Brooks was initially scheduled to perform in the capital city on August 10, and the show sold out in under an hour. Premier Scott Moe congratulated Brooks on the accomplishment.
Hey @GarthBrooks, congratulations on a 59 minute sell out show at SK's new Mosaic Stadium!— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) June 8, 2019
I will have a @SSKRoughrider's jersey waiting with your name on it.
What @GarthBrooks song is everyone wanting to hear at #GARTHinREGINA?
Shortly afterwards, Brooks announced a second date in Regina, reportedly thanks to Moe's enthusiasm. He will now also perform on August 9 at the Mosaic Stadium.
