Garth Brooks Adds Another Show in Canada
Garth Brooks is so popular in Canada that he's had to add another date to his time in Edmonton.
The new concert will take place on Feb. 25 at a venue called Rogers Place as part of Brooks' World Tour with wife Trisha Yearwood. He's already scheduled for five other shows at the same location, starting Feb. 17 — an event which will mark the first time in 21 years that the country superstar has played in Edmonton. Tickets for the new Canada show are on sale Thursday (Dec. 15) at 10AM MST and are available for purchase here. Tickets are $79.98 each, with an eight ticket limit per purchase.
2016 has been a huge year for Brooks. He performed a free concert in Nashville in October in celebration of earning seven diamond-certified albums, meaning seven of his albums have sold more than 10 million copies, making him the biggest selling solo artist in music history. He also took home the coveted Entertainer of the Year trophy at the 2016 CMA Awards for the fifth time, as the first artist to do so.
In between scooping up some of the industry's highest accolades, he's also managed to put out new music. His new album Gunslinger made its debut on Nov. 25, landing at No. 4 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart in the U.S. and features the single "Baby Let's Lay Down and Dance." He's also released Garth Brooks: The Ultimate Collection, a 10-disc compilation of some of his biggest hits and special tracks from his historic career, available exclusively at Target. Additionally, he and Yearwood released their first duets album, Christmas Together, on Nov. 11.
