Brooks' concert begins at 7 p.m. Saturday night. 

The show sold all 80,000 tickets within 24 hours of going on sale in April, with all tickets sold for $95 each at Ticketmaster. Some tickets are available on third-party sites such as StubHub.

Ticketmaster sent out an email saying the concert is a mobile ticket only event, but later released a statement saying the email was an error. 

"Events at Bronco Stadium are usually mobile only. However, ‪tomorrow night‬’s event is not mobile only. We apologize for any confusion," the statement read.
