PHOENIX — Garth Brooks fans in the Valley, grab all your friends, even the ones in low places, because the country legend is performing a sold-out concert at State Farm Stadium this Saturday.
Brooks announced his Phoenix-area concert in November and it quickly sold out. Fans who missed the first round of tickets are still in luck, however, because even more tickets went on sale Monday. Some are available through Ticketmaster and are (pricey and) expected to sell out.
It's going to sound like when the thunder rolls as 75,000 anticipated fans cheer on Brooks Saturday night.
And Valley residents, be prepared for some traffic because some fans ain't goin' down til' the sun comes up.
The roof of State Farm Stadium will be open for the concert.
