Garth Brooks decided one show in Atlanta wasn’t enough so two more shows have been added so he could extend his stay. Radio.com reported on August 8, 2014 that Brooks will follow up his original tour stop with Trisha Yearwood that is set to happen at 6:30 PM EST on September 19, 2014 with two more shows.
The second tour stop in Atlanta will happen with a second show following up at 10:30 PM EST on September 19, 2014. Brooks also added a third performance on his Atlanta stop taking place on September 20, 2014 at 6:30 PM EST at Philips Arena. Tickets for the Atlanta performances are being sold through Ticketmaster with a six ticket limit per purchase.
Brooks announced Chicago as the first city he would be bringing his world tour with one date scheduled to happen at the Allstate Arena. Brooks continued to add tour dates and times for Chicago after tickets went on sale leading up to a total of ten performances scheduled for his time in Chicago.
Brooks will kick things off at the Allstate Arena in Chicago beginning September 4, 2014 following up with the second show on September 5, 2014. Brooks will put on a double performance for his fans September 6, 2014 and make his return to the Allstate Arena stage on September 11, 2014 pulling double duty once again on September 13, 2014. Brooks will wrap up his Chicago stops on September 14, 2014.
Chicago was very good to Brooks with his fans snapping up 180,000 tickets within the first three hours they went on sale and are continuing to sell leading to a new record for Brooks. The first stop for Brooks at Allstate Arena broke his personal record for ticket sales in North America in a single city.
The Chicago concert outsold the amount of tickets sold for his October run in 1998 in Minneapolis. That record was set when fans purchased 162,822 tickets to see Brooks live. Brooks has been announcing his tour stops one city at a time instead of releasing the entire list upfront keeping his fans on the edge of their seats waiting to see if their city will make it onto his list of world tour stops.
