Garth Brooks rocked Salt Lake City Saturday Night at the University of Utah’s Rice-Eccles Stadium.
Thrilled to be back performing for his fans Garth shares, “It was fun! They’re so sweet! Even though there’s 50-thousand of them, they act as one. It’s the greatest partner you’ve ever had. It’s a fun dance.”
After the last year and half Garth – who is no stranger to big stages – realized that being back to concerts means something a little different now, “I’m thinking we’re okay…and then you realize what you’ve missed, because you get to hear them sing (getting emotional). That’s the hard part. So, for me – I didn’t know how much I missed it…until you get to hear those voices…get to see that face. And I don’t think it was for Garth Brooks. I think it was the joy of being together. That’s what we’re supposed to do is be together.”
Garth shares his secret to performing for his fans, “The quicker you can turn it into a party [rather] than a concert…the less the old man has to work. There’s nothing to do! You just watch!”
Of course, the party got started the day before Garth took the “big” stage – when he stepped back on the “little” stage to resume his Dive Bar shows. Friday night Garth headed to The Westerner – a Salt Lake City honky-tonk – and if you couldn’t make the show…Garth shared a little big of the fun for fans to see…
Garth’s next stop is coming up this weekend at the sold out Cheyenne Frontier Days show in Cheyenne, WY.
