FARGO -- The top drawing act in Fargodome history is coming back to hang out with some “Friends in Low Places.”
Garth Brooks announced he will play the venue May 7 at 7 p.m. He will be joined by his wife, singer Trisha Yearwood.
Brooks’ five Fargodome shows, in 1993 and ’98, are all in the building’s top 10 in attendance, each drawing more than 22,500. The biggest was 26,228 in 1993. The three-day series in ’98 was the building’s top grossing event, bringing in $229,643.
Brooks retired from touring from 2000 to 2014, but since returning to the road, the multi-platinum-selling singer has played sporadic dates, mostly weekends around the country. In the fall of 2014, he played an 11-show stand at Minneapolis’ Target Center that sold more than 200,000 tickets, a record at the time for him.
At his most recent show, Feb. 28, in Worcester, Mass., the singer played nearly 30 songs, going back to his first single, “Much too Young (to Feel this Damn Old)” off his self-titled 1989 debut. He played only two songs from his latest release, 2014’s “Man Against Machine.”
Brooks has long been known for his energetic concerts and according to reviews of that Worcester show, he and the band ran up and down the stage playing to the crowd. He even took requests from the audience toward the end of the show, playing a mix of originals and covers from Bob Seger and Billy Joel.
At that show, Yearwood played four of her own songs in the middle of the concert.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m., Friday, March 18. There will be an eight ticket limit per purchase. Tickets can only be purchased at FARGODOME.com/Garth or by calling 1-844-4-GarthB (1-844-442-7842). There will be no ticket sales at the venue box office March 18.
