Garth Brooks Adds Four Shows to Wichita Tour Stop
The last time Garth Brooks played in Wichita, Kan., he sold an impressive 51,000 tickets. On Friday, he sold more than that in the first hour tickets went on sale for two dates scheduled in December. As a result, four more dates have been added.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Brooks sold 65,000 tickets in 60 minutes on Friday morning (Oct. 23). The original shows were scheduled for Dec. 4 and Dec. 5, both at 7PM. The new shows will come Dec. 3, Dec. 5 at 10:30PM, and Dec. 6 at 3PM and 7:30PM. Trisha Yearwood will open all four shows. The matinee show on Sunday is unusual for this tour, but two shows in one night certainly is not.
When the world tour first began in Chicago, it wasn’t unusual for cities to need six or seven shows to satisfy ticket demand, but recent tour stops have included just two shows. Kansas has also been a big state for the singer, but it’s the first time he’s played the city of Wichita since 1997.
The world tour is expected to last three years, if the singer’s initial predictions hold true. So far, all tour stops have been in the United States. He’s yet to venture into Canada or Europe with songs from the Man Against Machine album.
Brooks is nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards on Nov. 4. As of now he's not performing, but the full list has yet to be revealed.
