Last year, Garth Brooks put out his latest studio album Man Against Machine but it wasn’t the success that he was used to. The album did good in sales, but even the top favorite song People Loving People, received almost no airplay and earned number 19 spot on the Billboard Country Airplay Music Chart. On tour, however is another story for Garth Brooks. Since he’s announced his tour last year, in the first 6 months on tour, he grossed just under $80 million dollars in ticket sales. He was also seen by almost 1.5 million fans during that time. According to a recent interview, both Garth and the top editor for Billboard magazine confirmed that this Garth Brooks tour will probably last 3 years. Alex Gale also mentioned that the tour will probably end up breaking records set by U2 and The Rolling Stones on both gross amount tickets sold and crowd attendance. That would be some feat!
Garth Brooks just recently played in Milwaukee at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. An area in which he hasn’t visited on tour in almost twenty years. Three nights there and he packed in about 55,000 country music fans. Check out the video below of Garth Brooks being interviewed just before his Milwaukee shows. We say that Garth Brooks Rules The Road because of the speed at which his recent concerts have sold out. They’ve sold out so fast that he’s had to add multiple dates and shows to each venue he performs at. Sometimes he will play 2 concerts in one day at the same venue. He’ll do one at around 7PM and then the other one at about 10PM. You can only stay for the one concert that’s listed on your ticket though.
