Garth Brooks accepts the award for entertainer of the year at the 53rd annual CMA Awards at Bridgestone Arena, Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019, in Nashville, Tenn.

The full-fledged arrival of Allegiant Stadium as a Las Vegas entertainment mega-venue has been delayed once again. Garth Brooks has rescheduled his Stadium Tour concert for a second time, pushing what was originally planned as the first concert at Allegiant to July 10. All previously purchased tickets will be honored.

The show was initially set for Aug. 22, 2020, and sold out 65,000 tickets in just 75 minutes. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the concert was rescheduled to Feb. 27. The current state-wide standards and restrictions mandate gatherings and events can only host a maximum audience of 50 people, but with vaccination efforts continuing, some speculate larger entertainment events could return to Las Vegas in late spring or summer.

Brooks, who performed last month during the inauguration ceremony of Pres. Joe Biden, previously played a wildly successful Las Vegas Strip residency engagement at Wynn Las Vegas and had been continuing his Stadium Tour since March 2019.
