The opportunity to catch a live performance by Garth Brooks has become rarer over the years, helping to make each concert event one for the ages. Boasting one of the most successful careers in music history, don’t miss the chance to experience a performance by this country legend when he takes the stage at American Airlines Center in Dallas with Trisha Yearwood from Sept. 17-22.
Brooks broke records for both sales and concert attendance throughout the 1990s. As of 2013, his recordings continue to sell well and, according to Nielsen Soundscan, his albums sales up to May 2013 were 68,630,000, which makes him the best-selling albums artist in the United States in the SoundScan era (since 1991), a title held since 1991, well over 5 million ahead of his nearest rival, the Beatles.
According to RIAA, Brooks is the second best-selling solo albums artist in the United States of all time ahead of Elvis Presley (second to the Beatles) with 135 million units sold. Brooks is one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records.
