SALT LAKE CITY — When Garth Brooks comes to Salt Lake City this summer, his show will represent Ticketmaster’s fastest stadium ticket sell-out ever. 

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour plans to come to Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City on July 17. Over 50,000 tickets were sold in less than 30 minutes. 

It’s not the first time Garth Brooks has broken records. The number one-selling solo artist in US history, according to the RIAA, Brooks boasts 157 million album sales. He’s also won the Country Music Awards “Entertainer of the Year” award a record-breaking seven times. 

Brooks’ Rice-Eccles appearance will also be the stadium’s first concert in 10 years. 

I have an idea for a future in-depth report. How do I tell you about it?
