Garth Brooks

Saturday, June 8th, 2019 was one that will go in the record books as far as concerts go. If there would've been a roof on Mile High Stadium, Garth would've blown it off within the first 30 seconds.

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour was supposed to start at 7:00 pm on Saturday evening, people were coming from all over Colorado and the surrounding states. Traffic was already starting to back up on the highways at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Once you got into the city it was Garth Country. People were tailgating, drinking, walking around and in their best country gear possible.

Once the gates opened at 5:00 pm, 84,000+ screaming fans packed the stadium. Joe Nichols took the stage at first with his set. You could tell by the look on his face he has never seen or been in front of anything like that. Once he was done, there was a five-minute countdown until Garth makes his appearance. The clock started you could feel in the air that something big was about to happen.

There were two minutes left in the countdown, fans started to see Garth's band and they started to go nuts. The clock and the 84,000+ fans counted down the last 10 seconds, the music hit and Garth rose from underneath the stage.

He started around 8:30 and didn't stop until about 11:30. Words can't explain the experience that was had in that stadium on Saturday evening. The crowd was so electric that Garth had to stop in between each song to let the fans cheer and applaud him. Garth said his night in Denver is one he will never forget.
