– Tickets will go on sale Saturday for Garth Brooks' Nov. 14 concert in Kansas City, but the Ticketmaster web site made it clear that this is a restricted concert - you have to live in Missouri, Kansas or portions of Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma to be able to attend.
Residency will be based on credit card billing address, according to Ticketmaster. Orders by residents outside specified areas will be cancelled without notice and refunds given.
In the event that "exceptional ticket demand warrants the scheduling of additional Kansas City concert performances, additional regions and states will be opened for ticket sales," Ticketmaster said.
Tickets will not be mailed before Oct. 11. All seats at the new Sprint Center are $27.50.
