Garth Brooks Adds Buffalo Stop to Stadium Tour

Garth Brooks has added a stop at the home of the NFL's Buffalo Bills to his ongoing Stadium Tour.

Brooks will make his Highmark Stadium debut on Sat., July 23. It'll be Brooks' first appearance in Buffalo, N.Y. in seven years and his final Stadium Tour stop in New York, Ontario and Pennsylvania.

Tickets for Brooks' Highmark Stadium date go on sale on Fri., May 20 at 10 a.m. EST via the Ticketmaster website, its mobile app and its Brooks hotline: 877-654-2784. There's an eight-ticket per customer limit.

In other news, Brooks made up for the swift sellout last Friday (May 6) of his June 25 appearance at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Ontario by adding a June 24 date at the same venue.

Tickets for Brooks' second Edmonton date go on sale this Thursday (May 12) via Ticketmaster.

The June 25 date at Commonwealth Stadium —audience capacity 61,000— sold out in 45 minutes.

"Talked to Ticketmaster and they said a LOT of you never got in to even look for tickets...and tens of thousands of you were still in the waiting room when it sold out," Brooks tweeted. "Let me see what the options are, please."

As of now, June 24-25 will be the only Canadian stops on Brooks' Stadium Tour.

2022 Stadium Tour Stops

Brooks kicked off his 2022 slate with back-to-back nights (Feb. 4-5) in Las Vegas at the 5,200-capacity Dolby Live at Park MGM. It fell on the weekend before Brooks turned 60 on Feb. 7, making the Vegas dates an early birthday celebration.

Upcoming stadium tour dates bring Brooks to Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati (May 13), Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. (May 21), Protective Stadium in Birmingham, Ala. (June 4), Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. (July 15-16) and AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas (July 30).

Garth in Ireland

Brooks recently added two shows at Ireland's Croke Park to his ongoing stadium tour. The concerts, scheduled for Sept. 9 and Sept. 10, 2022, mark Brooks' return to Ireland after he had to cancel several dates there eight years ago during his World Tour.

The Stadium Tour

The country legend first announced his three-year Stadium Tour back in Oct. 2018.

"I wanted to call it the big-ass stadium tour, but they voted me down on that one," Brooks joked at a 2018 press conference. "It was going to be a college tour, but because of the cities — how they worked out — there are going to be some professional stadiums in there as well."

The opening date on the tour was on March 9, 2019 in St. Louis at The Dome at America's Center. Twelve more dates followed in 2019, highlighted by a two-night stand at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis (May 3-4).

Things didn't go according to plan in 2020, with Brooks playing just one stadium stop— a Feb. 22 date at Ford Field in Detroit—before the COVID-19 pandemic halted widespread touring.

The country superstar said that in planning the tour, it was important to make each show a unique experience.

"This one is going to be so special, so rare, so far apart," Brooks said. "Very individual. Very unique."

He added that his goal will be to "turn the arena into a honky tonk," making each show an incredible experience for everyone in attendance.

Brooks said he wants to encourage fans to treat the shows as a "game day" and show up to the concert wearing team colors.
