The Lou is showing Garth Brooks some serious love. Brooks blasted away his own impressive 18-year-old record of 58,729 tickets sold back when he performed at St. Louis’ Kiel Center in 1996. Because of demand for tickets, Garth Brooks added two more shows to his St. Louis world tour stop. Thank goodness, because the Scottrade Center’s capacity for concerts stands at 22,000. The country icon will be performing December 4th through 7th along with fellow country star and wife, Trisha Yearwood!
I am lucky enough to attend Saturday’s scheduled concert and can only hope that Garth Brooks includes “Rodeo,” “The Thunder Rolls,” “Friends In Low Places,” and “If Tomorrow Never Comes” along with his new tunes such as “People Loving People.” That would be a dream realized in my book.
