Garth Brooks had a busier holiday week than most. The country singer headlined nine, sold-out benefit concerts in Nashville between December 16 and 22, bringing as much as $10 million of revenue for the city.
Victims of the devastating May flood will receive $3 million from the proceeds of Brooks’ ticket sales, which broke records in Tennessee. The concerts at Bridgestone Arena were his first performances in the city in more than a decade.
"The feeling is so good that money can't buy this," Brooks told The Boot.
“I want to do this tour one more time, and she has said yes," he said. Unfortunately, “the tour won't happen for a few years.”
Right now you can find Brooks performing in Las Vegas at Wynn’s Encore Theater 15 weeks a year, although ticket sales recently jumped from $125 to $225 due to a high demand.
