Garth Brooks Special Comeback Shows Sell Out in 90 Minutes
It only took 90 minutes for country icon Garth Brooks to sell out all three dates of his Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event.
Brooks will play three shows at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland this summer, and all 240,000 tickets were moved in the hour-and-a-half frame. The shows are scheduled for Friday, July 25, Saturday, July 26 and Sunday, July 27.
Clearly, Brooks' comeback is being embraced all over the world. The icon's sellouts mark the first time that an artist has sold out three dates booked at Croke Park in a single day. Only two shows were booked at first, but a third show was quickly organized on Thursday morning (Jan. 30) after the others were filled to capacity.
Brooks' manager, Bob Doyle, commented on the news, saying, "We're thrilled. Peter Aiken, his team and Ticketmaster have done an amazing job."
Concert promoter Aiken himself adds, "In 52 years of business, this is the fastest selling concert Aiken Promotions have ever been involved in."
That's what we call supply and demand. Ticketmaster was reportedly down or slow for many users overseas at the time of the on-sale.
Brooks announced he would be embarking on a 2014 World Tour back in December. He is also booked to appear on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,' helping to send the host off into the sunset before Jimmy Fallon takes over. It's not even February yet and already Garth Brooks' 2014 is pretty amazing.
