Garth Brooks Is The Concert Ticket King

It’s no secret that Garth Brooks sells a lot of concert tickets but at his show in Indianapolis last night he reached quite a milestone, his six millionth ticket sold on his current “World Tour.”

“We started this [tour] thinking if we could get 50 percent of what we did in the ‘90s, we’d be very proud,” Brooks tells “Billboard.” He's certainly done that, of course, beating the milestone he set during his 1996-1998 outing of 5.35 million tickets.

Garth is expected to wind down the three-year tour in Nashville in December, but he’s isn’t necessarily counting down the days until its end. “We’re exhausted, but this thing has gotten to a frenzied state where every time you take the stage, it’s such a freaking buzz,” he says. “Every player, when those lights come up and the crowd comes up, they look fresh as daisies. I don’t think we’ve ever had more fun or sounded better.”
