Garth Reschedules Stadium Dates In Cincinnati, Charlotte

Garth Brooks has rescheduled his upcoming stadium concerts in Charlotte and Cincinnati.

Brooks’ Bank of America Stadium show in Charlotte was scheduled for May 2, and will now be held June 13, and all tickets will be honored. During the on sale, Brooks sold 74,000 tickets to this show in 90 minutes, making it the largest paid crowd in the history of Bank of America stadium.

The Paul Brown Stadium date in Cincinnati was scheduled for May 16, and will now be June 27, and all tickets will be honored for that date as well. Brooks set the all-time record for entertainment in Cincinnati with this show with a sell-out of 70,000 seats in 75 minutes. This will mark Brooks’ first time playing at Paul Brown Stadium and the only Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia date on The Stadium Tour.

“Like so many people right now, I just want to get back to what I do. Knowing these shows are eventually going to happen makes me happy,” said Brooks about the change.

Like many artists who are self-quarantined to help stop the current spread of the novel coronavirus, Brooks and Trisha Yearwood joined forces for a livestream concert on Facebook Live. The event brought in 3.4 million viewers, enough that it overloaded Facebook Live, causing the site to crash several times during the show.

Brooks and Yearwood offered covers of hits for James Taylor (“Fire and Rain,” “Sweet Baby James”), Linda Ronstadt (“Long, Long Time”), as well as duets including their own “Whiskey to Wine” and a cover of George Jones and Tammy Wynette’s “Golden Ring.”

During the event, Yearwood and Brooks offered a cover of the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper hit “Shallow,” from the movie A Star Is Born. See the clip below:
