ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess) — Garth Brooks has added a spate of new dates for Atlanta after Ticketmaster was forced to suspended sales of tickets for the first round after their website became overloaded by customer demand.
Brooks extended his stay at Atlanta's Phillips Arena with additional shows added on Sept. 20 and Sept. 21. The first announced show in Atlanta is set for Sept. 19th.
Atlanta is the second city announced for Brook's upcoming international tour, with Chicago also set for 10 shows by the country star.
Tickets for the Atlanta dates go on sale on August 16th, with a limit of 6 tickets per customer in an effort to limit scalping.
“I couldn’t ask for a better partner,” Brooks said. “Ticketmaster’s scalper screening system is a wonderful idea … with that said, all I saw were tickets on every scalping site and the people that just wanted to come to the show could not get in. The folks at Ticketmaster were totally devoted to achieving our mutual goal …. that the on-sale this Saturday runs faster and creates an easier process for people who want to come to the show.” – Staff Writers
