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.
