Ticket sales continue to be brisk for the third Garth Brooks concert Saturday, so much so that a fourth show has been added for Thursday, Dec. 8.
Promoter Ron Gibson said by phone Saturday that “we sold out two shows in record time and a lot of people were concerned about third party tickets and so forth. Garth Brooks, being the person that he is, was watching the Twitter feed and all that, and he came to us and he said that if Hawaii wants more shows, let’s give them more.
“So we put the third show on sale this morning, and shortly after, we got the go-ahead to put on a fourth show.
“We were amazed that an artist of this stature supports our efforts and rise to the occasion,” Gibson said.
All concert proceeds are being donated to the Pacific Historic Parks that will dispersed to four historic organizations with the mission of preserving the legacy of Pearl Harbor: WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument (USS Arizona Memorial), Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and Battleship Missouri Memorial.
This is the first time Brooks will be performing in the islands. The country music legend and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, will be performing at the Blaisdell Arena to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Ticket sales for Brooks’ first two shows frustrated for many fans who tried to buy tickets as soon as they were available on Saturday and said they couldn’t get any. Organizers told KHON2 that they did not notice any suspicious activity.
The tickets for the third and fourth shows are being distributed in the same method as the first two concerts.
