The Garth Brooks Notre Dame concert will make history as the first-ever standalone concert performance in the stadium's 89-year history. The capacity for the historic South Bend venue figures to be around 85,000 fans. The concert will come during the football team's bye week.
"This place was built for concerts," Brooks said at the time of the announcement.
Garth Brooks-at-Notre Dame tickets figure to be among the hottest single concert tickets of the year. The creator of hits such as "Friends in Low Places," "The Thunder Rolls" and "The Dance," Brooks last performed at Notre Dame in 1994, hosting a pair of concerts at the school's indoor arena.
Previewing a Garth Brooks 2019 Tour?
The Notre Dame concert could be a warm up for a possible Garth Brooks 2019 stadium tour. Brooks has previously hinted that he could be lining up a massive 2019 tour. He last performed his World Tour in December 2017, so a 2019 concert tour might be in the cards.
For now, Garth Brooks fans will have to settle for a history-making show in South Bend, with the possibility that Trisha Yearwood might make an appearance.
