Garth Brooks concert chronology

Garth Brooks: Live in Kansas City is a series of concerts held by American country pop singer Garth Brooks in 2007. Among the first concerts held at the newly opened Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, the nine-show series were Brooks' first multi-concert performances since his 1996–98 world tour.

Background[edit]

In late 2007, Garth Brooks was slated to release The Ultimate Hits, a compilation and Brooks' first album featuring new music since 2001.[1] The album release coincided with Sprint Center's opening, prompting Brooks' agreement to one promotional concert; however, ticket demand was extremely high, resulting in an additional eight concerts added.[2] All concerts, consisting of nearly 160,000 tickets, sold out in less than two hours.[1]

The final concert of the series, held on November 14, 2007, was simulcast live via National CineMedia on more than 300 movie theaters throughout the United States.[3]
