On Thursday, the country superstar sold out his July 17 concert at Rice-Eccles Stadium in less than 30 minutes.

Brooks praised his Utah fans on social media, writing "You showed up!" while adding it was Ticketmaster's fastest stadium sell out in U.S. history.

"Touring is BACK, Utah, Idaho, this is going to be the time I'VE been waiting for!," wrote Brooks.

According to Brooks, he's the first solo-artist to perform at the University of Utah's stadium in 10 years, and the first concert held at Rice-Eccles since U2 in 2011.
