    TULSA, Okla. - Tickets for Garth Brooks’ concert return to Tulsa after 17 years went on sale Friday morning and reached sales of 111,000 tickets by the afternoon.

    A BOK Center spokesperson said there are limited numbers left for each of the seven shows.

    No matter how you may feel about Garth, he was certainly the talk of Green Country Friday.

    When the day started, Brooks had three shows scheduled. That number quickly grew to seven because of the extremely high demand. Penny Morris told FOX23 that even then she still couldn’t get tickets.

    “I never could get through. Never. I tried and tried,” Morris said.

    FOX23 did the math and found that with 111,000 tickets sold over just a fewhours, that means roughly 10 tickets were sold each second. That’s $713 per second.

    So many people were on Ticketmaster’s website that it crashed on some.

    “I got tickets and they were really good seats and I processed my order and it said sorry there’s an error,” Lori Snedden said.

    Luckily Snedden’s daughter scored some seats.
