Garth Brooks has friends — in Winnipeg.
After announcing the addition of a fourth show in Winnipeg, Brooks now holds the record for most tickets sold for a concert event at the MTS Centre.
In one hour and nine minutes, Brooks sold over 46,500 tickets, beating Elton John’s previous record of 33,500 tickets.
“It’s an incredible honour to have a spot on Garth’s World Tour and we’re thrilled the market responded the way they did,” True North’s Kevin Donnelly said in a statement.
There will now be one show on Friday, June 17 at 7 p.m., two shows on Saturday, June 18 at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., and a final show on Sunday, June 18 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $79.98 after taxes and service fees and are still available at Ticketmaster.
