SNEAK PEEK: Inside Garth Brooks' Yankee Stadium Shows — His First N.Y.C. Concerts in 19 Years!

Posted on

Garth Brooks is making his way to the small screen.

Brooks, 54, and AT&T are teaming up to air his exclusive concert event Garth Brooks / Yankee Stadium / Live.

Filmed over the summer, the two-night, sold out arena shows made history as the first-ever country music concert to be performed at Yankee Stadium. The shows marked Brooks’ return to New York City for his first performance in 19 years.

“I will say no matter what device you view the show on, none of them are going to be big enough!!” said Brooks in a statement.

“This show is HUGE!!! I got to see the show for the first time this week and I was blown away with how clear it looks, how real it feels … it is like you are right there when it is happening!”

Fans can expect to hear classics like “The Dance,” “Friends In Low Places,” “The Thunder Rolls,” and many more during the concert special.

Brooks’ wife, and fellow country superstar, Trisha Yearwood, 52, will also join him on stage for a series of songs including “In Another’s Eyes” and “She’s in Love with the Boy.” Brooks is currently in the midst of the three-year Garth Brooks World Tour with Yearwood.

It’s been a big year for Brooks, who most recently was honored as the 2016 entertainer of the year at the CMA Awards. He was also named the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history by the Recording Industry Association of America, and he’s the first to receive seven RIAA Diamond Awards for his albums.

The country legend can also be seen serving as the key adviser for the Top 12 contestants on The Voice next week.
