OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — Justin Timberlake's "Man of the Woods" Tour stop at Chesapeake Energy Arena made history on Saturday Jan. 26.
The Grammy-award winning artist set a new record for the highest grossing show in both Chesapeake Energy Arena's and Oklahoma City's history, according to a release.
More than 16,000 people attended the concert, which is a part of a 117-date tour that spans 78 cities in 13 different countries throughout North America and Europe.
“The caliber of talent coming to Chesapeake Arena in 2019 is second-to-none, and successes like the Justin Timberlake concert help ensure that world class performers continue to visit OKC,” said Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt in a release. “We feel the benefits as music fans, of course, but also through the economic activity our community enjoys when people travel from around the region to see these shows. I’m excited for the rest of the 2019 lineup and to see what future announcements are yet to come.”
Exact figures for the record were not disclosed by Chesapeake Energy Arena.
