Garth Brooks Breaks Ticketmaster
Garth Brooks‘ global comeback tour tickets are proving to be a very hot commodity — more so than even Ticketmaster was prepared for.
Tickets for the legend’s Sept. 19 and 20 shows in Atlanta went on sale Friday (Aug. 8) morning and, of course, sold out quickly. But when tickets for a third concert went on sale shortly after, fans ran into trouble in trying to purchase, as the website failed. Sales were suspended as a result.
“At this point I can’t say anything,” Brooks tells an Atlanta radio station about when tickets will be made available (quote via Online Athens). “What I want to say to you is we’re going to do it right next time and I don’t know why it’s taking so long for anything to happen.”
The singer is aware that hours after the tickets went on sale, people still weren’t able to get seats. “Ticketmaster will figure this out and tell me,” Brooks says. “Tell (the fans) for me that I love them to pieces … I don’t feel like we were prepared.”
“I say we need to take a break and regroup,” the singer assures, “because if we get a second shot we can’t … mess that up.”
Don’t worry, Atlanta — Garth Brooks has your back.
