LOS ANGELES, November 6, 2010– Garth Brooks, the number one selling solo artist in U.S. history continues to rewrite records by selling out nine concerts at The Bridgestone Arena this morning. This is the first time any perfomer sold that many tickets ever in the state of Tennessee. Michael Jackson held the previous record of 72,000 in Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee.
“A very special thanks to Ben Farrell, country radio, the great people at Ticketmaster and everyone who helped with the onsale…and most of all the people who showed up to get tickets. It’s great to be a part of the healing” said Brooks.
Brooks announced the concert on October 28th alongside Governor Phil Bredesen, Senator Lamar Alexander, Senator Bob Corker, Congressman Jim Cooper, Congressman Marsha Blackburn, Mayor Karl Dean and Ellen Lehman, President of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, with the hope of bringing renewed attention to the needs of the victims of the Tennessee floods.
The tickets were $25.00 (plus a $2.50 user fee and $5.00 service charge) with 100% of the proceeds going to the Community Foundation Tennessee Flood Relief.
As past of his unprecedented appearance, the legendary performer will play nine full concerts in six days when he appears on December 16, 17, 19, 20, 21 and 22 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
