So you missed out on your chance on May 17th to get your tickets to Garth Brooks. You should count yourself lucky, because as I’ve been telling you since March, Garth was going to do more than one show here in Boise and he officially added a second show for Friday night July 19th and tickets to that show go on sale Friday morning (5/31/19) at 10 a.m. sharp! It’s only the second stop on his stadium tour that he’s performed more than one night The other was in Minneapolis. It should be noted that the second shows were added only after the governor of each state made a personal call to Garth to ask…or rather beg that he add a second show. Thank you Governor Little.
So we have our second show and you want to make sure you don’t get screwed out of getting tickets, so I’m going to lay out a few tips to make sure you have the best chance at getting tickets to his final show, or in this case his official first show.
First and most importantly, don’t do a Google search for Garth Brooks unless you want to pay three or four hundred dollars for your ticket from a scalper.
According to the Idaho Statesman, there are only three official ways to buy your tickets.
#1 Go to www.ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks. You can begin logging on at 9 a.m. to join the waiting room, where you will be in line to buy your tickets when they go on sale at 10 a.m. sharp. . If you don’t already have a Ticketmaster account, do yourself a favor and sign up in advance on the Insider Tips page of the web site. It will save you a lot of time.
#2 You can call Ticketmaster Express at 1-877-654-2784. (I have a few friends that used the phone number last time and they said they had no trouble getting through to buy their tickets, however, that’s no guarantee that it will work that well this time.)
#3 You can also set up and use your Ticketmaster app on your mobile device. Get the app from your app store, like Google Playstore or the Amazon App store.
Once again, these are the only three official ways you are able to purchase tickets. There will be no tickets sold at Albertson’s Stadium , Taco Bell Arena box office or any other of the usual Ticketmaster outlets. By the way, if you’re paying more than $94.95, you’re more than likely buying your tickets from a scalper. All seats, whether, front of stage, top of the stadium or somewhere in the middle are reserved and cost the same price, which is $94.95. This includes the $74.58 ticket plus a $15 service charge and $5.37 tax.
One more important tip…the last show sold out in under an hour, so don’t wait till after 10 to sign in or call to try and buy your tickets or you’ll miss out again…I fully expect this show to also sell out in under an hour….Yes Garth is really that popular.
Good luck on purchasing your tickets and remember, if you don’t end up buying your tickets you can still win free tickets from us, just by listening to 670 KBOI.
