Only a lucky few were able to secure tickets to Garth Brooks‘ back-to-back shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium next month, but there might still be hope. The country music superstar hints he might add more shows, after more than 22,000 people tried unsuccessfully to get tickets after they went on sale.
“I am stunned at the number of people who showed up for this on sale, and as happy as I should be, I feel bad for the people who did not get tickets,” Brooks says. “We have already talked to the Opry House and we are starting on a plan to take care of as many as we can who did not get tickets. I still can’t believe it.”

It’s no surprise that the Ryman tickets sold out quickly, since the show will not be filled to capacity. All COVID regulations, including requiring proof of receiving the COVID vaccine, or a recent negative test, will be in place as well.
Brooks hinted about the show on his Inside Studio G Facebook series, adding that he would be playing with someone he is “very, very lucky to get to be playing with.” But he also said he was looking forward to letting his career take a backseat, so his wife, Trisha Yearwood, could fulfill her dreams.
“I’m also married to someone who’s ten times more talented than me that wants to maybe take a look at Broadway, do some of this other stuff too,” Brooks said. “So, I want to be fair to her as her partner, but if I could do a residency like The Wynn show again, I would do it in a heartbeat. I had such a good, good time … What would be fun would be to somehow do a residency in Vegas and in Nashville, because they got great places to play here.”
