Garth Brooks speaks to the media at Neyland Stadium on Friday, November 15, 2019, ahead of his Saturday night concert at the stadium in Knoxville.

Fans gobbled up Garth Brooks tickets in about 90 minutes Friday morning — and gave the country star a Ford Field record in the process.

More than 70,000 concertgoers will be on hand for the Feb. 22 show, Brooks' publicist announced this afternoon. It's an all-time mark for a single concert at the Detroit Lions' stadium.

Brooks is aided by his in-the-round configuration, which will position his stage at center field — rather than at one end of the stadium, as with most Ford Field concerts.
