The ongoing Garth Brooks Stadium Tour will bring the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year to Bank of America Stadium, the home of Charlotte, N.C.'s Carolina Panthers.

The May 2nd show marks the Country Music Hall of Fame member's first time performing in Charlotte in 22 years. In addition, it's the Stadium Tour's only North Carolina or South Carolina stop.

It'll likely be the biggest country concert at the venue since Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw's Brothers of the Sun Tour stop in June 2012 drew over 44 thousand people and made over $3 million.

Brooks has been balancing North American Stadium Tour dates with his ongoing Dive Bar Tour, which concludes Dec. 2 with shows in both Mt. Laurel, NJ and Foxboro, Mass. Stadium stops include a recent date in Knoxville, Tenn. and continue in February at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich.

All-inclusive $94.95 tickets go on sale on Fri., Dec. 6 via Ticketmaster's website (ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks), its Garth Brooks line (1-877-654-2784) and the Ticketmaster App, with no ticket sales at the venue box office or at Ticketmaster outlets on the sale date. There's an eight ticket limit per purchase.

No word yet on the opening act. So far on this tour, Brooks has given young singers and established songwriters an invaluable platform by sharing the stage with King Calaway in Minneapolis, Joe Nichols in Denver, Jon Pardi in Knoxville and Midland in Pittsburgh.
