10 p.m.
