Garth Brooks celebrated in high style this weekend in Canada to mark the sale of the five millionth ticket sold to his “Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood.” The celebration commemorated Brooks breaking his own record of selling five million tickets in 100 cities during his 1996-1998 tour; this time around, Brooks hit the mark in only 60 cities.
The Rogers Place Arena hung a banner from its rafters to celebrate the milestone, and the banner will remain there hanging alongside championship banners of the Edmonton Oilers. Brooks was also presented with two plaques honoring the monumental ticket sales figures. Additionally, Garth was greeted from the stage by a video message from hockey legend Wayne Gretzky congratulating him on the accomplishment.
Additionally, TMZ reported that Brooks rewarded the five millionth ticket holder with celebratory prizes of their own. The lucky couple received a Lexus SUV, a Nissan truck, a $5,000 Amazon shopping spree, a $5,000 Edmonton Mall spree and a trip for two to the Wynn Las Vegas.
