Rice-Eccles Stadium will host Utah’s first major concert event in 2021 with The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour. Launched in March of 2019, The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour has broken stadium attendance records at every stop on the tour so far.

 

This will be the first solo-artist concert at Rice-Eccles Stadium in 10 years. The band U2 performed in the stadium on May 24, 2011, as part of the U2360 tour.

 

Tickets will be available for purchase Thursday, May 6, 2021, at 10 a.m. MDT. The all-inclusive tickets cost $94.95 each. *PURCHASER ASSUMES COVID-19 RISK AND ALL COVID-19 RULES APPLY.

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour has been lauded as the best-selling country music tour of 2019, according to Pollstar. In 2017, Brooks finished the three-and-a-half-year long Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood. The tour sold more than 6.3 million tickets, making it the biggest North American tour in history and the biggest American tour in the world.

 

While Utah’s statewide mask mandate lifted on April 10, 2021, the University of Utah and Rice-Eccles Stadium currently still require use of face coverings. Stadium staff will assist in the implementation and execution of safety protocols and work alongside an on-site medical team that will stand by in the event of an emergency.

 

About Garth Brooks
Garth Brooks is the seven-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, a first for any artist. He is also the first and only artist in history to receive nine Diamond Awards for the now nine albums certified by the RIAA at over 10 million album sales each. He remains the No. 1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, certified by the RIAA with 157 million album sales. Brooks was just named one of the five artists that will receive a Kennedy Center Honor this year. Last March, Brooks received the esteemed Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. The event aired on PBS. He has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow on an artist.

 

In November, just after receiving the Billboard Music Icon Award, Brooks released two new albums, his 12th studio album, “FUN” and live album “Triple Live Deluxe.”

 

After the success of “Garth & Trisha Live!” during prime time on CBS in April, CBS also aired “Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event,” in December. Both specials featured Brooks and Yearwood taking song requests through Facebook, live from their studio, Allentown, in Nashville.

 

In November of 2019, A&E aired “Garth Brooks: The Road I’m On,” over two consecutive nights. Part of their esteemed “Biography” franchise, the documentary offered an intimate look at Brooks life as a musician and father over his entire career.

 

In January 2020, Billboard announced that Brooks was the first artist to make it on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in the 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s and now 20s. Brooks debuted “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)” in 1989. Now, with “Dive Bar,” a duet he sang with Blake Shelton, he makes his appearance on the list in 2020. The single inspired a DIVE BAR tour to dive bars in country music capitals around the country which will continue its run of stops through 2022.

 

Last year, Brooks went vinyl with his meticulously curated vinyl package, LEGACY. This career-defining collection includes No Fences, The Chase, In Pieces, Fresh Horses and Triple Live, plus CDs with bonus tracks for a total of seven vinyl albums and seven CDs in each edition.

 

Brooks also has Inside Studio G, a weekly Facebook Live series. It airs every Monday on his Facebook page at 7 p.m. EST.
