Garth Brooks Comeback Special Is Total Sell Out

garth brooks11All 240,000 tickets for the three-day Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event sold out in 90 minutes. The concerts will take place Friday, July 25; Saturday, July 26; and Sunday, July 27 at Dublin, Ireland’s Croke Park. This is the first time an artist has sold out three dates at the venue in one day. Tickets cost 65 euros or about $88 each.

10,000 people stood in line across the country to buy tickets. Some fans camped outside for days, braving downpours and biting winds.

The concerts are taking place ahead of Brooks’ world tour. He last played at Croke Park in 1997.

Brooks’ longtime manager Bob Doyle said, “We’re thrilled. Peter Aiken, his team and Ticketmaster have done an amazing job.”

“In 52 years of business this is the fastest selling concert Aiken Promotions have ever been involved in,” added Aiken.

Brooks also sold out his recent appearance at the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. The sell out of 15,000-plus seats happened in less then a minute. He was recently inducted into the International Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Brooks has sold in excess of 128 million albums and was certified by the RIAA in 2000 as the No. 1 selling solo artist in U.S. history.
