Garth Brooks’ Salt Lake City stadium show sells 50,000 tickets within half an hour of going on sale

Tickets for Garth Brooks’ recently announced Salt Lake City stadium show went on sale Thursday morning at 10AM MT, and just under half an hour later, 50,000 seats at the event had been claimed.

Announced in late April, the show takes place on July 17 at the city’s Rice-Eccles Stadium, which has an audience capacity of approximately 51,444, according to the University of Utah Athletics’ official website.

As of early Thursday afternoon, fans hoping to attend the show were still able to join a queue to access tickets. However, with 50,000 tickets already spoken for, the show is likely nearly sold out.

One week before he heads to Salt Lake City, Garth has also got a Las Vegas stadium show on the books. During a recent installment of his Facebook Live series, Inside Studio G, the singer gushed about how excited he is to get back to performing live in front of fans.

“I’m just so ready to play!” he exclaimed. “I’m just ready to get out there and scream and yell and run around like a stupid kid and just have fun.”
