Garth Brooks Rocks Boise, Idaho on Stadium Tour
It was a weekend of Garth in Boise, Idaho. Garth Brooks played Albertson's Stadium on Friday and Saturday night. The crowds for both shows totaled 86,000, and according to Garth, it was the most people in attendance at any of his stadium shows.
I drove to Boise for the weekend to attend the Saturday night show, and it was definitely worth the drive. I grew up in Boise, and have been a fan of the Boise State Broncos my entire life.
For me, it was incredible on many levels. I'd sat in those stands many times before watching the Broncos play football. The feeling of nostalgia I had was overwhelming. Also, there has never been a concert at the stadium in my lifetime. I was with my parents, and was thankful to be able to share the experience with them.
On Friday night, Garth had a couple special guests on stage. Granger Smith was the opener, and Blake Shelton joined Garth on stage for the first ever live performance of their duet "Dive Bar". Blake also performed an acoustic version of "God's Country" before leaving the stage.
As I mentioned before, I went for the Saturday night show. Despite not having Blake, the energy was still electric. Dylan Scott was the opener for the night. The noise of the crowd was deafening as Garth rose from a hole in the center of the stage.
After Garth asked the crowd; "Are you ready to party all night", he played hit after hit for over three hours. He ran from one side of the stage to the other all night. The energy and volume of the crowd was unlike anything I'd ever experienced.
There are not many people on this planet capable of doing what Garth Brooks does. He is a universal artist and fans of his music span generations. He puts every last drop of energy into giving his fans what they paid for. A night of unforgettable entertainment.
