Garth Brooks has exceeded his own single-city ticket sales record, reaching sales of more than 188,000 tickets (and still selling) for his 11-show run next month in Minneapolis, MN.

The country superstar's round of nearly a dozen concerts at the Target Center in Minneapolis, which begins Nov. 6 and extend through Nov. 15, continues drawing fans. The 188,000-plus tickets blows the 1998 record of 162,833 tickets for nine shows in the same Minneapolis venue out of the water.

Brooks, who earlier this year emerged from more than a decade in retirement, is currently tackling several concerts in Jacksonville, FL, and will move on to Lexington, KY, for four shows at the end of this month.
