Country megastar Garth Brooks is the first non-football event announced for the $2 billion, 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium.

Brooks known for hits like “Friends in Low Places” and “Thunder Roll” is scheduled to play the Raiders’ new home Aug. 22 as part of his stadium tour.

Raiders President Marc Badain said the team welcomes Brooks as one of the first events to take place at the team’s soon-to-be-home, hinting it is just the beginning of what the multi-purpose stadium will attract to the Las Vegas Valley.

“As the stadium gets closer to completion, the excitement around the opening is growing every day,” Badain said. “Bringing one of the world’s greatest entertainers here this summer is indicative of the type of event Allegiant Stadium will host for decades to come.”

Tickets for the concert go on sale at 10 a.m. March 13 and are $94.95. There is an eight ticket limit.

Fans can purchase tickets next week on Ticketmaster’s website, via Ticketmaster’s Garth Brooks Line at 1-800-654-2784 or via the Ticketmaster mobile app.

Brooks is no stranger to Las Vegas, having a residency at Wynn running from 2009 to 2014. Brooks played T-Mobile Arena in 2016.

The concert marks the earliest known event at Allegiant Stadium, slated to be substantially complete July 31. The first football game with a set date is UNLV’s 2020 regular season opener versus Pac-12 team California set for Aug. 29.

With the stadium expected to host up to 46 events annually, including Raiders and UNLV football home games, more announcements leading up to the stadium’s opening should be expected.
