Garth Brooks continues to expant his Stadium Tour. Last week, he announced the first show outside the U.S. – an August 10th concert at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada – and he recently added a second show at Boise State University (July 19th), an event that was added after Garth received a personal call and request from Idaho Governor Brad Little on behalf of his constituents when the first concert (July 20th) sold out in less than an hour.
This is Garth's first all-stadium concert tour, and he admitted early on that he had to adjust to playing for such large crowds. He tells us he's found a way to make sure he connects with every fan. “It’s the same kind of leap you had in your mind in the early ‘90s when you went from honky-tonks to arenas. You’re scared to death they’re not going to be personal, they’re not going to be warm. You’re scared to death that those people that bought that ticket way up in the corner are not going to be happy. You’re scared to death of that. So what you do is you get out there and you walk that stadium. You sit in those seats, and you realize you have to make sure these people see that you see them. And they see your gratitude.”
Tickets to Garth’s show in Regina will go on sale on Friday (June 7th). His is the first country concert ever to be held at Mosaic Stadium, which has hosted such rock acts as Guns ‘n’ Roses and The Eagles.
