Country superstar Garth Brooks is set to be the first artist to ever perform at the Notre Dame Stadium!


The Notre Dame Stadium has become one of the most revered structures in the world of sports and has been the location of countless iconic moments. The 88 year old venue can hold nearly 81 thousand people and will now for the first time ever be opening its’ gates to the music world!

Today, July 9, CMA Entertainer Of The Year Garth Brooks has been invited to play the first ever concert at this iconic stadium! The news was revealed at a press conference in Nashville, Tennessee by both Brooks and former head football coach for Notre Dame Lou Holtz. 

Brooks then took to Twitter to share the exciting news with fans.




During the press conference, Brooks stated, “Notre Dame stadium has seen so many iconic moments!…I look forward to bringing a new kind of crazy to the party.” Not only was the country icon excited, but many of the faculty members of the university took the opportunity to explain why Brooks was chosen as the artist to take this momental step in the stadium’s history.

John Affleck-Graves, executive vice president of the university, shared a bit about Brooks and why he was chosen as the inaugural performer for this iconic venue. Affleck-Graves stated, “Right from the outset, I just felt that Garth represents Notre Dame’s values…he is the perfect choice as the first artist to perform in concert in the stadium that Rockne built. This promises to be one of the biggest events in Notre Dame’s history.”

Brooks is a seminal artist, having claimed the position of CMA Entertainer Of The Year six times. He remains the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history certified by the RIAA and has 148 million album sales. He has earned  nearly every honor the music industry can bestow on a musician, receiving countless awards and claiming his spot as a member of the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, Country Music Hall Of Fame and Musicians Hall Of Fame. 

The country star has most recently finished 3 years on tour, and it is only fitting that such an acclaimed artist be the one to break the grounds as the first performer at the legendary sports stadium.
