Garth Brooks has invited Music City to his epic Stadium Tour showdown!
The country music mogul has added a stop at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium to his Stadium Tour show date list.
The show, set for July 31st, and will mark Brooks’ first headlining show at the home of the Tennessee Titans. The last time the Country legend took the stage at the 69,000-seat venue was during a surprise performance during the 2017 CMA Music Festival on June 8, 2017.
Since the start of his Stadium Tour in 2019, Brooks has broken arena attendance records in over 75 cities.
After having an unstoppable concert series thus far, it seems Nashville will be no exception! Fans of the “Two Pina Coladas” singer are ready to rally around Brooks and keep the sold-out momentum alive.

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee is encouraging Nashville to show out at the stadium.
“Music City is roaring back, and it’s about to be louder than ever thanks to renowned artist Garth Brooks,” said Gov. Lee. “Get your tickets, buy the boots and help us set an all-time attendance record at Nissan Stadium. Let’s show the world that Nashville is open and country music is stronger than ever before.”
With cities opening back up beyond the Coronavirus pandemic, safety measures and health protocols can be expected. In an interview with Billboard, Brooks has shared what that looks like internally, as they plan these stadium size events.
“That’s a lot of stadium expenses: The sanitization of everything, the addition of masks, the addition of hand sanitization stations,” said Brooks. “We go to the stadium and go, ‘Ok, show us your expenses there and let’s share in them because you shouldn’t be taking them all on’ but I gotta tell you, they’re going way over the top. And I’m fine with that, because if we can get to January of ’22 and not shut this thing down, then we have a good chance of finishing strong.”
However, Brooks has stated that he will not be raising ticket prices to make up for the extra costs.
“You’re either going to make an absurd amount of money or you’re going to make a lesser absurd amount of money but I can’t imagine raising the ticket prices to make sure you keep making the absurd amount of money,” said Brooks. “My thing is if we make 100% of each ticket and because of the COVID regulations and restrictions that we have to put in and pay for, we make 95%. I’m more than OK with that.”
So how does one get their hands on such coveted tickets? Fans can mark their calendars for June 25 at 10 a.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets will be available for purchase at ticketmaster.com for $94.95, including tax and fees. Customers are limited to a purchase of up to eight tickets.
