SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau estimates the local economic impact of Garth Brooks' performances during the next two weekends at $12.5 million.

The singer has nine shows scheduled September 15-17, 2017 and September 22-24, 2017 at the Sanford Premier Center. Hotels, restaurants and bars will all benefit from the additional spending by concert goers.

City finance director Tracy Turbak says that besides the sales tax, Sioux Falls has an entertainment tax that brings in about $7 million annually. That tax is on restaurants, alcohol, hotel stays and ticket sales.

Brooks offered one single ticket price for the nine sold out performances at $74.98, saying he wanted everyone to get an equal shot at buying tickets.

This will be the last South Dakota, Minnesota, and North Dakota appearance on The Garth Brooks World Tour and the first time in Sioux Falls in 20 years.
