UPDATE: The Garth Brooks drive-in concert sold out on Friday.

But those wishing to still get their hands on some tickets to the concerts around the country have another chance.

There will be a second sale of tickets Saturday starting at 11 a.m. CST. Join a waiting room up to one hour before ticket sales begin here.
"If you didn't get a ticket today, Uniiverse tells me tomorrow will run smoother! Let's make the 27th AWESOME! I love you guys and thanks for being SO patient!!! love, g" a Facebook post from Brooks on Friday reads.

A statement from organizers says that 50,000 tickets were sold in two hours, leaving 120,000 still waiting to buy when tickets sold out.

Ticketmaster said, "We had an issue today during the on sale in which fans may have received an error message during checkout; however, their order and credit card was processed, causing some fans to have duplicate tickets and charges, which are being refunded. We will be putting all the events back on sale tomorrow, Saturday at 12pm ET / 9am PT. These will be general admission tickets so don't worry, you have another chance to join us at the drive-in for a great Garth event."

In the same Facebook post, Garth Brooks said thank you to all those who bought tickets. He also said that some credit card entries were causing a mix up in which more tickets were sold to individuals purchasing them today. Those tickets were then returned leaving some available.

Garth says he takes full responsibility for the issues that some had with the buying process and understands if some are put off by trying again on Saturday.

Watch that below:

Purchases can be made here. Tickets are general admission and of limited availability. Each ticket will admit one passenger car/truck.

The show will adhere to guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as all state and local health mandates. Encore Live has partnered with leading health experts to establish procedures for staff and fans. These will include maintaining at least six feet of space between vehicles, the use of personal protective equipment by staff, leveraging contactless payment and ticketing systems, and limiting capacity in restrooms. Guidelines around concessions will also be enforced to abide by individual state regulations.
