The concert is the first-ever concert held at Notre Dame Stadim
Garth Brooks’ primetime television special Garth: Live at Notre Dame will be rebroadcast Friday, December 28th from 8-10 pm ET/PT on the CBS Television Network. The special captures Brooks while he performs the first live concert ever held at the legendary Notre Dame Stadium, at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, IN, on Saturday, October 20th.
“After the sellout, I thought it could not get any more exciting than this,” states Garth Brooks. “Then, CBS calls and, in an instant, the show becomes bigger. This changes everything.”
“We have an amazing history with Garth….we’ve partnered with him at some extraordinary venues: from the enormity of an aircraft carrier, to the intimacy of his one-man show in Las Vegas,” says Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Music, Specials & Live Events. “Now, we are joining forces to bring viewers Garth at his best – a full blown stadium-sized event for television from renowned Notre Dame Stadium. Garth Brooks. Notre Dame. Two icons. One night. It will be a television event to remember.”
Garth: Live at Notre Dame is a production of Picture Vision Pictures. Executive producer is Garth Brooks; supervising producer is Jillian Ellis. The special is produced and directed by Jon Smalls.
The show sold out the storied venue of approximately 85,000 within hours of tickets going on sale. The stadium show is a snippet of what fans will experience on The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour in 2019. Brooks sold out the first date of St. Louis on March 9th within hours of going on sale, and also his Glendale, AZ stop on March 23rd. Tickets are still available for Gainesville on April 20th and Pittsburgh on May 18th. Tickets for Minneapolis on May 4th are on sale now.
