Garth Brooks To Break The Seal On Notre Dame Stadium
Pollstar’s first Live Hall of Fame Inductee, Garth Brooks, is slated to play the first concert at Notre Dame Stadium at a yet-to-be-announced date.
“Notre Dame stadium has seen so many iconic moments!” Brooks said at press conference in Nashville. “I look forward to bringing a new kind of crazy to the party.“
The venue was opened in 1930 and has long been the home of the University of Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish.
Brooks recently wrapped up his three-year tour with his wife Trisha Yearwood in which they sold a record-setting 6.3 million tickets. Prior to the tour, Brooks had taken 13 years away from the road to focus on his family.
Brooks’ record-setting tour was capped by seven sold-out shows at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and which the Tennessean itself cited as cause for Music City’s own-record breaking tourism numbers in 2017.
In a previous interview with Pollstar, Brooks said music represents a way to bring people together, and indicated he likely wouldn’t be leaving permanently, despite the end of his tour.
“Music is a bridge and I would put it on the line in a heartbeat for a chance for people from another country to hear an artist from another country play and think, ‘You know, maybe we’re not that different. We got something in common. Maybe we can love each other because that’s what we’re all down here for, isn’t it?’
“Everyone talks about the greatest mystery in life and why are we down here? For me, it’s the easiest thing to answer on the planet: We’re down here for each other, that’s why there’s more than just one of us.”
