Garth Brooks Concert Expected to Set Mile High Attendance Record

DENVER (AP) – With over 80,000 people expected to attend Garth Brooks’ concert in Denver on Saturday, city officials are warning people to avoid driving to the show and having friends in “tow” places.

Paid parking at the stadium is expected to be sold out before the performance by the country star known for hits such as “Friends in Low Places.” On street parking is limited to residents with permits. Officials are urging people to consider taking mass transit, rideshares or bikes instead of driving or to park at lots farther away.

It’s expected to be the largest event with paid tickets at the stadium.

The stadium holds about 76,000 people during Broncos games, which consistently sell out, but more seating will be added on the field for the concert.
