After selling out his Charlotte, NC, show in 90 minutes, Garth Brooks will have to wait for the fall after he delayed his stadium tour yet again.
According to Brooks’ official website, Charlotte ticket holders will have to wait until Sept. 25 for the concert. While Brooks didn’t release an official statement regarding the postponement, his first three attempts to play Charlotte were nixed due to the pandemic.
Brooks initially scheduled the concert for May 2, 2020, but was then moved to Jun. 13, then Oct. 10 of 2020. He later pushed it back to Apr. 10, 2021, just before this latest schedule change.
This marks Brooks’ second postponement of the year, when he deferred his Feb. 27 show in Las Vegas to July 10. His next scheduled performance is scheduled for May 1 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Brooks’ fans are eager for the concert as he’s expected to bring more than 70,000 fans to the stadium, making it the largest public concert gathering in the US since the start of the pandemic.
