How to find the best deals on tickets to Garth Brooks Houston

Buying tickets to major events in Houston is a major event all its own. If you’re not online to get the tickets you want the moment they go on sale, the most desirable seats often sell out quickly only to end up in the hands of ticket resellers hoping to turn a profit. The good news is that there are tactics you can use to get in the door to see Garth Brooks at NRG Stadium, or any major Houston event without paying a hefty premium.

Tip 1: Wait it out. 

As fans, we want to secure ourselves a spot to see Garth Brooks ASAP, but playing it cool is one of the best ways to save. Tickets on resale sites are often at their highest prices around the time the event goes on sale to the general public. If you want to make sure you have tickets to Garth Brooks Houston in advance, give it a few days or check back periodically until you see an attractive price point. You may still pay over face value, but can avoid the immediate price gouging when the event’s ticket sale first goes live.

Tip 2: Obstructed view. 

Some Houston event venues have seats labeled as “obstructed view,” which is exactly what it sounds like. No, these aren’t the best seats in the house, but live entertainment isn’t static. Garth Brooks will be all over the stage and you’ll be in the building to enjoy it, most likely for much less than others paid to be at the same event.

Tip 3: Buy your tickets the same day as the event. 

While this is the riskiest strategy for procuring tickets to Garth Brooks in Houston, it also reaps the greatest rewards. Like the rest of the economy, event tickets sell based on the simple principles of supply & demand. The closer it gets to showtime, demand plummets — and so do prices! If you’re willing to cut it close, you can save big, plus you’ll have a great story to tell. One of our curators scored 5th row Elton John tickets for $70 using the “same-day” strategy. If you’re a bit of an adrenaline junkie who loves a great deal, this is the strategy for you!

Tip 4: Stay flexible.

If you’re dead set on being front and center to see Garth Brooks, expect to hand over your hard-earned cash. As you’d expect, the best seats usually come with the highest price tag. The more flexible you’re willing to be about where you are in the venue, the more you can save. If you see tickets to Garth Brooks Houston at an affordable cost, Google “the venue name, section number, view” to get an idea of the view from those exact seats! 

Tip 5: Stay out of the zone.

Never, ever buy tickets that are labeled  “zone seating.” These are speculative sales; essentially, a ticket reseller is offering tickets they don’t actually own yet. They are often priced astronomically and the reseller is making the bet that they can find tickets to Garth Brooks in Houston for less than you’re paying them using the same sites you have access to, like StubHub and Vivid Seats.
