Garth Brooks is the first inductee into the newly formed Live Hall of Fame, which was created by Oak View Group, an investment company for the sports and live entertainment industries that acquired concert trade publication Pollstar in 2017.
OVG CEO and co-founder Tim Leiweke says the Live Hall of Fame was created “as a place to honor artists who have made a huge impact on the live business.”
Garth recently wrapped a three-year tour that sold more than 6.3 million tickets, making it the most successful North American tour by a solo artist.
