Oklahoma country music superstar Garth Brooks has beaten his personal record for tickets sold in Atlanta, according to a news release.

The record was previously set at the Omni on March 13-17, 1996, with 81,902 paid tickets. As of Saturday, the Tulsa native had surpassed that number and was still selling.

Two shows were put on sale Saturday morning to go alone with three concerts that were put on sale the previous week. Then, two more shows were added Saturday, making the longtime Owasso resident the only artist to ever sell seven consecutive shows at Philips Arena. The previous record was held by Elvis Presley, with four shows, according to the release.
The Yukon-bred superstar’s Atlanta dates are 6:30 and 10:30 p.m. Sept. 19, 6:30 and 10:30 p.m. Sept. 20, 7:30 p.m. Sept. 21, 7:30 p.m. Sept. 26 and 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27.

Tickets will cost $56.94, plus $4.56 tax, a $4 facility fee and a $6 service charge, totaling $71.50. There is a six-ticket limit. They can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com, (800) 745-3000 or Ticketmaster Express (866} 448-7849. Please note there will be no sales at the venue box office or Ticketmaster outlets.
