Garth Brooks threw a shout-out to his fans in Baltimore Thursday with a dynamic social media clip to tease his Stadium Tour.
The 59-year-old country music star started the 2-minute video with an old clip of the recent concert he was singing in the crowd. Folks recorded with their cellphones as he crooned “Friends In Low Places.”
The video showcased his more recent concert at the University of Utah’s Eccles-Rice stadium in Salt Lake City.
The Salt Lake City Tribune reported that more than 50,000 fans attended Brooks’s concert this past weekend. The sold-out show, his first at the stadium since 2015, started about 9 p.m. The singer played for two hours amid the harsh heat.
Another video shot comes from a camera on his guitar while another song clip covers Elton John’s “Rocket Man.”
Brooks went out of the way to show the genuine atmosphere he likes to create, shuffling through his impressive catalog of hits while tossing in new songs from his most recent album “Fun.”
The footage goes between the stadium and a special show he did earlier in the day. Brooks performed for a smaller crowd at the nearby The Westerner club as part of his Dive Bar Tour set up.
That tour was inspired by Brooks’ hit single, “Dive Bar,” with Blake Shelton, which is on “Fun.”

With the recent stop in Utah, The Deseret News reported that Brooks told fans about how fast ticket sales were going before vowing to return to the location at some point next year.
“We left a lot of people in line — this was the fastest sellout we’ve ever had, or Ticketmaster’s ever had,” Brooks told his crowd. “And as much as I love that and as much as I’m thankful for that, all I can think about are those people who waited as long as you, and they didn’t get a ticket.”
With Baltimore coming up and the amazing video, Brooks promises more of his concert theatrics. The show is his first at M&T Bank Stadium and his first appearance in Baltimore in 6 years. Brooks’s website also states it will be the performer’s only Mid-Atlantic stadium tour stop in 2021.
