BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - For one night only the country music superstar Garth Brooks is bringing his fans his music in a unique way.
The coronavirus has put a pause on concerts but Brooks came up with a creative way to play his songs to thousands. For one night only fans could purchase tickets to selected drive-in movie theaters across the nation for a concert put on by Brooks that will be shown on the big screen.
“I am so excited to get to play again. I have missed it so much and want to get back to it,” Brooks said. “This drive-in concert allows us all to get back to playing live music without the uncertainty of what would be the result to us as a community. This is old school, new school, and perfect for the time we are in.”
The Franklin Drive-In was one of the theaters selected to show the Garth Brooks concert. Fans could purchase tickets online for $100 per carload. The gates at the drive-in will open at 6:30 PM and the concert started around 8:30 PM.
Lifelong Garth Brooks fans traveled to the drive-in for the special one night only performance.
“I am a huge Garth Brooks fan this is my second time seeing him in concert. I saw him in Louisville and it was fantastic so I am super stoked that during this pandemic that we still get to see him live,” said Anna Tackett, fan.
Some concert-goers were seeing Garth Brooks live for the very first time.
“This is my first time getting to see Garth Brooks live, well I mean somewhat live. It is better than not getting to see him at all,” said Robin Wright, fan.
One Garth Brooks fan said she was in the ticket line to buy tickets for the special drive-in event as soon as they went on sale.
“Every concert that comes to town I go, I am a life long fan. All of us have been from the beginning. I have all the albums, I have the new vinyl, I know all the words we are ready to go,” said Crystal Whittle, fan.
When asking fans what their favorite Garth Brooks song was “Friends in Low Places” became a popular answer.
The Franklin Drive-In show was sold out, around 200 Garth Brooks fans enjoyed the unique one night only concert Saturday evening.
Several other drive-in theaters were also added to the concert list this includes Judy’s Drive-Inn 9:30 PM Mount Sterling, KY Bourbon Drive-In 9:15 PM Paris, KY, 27 Twin Drive-In 9:15 PM and 11:59 PM Somerset, KY, Stanford Drive-In 9:15 PMand 11:59 PM Stanford, KY, and Skyline Drive-In 8:30 PM Summersville, KY.
