In just under one hour, more than 80,000 tickets to Garth Brooks' charity gig next year were grabbed by eager fans.
Garth Brooks' good favor was returned by fans who snapped his tickets in light speed, his official site revealed. The country singer is holding a charity concert for wildfires victims and when the tickets were sold on Saturday, December 1, it was sold out in an hour.
Revenues from the 85,677 sold tickets which cost $45 apiece will aid Californian wildfires relief campaign that includes funding fire departments in the state and future fire prevention programs. The concert will take place at Los Angeles' Staples Center on January 26, 2008.
"I'm flattered they've asked, and I'm honored to accept," the country singer said previously. "This is going to take a team effort like nothing I have ever been a part of before."
Brooks has a record of selling his concert tickets in relatively short time range. His 9-date concert tickets, which is approximately 160,000 pieces, in Kansas City were snapped within two hours.
