The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour will be the first major concert event at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium when the superstar country artist performs on August 22, weeks before the Las Vegas Raiders open their first NFL regular season at the $2 billion facility.

Tickets for the concert presented by Amazon Music will be on sale March 13. The performance will be set up with reserved seating and an in-the-round stage setup, with fans being able to purchase up to eight tickets while supplies last. Tickets are priced at $94.95 inclusive of all taxes and fees and can be purchased online at ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks, by phone at 877-654-2784 or on the Ticketmaster app.

Seven-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Brooks is the No. 1 selling solo artist in U.S. history with 156 million album sales. His Stadium Tour has broken attendance records at every stop so far. He last performed in Las Vegas in 2016 at T-Mobile Arena and previously played a recurring residency at Wynn’s Encore Theater from 2009 to 2014.

Substantial completion on the 65,000-seat, fully enclosed and climate controlled Allegiant Stadium is scheduled for July 31 with the first scheduled event on August 16. It will also host UNLV football this fall as well as the Pac-12 Championship Game and the Las Vegas Bowl. The stadium project is expected to generate an economic benefit of $620 million annually while creating 6,000 permanent jobs in Southern Nevada.
