How much did the city make from the Garth Brooks concert?

Yeah, I know, DaCola asked this question months ago, but I guess it takes a cute reporter from KSFY to get the answers (well not really);

The state made about $810,000 dollars on sales tax alone from Garth’s performances at the PREMIER Center.

The city’s take would be around $540K (1st penny, 2nd Penny and 3rd penny entertainment). As mentioned throughout the story, most of the money made went to Brooks and the promoters, which went straight out the door. This is why I have encouraged SMG and the city to start promoting it’s own concerts and keeping that revenue in Sioux Falls.
