CHARLOTTE, N.C. — UPDATE: Due to restrictions on large gatherings because of coronavirus, Garth Brooks will play at Bank of America Stadium on June 13, 2020.
For the first time in more than 20 years, country music star Garth Brooks will return to Charlotte.
The concert is set for Saturday, May 2, 2020, at 7 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium in uptown.
Unfortunately, if you were interested in going and you don't already have a ticket, the show is sold out.
According to stadium officials, 74,000 tickets sold in 90 minutes Friday morning, making it the largest paid crowd in the history of Bank of America Stadium.
Brooks is a No. 1 selling solo artist with more than 148 million records sold, and he is a 13-time CMA-ACM Entertainer of the Year.
Billy Joel is also scheduled to play at Bank of America Stadium in the spring on April 18, 2020 -- rescheduled to April 17, 2021 due to coronavirus restrictions on large gatherings. More recently, it was just announced that Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts are scheduled to perform at the stadium on July 11, 2020.
Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper has been outspoken about bringing big events such as festivals, Major League Soccer and concerts to the stadium. He’d also like to put a retractable dome over the stadium to allow more flexibility for big events other than football games.
