On May 18, Garth performed in front of more than 75,000 fans at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, making it the biggest ticketed show in the history of the Steel City, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The previous record was set during the Pitt vs. Penn State football game in 2016 with 69,983 tickets sold.

The Pittsburgh show follows Garth’s previously sold-out concerts in St. Louis, Glendale, Gainseville and Minneapolis (x2). Upcoming sold-out shows include Denver (June 8), Eugene (June 29) and Boise (July 20).

Garth’s two-plus-hour set in Pittsburgh featured more than 20 of his hits, as well as a few covers, including Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” and George Strait’s “Amarillo, By Morning.”
