El Paso, TX (KTSM) - Country superstar Garth Brooks added multiple concert dates in addition to the first April 8th 7 p.m. show he announced two weeks ago and ended up breaking multiple ticket sales records in Las Cruces in less than 40 minutes.
The tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. MST and quickly sold out multiple shows, prompting promoters-- and Garth himself-- to add multiple dates. There are five concerts planned: Friday, April 7 at 7 p.m., Sunday April 8th at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., Sunday April 9th at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
According to promoters, ticket sales were so strong on Ticketmaster.com that they sold over 39,000 tickets in less than 40 minutes. This breaks his previous Las Cruces record in 1996 when he sold 24,549 tickets.
This is the only New Mexico tour date for Garth Brooks' World Tour with his wife, Tricia Yearwood.
Tickets for all shows went on sale at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.com. There is a strict 8 ticket limit. The price for all tickets are $74.98 including taxes and fees. They are on a first come first serve basis. Concert promoters say there are still a limited number of seats available.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
