LOS ANGELES (AP) - Oklahoma native Garth Brooks is more than a memory in Los Angeles. According to his Web site, a series of concerts Brooks is giving to raise money for victims of recent wildfires sold out in less than an hour today.

The 85,677 tickets for five concerts went for about $45 each. They will be held in January at Staples Center.

Proceeds will go to a fire relief campaign, which will aid fire victims and provide equipment funding for fire departments around the state.

Brooks last appeared in Los Angeles in 2001.

He has sold more than 100 million albums in the United States and has hits that include this year's single ``More Than a Memory.''
