Garth Brooks sold more than 85,000 tickets in 59 minutes for five upcoming concerts in Los Angeles. Although he was previously scheduled for only one concert, Brooks will now perform two shows on Jan. 25 (6 p.m. and 10 p.m.) and three shows on Jan. 26 (1 p.m., 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.) at the Staples Center. All proceeds from the concert will benefit recent fire victims and firefighters in California. “It’s a beautiful thing when everyone pulls together,” Brooks said. “California just raised a ton of money for their own. I’m so proud to be part of this.”
