Garth Brooks joins the growing list of artists who have been forced to postpone concerts due to growing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.

His upcoming concert at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC, which was originally scheduled for May 2nd, will now take place on June 13th. For this show, Brooks sold a whopping 74,000 tickets in 90 minutes. It’s reportedly the largest paid crowd in the history of Bank of America Stadium.

Additionally, Brooks‘ upcoming show at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, OH, previously scheduled for May 16th, will now be held on June 27th. This will be Brooks’ first time playing Paul Brown Stadium. On the on-sale date, the iconic entertainer sold an impressive 65,000 tickets in less than one hour.

Brooks is disappointed to postpone the shows but knows it’s the right decision.

“Like so many people right now, I just want to get back to what I do. Knowing these shows are eventually going to happen makes me happy,” the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year shared.

All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the newly scheduled dates.
