For his first performance in Hawaii, Garth Brooks is set to perform unplugged alongside special guest Trisha Yearwood, in support of the 75th Commemoration of the Attack on Pearl Harbor. The two performances will be much like his shows at Wynn in Las Vegas, just him and his acoustic guitar. The two performances will be December 10th at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena. The first show is at 6:30 pm and the second show is at 10 pm. Ticket sale details are below.
Brooks will be performing for Pacific Historic Parks which will be dispersing 100 percent of the net proceeds from the performances to four historic organizations with the mission of preserving the legacy of Pearl Harbor: WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument (USS Arizona Memorial), Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and Battleship Missouri Memorial.
The back-to-back concerts are the culmination of a week-long schedule of events commemorating the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, other military bases, and civilian areas on the Island of O’ahu, which led directly to our country’s entry into WWII.
Admiral Thomas Fargo, Chair of the 75th Commemoration Committee said, “The 75′ Commemoration embraces our respect for all men and women who have answered the call of duty for the last seven decades and especially honors those whose sacrifice protected our nation and secured victory during WWII. Garth Brooks embodies our theme of ‘honoring the past and inspiring the future.’ His phenomenal success as an artist and personal dedication to philanthropy are unparalleled.”
“I can speak for Miss Yearwood when I say it is a privilege to be a part of honoring our nation’s fighting men and women who have and continue to serve our great nation. We look forward to a night packed with music laughter and respect. We invite all to join us and raise as much money as we can to support these memorials that honor our past and our future,” said Garth Brooks.
Concert organizer under the auspices of Pacific Historic Parks, Ron Gibson said, “We are thrilled to welcome Garth Brooks to the islands for his first time performing in Hawaii. His performance will resonate with many here given the unique nature of the show. This will be Garth Brooks, “kanikapila” style: the man, his guitar, and stories, many, many, stories. This is Garth Brooks unplugged and personal. It’s high energy and captivating from the first note to the very last.”
