– Garth Brooks' plans to start pre-selling vinyl copies of "LEGACY" went awry on Tuesday, due to "a massive overload," according to Brooks' website.
He said he would reschedule the sale for this Thursday. "How do I say how grateful I am for the demand, while apologizing for the frustration people were going through. We're gonna try this again on Thursday," said Brooks.
"Everybody's been taking about vinyl," Brooks said in a live online chat on Facebook on Monday. The LEGACY package will come in three different configurations - analog (the original recording), remix/remaster and a limited package with both. The release contains bonus tracks.
Each boxed set contains seven vinyl discs along with accompanying CDs of "No Fences," "The Chase," "In Pieces," "Fresh Horses" and the recently released "Triple Live" album.
The cover features an astronaut on the moon with fans at a Brooks concert superimposed on the shield. The box sets will not b eshipped until Nov. 1.
"Due to a massive overload before the on-sale even began, Garth Brooks Talk Shop Live special for LEGACY never launched," he said on his website.
"The good news is absolutely NO numbers were given out."
The vinyl sets will start going on sale at 7 p.m. eastern time on Thursday. Fans pre-ordering all three of the LEGACY packages are being given the option to reserve their number, which will be printed on their edition.
Those watching will get to see behind the scenes at his first rehearsal for the stadium tour.
