Garth Brooks is making some noise yet again. He will be playing a very special concert at the 100 Year Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede on July 12. Tickets went on sale last Saturday (4/14) and the show was sold out within one minute.
According to the Calgary Herald, 15,322 tickets were sold out in just 58 seconds, a record for the Calgary Stampede. After tickets were sold on the main site many went to Stubhub and Ebay where the tickets were going for outrageous prices considering the original $62 price tag.
“One pair of floor seats were going for $4,986 and another three for $7,480 on eBay,” reported the Calgary Sun.
According to Garth’s publicist Nancy Seltzer, “We did our best to control the situation and allow as many fans to participate as possible by limiting it to six tickets per person.”
