AceShowbiz - Garth Brooks could not hide his excitement at his first stadium concert since the COVID-19 pandemic. While performing at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the "Friends in Low Places" hitmaker raved that "it's the greatest feeling" ever to finally be back on the stage.
The 59-year-old Grammy winning-artist performed to a sold-out crowd of 68,000 on Saturday night, July 10. "To every musician out there, all I can say is get back in the game because it's the greatest feeling in the world," he exclaimed during the event.
Garth also admitted that he was "nervous as hell" returning to the stage after over a year off. Regardless, he told his fans that he has "never been made to feel at home as quickly as [his fans] have made [him] feel."
"Any time you're off for a long time and come back, especially when you've been going as long as we have... you think it's going to be over," the country star noted on stage. "Thank you for making me feel like this."
During his two-hour concert, Garth entertained the audience with some of his hit songs, including "Friends in Low Places", "The Dance", "Rodeo" and "Standing Outside the Fire". The crooner, who also brought his wife Trisha Yearwood, also performed a duet by singing Lady GaGa and Bradley Cooper's "Shallow" from "A Star is Born".
Garth documented the event via Instagram by sharing some pictures of him on the stage. Alongside the snaps, he gushed, "LIVE MUSIC is BACK!!! I miss you already!!! THANK YOU for my life and for tonight!!!! love, g #GARTHinVEGAS."
One day afterward, Garth's wife Trisha put out a compilation chip of her and her husband from the show." I don't think I’ll ever meet the ground again! Las Vegas, thank you! xo," she penned in the accompanying message.
