A study released by Praxis Consulting Ltd. shows a pair of concerts featuring country mega-star Garth Brooks held in August added millions of dollars to Regina’s economy.
The report, released Tuesday, shows the concerts resulted in an injection of between $13 million and $14.9 million calculated from concert revenue and operating expenses along with tourist spending which includes food, accommodations, and other purchases.
In total, around $20 million dollars was added to the provincial economy.
Around 40,000 people attended each of the two shows, held Aug. 9 and 10 at Mosaic Stadium.
The economic impact study was compiled by Praxis Consulting, independent of both Garth Brooks and the City of Regina.
