'I can't wait, Houston:' Garth Brooks sends taped message to H-Town fans about upcoming concert

Brooks called it "poetic justice" that he's ending his stadium tour at NRG in August. He explains why.

HOUSTON — Garth Brooks sent a special message to Houston fans Tuesday, just a few days after announcing a concert here in August.

The country music legend will perform at NRG Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 6, for the final show of his North American stadium tour.

Brooks said they were inspired to launch the stadium tour three years ago after playing sell-out shows at RodeoHouston to record crowds in 2018. So he said it's "poetic justice" that they're ending the tour in H-Town.

"I'm so proud of this. It's gonna come full circle. Couldn't think of a better place to start it and finish it," Brooks said in the taped message. "I can't wait, Houston."
