Garth Brooks Continues to Shatter Records & Adds St. Louis Gig!

Garth Brooks

Garth Brooks has shattered his North American ticket sales record for a single city with over 188,000 tickets sold from eleven shows at the Target Center in Minneapolis and they are still selling!

The record was previously held by Chicago where he sold 180,000 tickets from eleven shows at the Allstate Arena. Before that was his 1998 record for 162,833 tickets sold from nine shows at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

The show has been getting rave reviews:

Rolling Stone: “He’s back!”

The Tennessean: “Go to a Garth Brooks concert, sit down and be quiet. He dares you. He makes it impossible…as the first notes of the song were played, an electric feeling of anticipation blanketed the room as the audience started screaming. Not just cheering, screaming.”

USA Today: “…as loud as Brooks screamed Thursday night, as he opened his comeback tour at Allstate Arena, the crowd screamed back louder…when he picked up an acoustic guitar…the crowd went berserk.”

Radio.com: “triumphant,” and “a full-throttle live show so energetic, emotional and packed with sing-along hits that you’d never guess he’d been off the concert-tour circuit for well over a decade.”

Chicago Sun-Times: “This was an audience that erupted at an opening guitar strum or drumbeat…the more traditional country songs from the set positioned Brooks back to his strengths, as a singer who could lead a hoedown and make a sports arena feel like a barn dance.”

Los Angeles Times: “…he delivered a physically demanding, emotionally explosive performance…”

CMT.COM: “The fans applauded him, he applauded them. They cried, he cried. He reached his hand down, they reached their hands up…Brooks seemed to be taking the energy from the more than 17,000 fans there and giving it right back to them in a steady stream of what he referred to as his cowboy songs.”

Daily Beast: “The deafening volume of the crowd, screaming in high pitch in reaction to every small move Brooks made during the opening night of his tour, proved that he doesn’t have to chase anything. Millions will continue to chase him.”

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “…there was something borderline profound about that performance, found in the infectious, angelic sound of thousands singing together in harmony- a balanced mix of longtime fans and young adults who were small children during Brooks’ ’90s reign- and in Brooks’ genuinely overwhelmed expression.”

The Florida Times-Union: “…he is one of the most intense performers you’ll ever see…So I’ll say this: It doesn’t matter if you don’t know country music, or even if you don’t like country music. If you see Brooks in concert, you absolutely will be entertained.”

The Orlando Sentinel: “…delivered a roof-rattling, rip-roaring show with style, energy and skill that many younger stars ought toenvy.”

After 18 years away The Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood is coming back to St. Louis! The concerts will be Friday, December 5th 7:00 PM and Saturday, December 6th 7:00 PM at the Scottrade Center.

Tickets will be on sale Friday, October 24th at 10:00 AM CST. There will be an eight ticket limit per purchase. Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com, ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks or 1-800-745-3000 or Ticketmaster Express 1-866-448-7849. Please note there will be no sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets on October 24th.

Tickets will cost $57.15 plus $4.85 tax, a $3.00 facility fee and a $6.00 service charge, totaling $71.00.  Purchase tickets and see a list of the Minneapolis shows at www.axs.com/garth

Garth Brooks Releases ‘Man Against Machine’ Album Cover

garth brooks

Yesterday, Garth Brooks revealed the new album cover for his country music comeback. Man Against Machine will have the lead single “People Loving People” on it. I must say, it’s a bit Chris Gaines-ish in appearance. It certainly doesn’t look like the fun-loving Garth that’s been all over the Las Vegas scene and recent tour stops.

Music has always been a reflection of where mankind is at the time. For 14 years, I have watched heart and soul, dreams and individualism, fighting for their very existence in a world of increasing technology. This album is a reminder to all those who dream, work, and fight for what they believe; do not give up your vision,” said Garth Brooks.

Fans can pre-order the album at garthbrooks.com and ghosttunes.com. In addition to the album, fans can order an additional mega bundle including all eight iconic studio albums digitally updated, the new double live 25th Anniversary Edition featuring 30 songs along with 30 videos, an instant download of the new single, “People Loving People” and the bonus track, “Send ‘Em On Down The Road.”

What do you think of the album cover?
