The superstar has added another show to the event — this time at the larger Grand Ole Opry House — setting Just Garth, The Opry House and You for November 18.
Last week, Brooks put two “intimate” Music City shows on sale, telling fans they’ll hear the stories behind his groundbreaking hits in the fabled “Mother Church of Country Music.” The concerts come after Brooks decided to put his Stadium Tour on hold as COVID-19 concerns linger, and with the Ryman’s capacity of around 2,000 people, tickets for the November 19 & 20 shows instantly sold out. More than 20,000 fans couldn’t get tickets, so Brooks is trying help.
“I am stunned at the number of people who showed up for this on sale, and as happy as I should be, I feel bad for the people who did not get tickets,” Brooks says. “We spoke to the Opry House, and we want to take care of as many people as we can who did not get tickets, so we’ve added a show for the 18th. I still can’t believe it.”
Tickets for the new show will go on sale Friday, October 29, at 10 a.m. CT at Ticketmaster.com/GarthBrooks, and just like the previous shows, each ticket goes for $250 (all fees included). Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test is required for entry.
The good news means a lot more fans will get to experience a Garth Brooks show this year after all — but some will still be out of luck. About double the size of the Ryman, the Grand Ole Opry House normally holds a little more than 4,000 fans, so hopeful concertgoers had better be quick with their clicks.
