– Tickets for the second city on Garth Brooks' 2014 world tour went on sale this morning in Atlanta and the number of shows quickly went from one to three.
Brooks started with a 6:30 p.m. show on Sept. 19 and soon added a 10:30 p.m. show that night and a 6:30 p.m. show on Sept. 20.
As of 5:15 p.m., only single tickets were available for all three shows.

Brooks will start his tour in Chicago on Sept. 4 and play 10 shows. His wife, Trisha Yearwood, will open the shows.
