Garth Brooks Takes Over Pittsburgh's Heinz Field With Largest Crowd Ever

THE GARTH BROOKS STADIUM TOUR continued breaking records this weekend, executing an unforgettable sold-out show at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday (5/18.) Brooks hosted over 75,000 fans, “it was not only the biggest concert but the biggest event in Heinz Field history, making it also the biggest ticketed show in Pittsburgh history” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Since launching the monumental tour, Brooks has played consecutive sell-outs, breaking attendance records in St. Louis, MO at The Dome at America's Center, Glendale, AZ at State Farm Stadium, Gainesville, FL at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and two sold-out nights at Minneapolis, MN’s U.S. Bank Stadium. Upcoming shows are already sold-out in Denver, CO at Mile High Stadium on 6/8; Eugene, OR at Autzen Stadium on 6/29 with Boise, ID’s Albertsons Stadium show on 7/20 selling out in under an hour, averaging just over 75,000 tickets in each city.

Brooks is known for keeping fans front of mind, and purposefully sets ticket prices below $100. Adding a refreshing dimension to Brooks’ esteemed live show experience, Darius Rucker, Midland, Chris Young, Easton Corbin and King Calaway have been surprise additions, announced just days in advance of the shows.
