The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour is coming to Lincoln.

This will be the first concert at Memorial Stadium in 12 years, dating back to a Larry the Cable Guy show on July 4, 2009. The last musical performance at Memorial Stadium was Farm Aid III in 1987.

Tickets will be on sale at 10 a.m. May 21 and will cost $94.95 each. The concert will have in-the-round seating with an eight-ticket limit per purchase. Tickets can be purchased:

  • Through the Ticketmaster app on mobile devices.

Fans should be aware there will be no ticket sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets.

“This is an exciting day for Nebraska and the City of Lincoln,” Bill Moos, athletic director, said. “We have looked long and hard for the past year at several options to boost the local and state economy. The opportunity to partner with Garth Brooks for a show at Memorial Stadium was a no-brainer. This concert will have Lincoln buzzing, provide a great kickoff to the fall and benefit the University, City of Lincoln and State of Nebraska.”

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour began in March 2019 and has broken attendance records at every stop on the tour, and will have a major economic impact on Lincoln and the surrounding area.

“Nebraska Athletics is proud to bring an event of this magnitude to Memorial Stadium,” Garrett Klassy, senior deputy athletic director said. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch one of the most iconic entertainers of our lifetime perform in one of the most storied venues in the United States. There is no doubt that the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour at Memorial Stadium will be a highly coveted ticket and be a memorable night in Lincoln.”

The University of Nebraska continues to work with the Lincoln Lancaster County Health Department and will follow all local COVID protocols.
