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

esteemed live show experience, Darius Rucker, Midland, Chris Young,
