Out of Respect Garth Brooks Postpones Buffalo Ticket Sales After Mass Shooting
You'll have to wait a little longer to buy tickets to see Garth Brooks at Highmark Stadium in Buffalo, New York this summer.
Tickets for the show at the home of the Buffalo Bills were supposed to go on sale Friday, May 20. Out of respect, Garth Brooks has decided to postpone the Buffalo on-sale date. The concert will still take place Saturday, July 23, 7:00 PM at Highmark Stadium.
"At some point, the healing in Buffalo will begin and the city will sing again. But for now, we pause out of respect for what the great community of Buffalo is going through, and we stand beside all of those who are hurting and confused by such an unthinkable act," said Garth Brooks.
A new on-sale date for Garth's first stadium show in Buffalo will be announced in the coming weeks.

Garth in Utica
Brooks has come a long way since opening for Kenny Rogers at the Utica Aud, a concert he remembers fondly. "It was a lot of fun. Nobody in their right mind would have given a cowboy from Oklahoma any kind of stage time in the Northeast. Kenny was so sweet to us and took us places that would have never let us in."
