Brooks’ summer tour rolled into Kansas City as he took the stage at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday night. Following the concert, the musician marked the occasion with an epic throwback tweet. Mahomes’ mother, Randi, shared an old photo of herself, her young son, and Brooks together to celebrate his show in K.C. that night.
The country artist had a short stint as a baseball player in the late ’90s and early 2000s. Mahomes dad is an ex-professional baseball player. In fact, Patrick Mahomes Sr. played on the same New York Mets team as Garth Brooks back in 2000. Therefore Brooks is more than familiar with the Mahomes family.
Randi gave a shout-out to Brooks on Twitter and posted an awesome throwback picture of the trio together at what is likely a Mets practice. Brooks is in his Mets gear and so is a very young future NFL MVP and Super Bowl champion in Pat Mahomes.
Garth Brooks retweeted Brandi’s post saying that he loved the Mahomes family. In addition, he bragged about the Kansas City crowd and said he had a “blast” performing last night.
Garth Brooks Evaluating Further Concerts Amid Rise in COVID Cases
Recently, Garth Brooks revealed that he is reassessing his current stadium tour as COVID-19 cases continue to increase across America. As the delta variant continues to spread, the country singer is debating whether he will perform later dates on his tour. On Tuesday, Brooks shared a statement about the issue and voiced concerns about his fans.
Brooks just played Kansas City last night and Lincoln, Nebraska is up next. However, he already stated said that he won’t be selling tickets for his September show in Seattle, Washington. In addition, the “The Thunder Rolls” singer will be reviewing the situation over his band and crew’s upcoming three-week tour break.
“It breaks my heart to see city after city go on sale and then have to ask those sweet people and the venues to reschedule,” Garth Brooks said, according to an Associated Press report. “We have a three week window coming up where we, as a group, will assess the remainder of the stadium tour this year. It’s humbling to see people put this much faith in you as an artist, and it kills me to think I am letting them down.”
The country star and his tour crew already had a prescheduled break after their August 14 show in Nebraska. Brooks’ team will look at all options and decide what is best for themselves and fans going forward. The tour also has upcoming stops in Cincinnati, Charlotte, Baltimore, and Boston as well.
