met with Ticketmaster recently and decided that he was adding two new concert dates for Atlanta. The shows will be Saturday, September 20, 10:30 PM and Sunday, September 21, 7:30 PM at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Garth said, "I couldn't ask for a better partner. Ticketmaster's scalper screening system is a wonderful idea...with that said, all I saw were tickets on every scalping site and the people that just wanted to come to the show could not get in. The folks at Ticketmaster were totally devoted to achieving our mutual goal ....that the on sale this Saturday runs faster and creates an easier process for people who want to come to the show." Tickets will be on sale this Saturday for the new shows.
