This spectacular concert event will take place Thursday, July 12 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.  Information regarding tickets will be released on Tuesday, April 10 at noon.


“Garth Brooks has a long history with Calgary,” says Paul Rosenberg, vice-president Programming, Calgary Stampede.  “We are thrilled to have him here during our Centennial year.  Garth is a country music legend; to have him perform at the Centennial Calgary Stampede is incredible.”
