FARGO -- Garth Brooks has topped his previous ticket sales record at the Fargodome from 17 years ago.

Tickets for the country singer’s four upcoming Fargo concerts in May went on sale for a second time at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 24. Shortly before 11:30 a.m., Brooks’ tour officials announced more than 65,000 tickets were sold so far.

Another announcement from tour officials around 1:30 p.m. said Brooks broke his previous ticket record at the Fargodome when more than 70,613 were sold for three shows Sept. 18-20, 1998, -- which was also the last time he performed here.

The announcement means he’s sold more than 70,613 tickets so far, though exact numbers weren’t immediately available Thursday afternoon. Tickets remain on sale online at www.fargodome.com/garth or (844) 442-7842 for $74.98 after taxes and fees.

Tickets for Brooks’ originally announced show, set for 7 p.m. Saturday, May 7, went on sale Friday, March 18, and a second concert at 7 p.m. Friday, May 6, was soon added. But just 30 minutes into sales, the ticketing system was overloaded by “tremendous demand” and all sales were suspended until Thursday.

On Thursday, Brooks added two more concerts, which are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 5, and Sunday, May 8.
