Tickets for Garth Brooks' Dec. 17 Nashville flood benefit on sale Saturday

Garth Brooks Staples 1-2008 
Tickets for Garth Brooks’ show Dec. 17 in Nashville go on sale Saturday at 8 a.m. Pacific time (11 a.m. Eastern time). The show at the Bridgestone Arena is a benefit, with proceeds going to ongoing relief and recovery efforts in the wake of the massive flooding in the country music capital and across central Tennessee in May.

Tickets for the show are priced at $25 and will be available at www.ticketmaster.com, by charge line at 800-745-3000 or through Ticketmaster Express 866-448-7849. In addition to the face value price, each ticket will have a $2.50 user fee plus a  $5 service charge for a total cost of $32.50. For those buying tickets in or around Tennessee, priority wristbands will be distributed Thursday and Friday. Full details are on Brooks' website.

Brooks told The Times last week that additional performances might be added if demand warrants more shows. Unlike his solo acoustic engagement at Steve Wynn’s Encore Theater in Las Vegas, Brooks will have his full band with him for his first concert in Nashville since 1998.

I have tried to get tickets for Nashville. I live in Colorado, does anyone have suggestions?

Some of Nashville's stars like Amy Grant, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Pam Tillis, and Vince Gill have stepped up and donated their own guitars that were affected by the Nashville floods.The instruments are up for auction at http://www.nash2o.org, and all of the proceeds go towards ongoing Nashville Flood Relief.

Brad Paisley's rare Crook Electric:

They have tickets on stubhub.com....Also if you type in Garth Brooks tickets in google it should be able to pull up other websites that you can get them from. I got mine stubhub and within 48 hours I had them printed and in my hands.
