Garth Brooks is no stranger to breaking records, and it’s something he’s certainly gotten used to during his current World Tour.
It seems like no matter where Brooks goes, he ends up breaking old ticket sales records for the venues he’s set to appear at. In fact, many of the records he’s broken were set by Brooks himself the last time he performed at the various venues.
Tickets for Brooks’ concert stops sell out so fast that he often decides to add more shows to his stops in certain cities, such as Columbus, Louisville, and more recently, Des Moines.
Brooks originally had only one concert scheduled in Des Moines at the Wells Fargo Arena, but due to fan demand, he ended up adding five more shows to his stop in the city. The tickets continued to sell at lightning speed, and on Monday, the Iowa Events Center announced that all six concerts have been sold out.
In total, Brooks sold 88,000 tickets to his concerts in Des Moines, which take place in late April and early May. The news means that Brooks crushed his old ticket sales record for the state, when he sold 42,391 tickets 20 years ago in 1996.
The 88,000 ticket holders to Brooks’ concerts in DesMoines are in for a show they’ll never forget. Tune in below to watch Brooks perform “Friends In Low Places” during a tour stop in Chicago in 2014.
Congratulations to Brooks on breaking his sales record in Des Moines!
