“The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour” continued breaking records over the weekend, with a sold-out show Saturday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

The Oklahoma native and Country Music Hall of Famer played host to more than 75,000 fans, “it was not only the biggest concert but the biggest event in Heinz Field history, making it also the biggest ticketed show in Pittsburgh history,” according to a news release, citing the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Since launching the monumental tour, Brooks has played consecutive sell-outs, breaking attendance records in St. Louis, Missouri, at The Dome at America's Center, Glendale, Arizona, at State Farm Stadium, Gainesville, Florida, at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and two sold-out nights at Minneapolis, Minnesota’s U.S. Bank Stadium.

Upcoming shows are already sold-out in Denver, Colorado, at Mile High Stadium on June 8; in Eugene, Oregon, at Autzen Stadium on June 29; and with Boise, Idaho’s Albertsons Stadium show on July 20 selling out last Friday in less than an hour. The tour is averaging just more than 75,000 tickets in each city, according to the news release.

Brooks is known for keeping fans front of mind, and purposefully sets ticket prices below $100. Adding a refreshing dimension to Brooks’ esteemed live show experience, Darius Rucker, Midland, Chris Young, Easton Corbin and King Calaway have been surprise additions, announced just days in advance of the shows.
