LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Tickets for the Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood performance at the Yum Center! on April 9 are selling fast, so promoters have added more shows. 

There will now be four shows on the following dates and times:

  • Friday, April 8, at 7:30 and 10:30 p.m. 
  • Saturday, April 9 at 7:30 and 10:30 p.m.

"He's been playing around us for the past two years but it's great for us to secure him here in Louisville,” said Dennis Petrullo, KFC Yum! Center, General Manager.

Add Brooks to a long list of big names to play the Yum! Center in recent months.

Local fans credit the arena for getting big artists, like Brooks, to Louisville.

"They've gotten quite a few big acts here recently, I think the Yum! Center is what attracts them because it's a bigger venue,” said local fan, Ray Nelson.

Karen Williams, President and CEO of the Louisville Convention Bureau, says big-name shows attract audiences from out of town.

"It's helpful in many, many aspects," she said.  "The restaurants, the hotels and just a great energy for Louisville.  People will travel 60 to 100 miles and spend the night, sometimes one or two nights."
