EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Last week country music fans in New England got some news they have been waiting a long time to hear.
Seven-time Country Music Awards Entertainer of the Year Garth Brooks will perform at Gillette for the first time ever on Saturday, Oct. 9.
This will be the first concert at Gillette since the pandemic hit and forced hundreds of shows to cancel.
Brooks joined 12 News This Morning on Thursday to talk about the upcoming show, which comes less than a week after Tom Brady returns to Gillette for the first time since becoming a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.
“I just know you’re playing in the house of champions and I get to walk in there,” Brooks explained. “As far as Brady I think some people are bigger than the game itself and he’s just one of those guys.”
Brooks says he is very excited to come to Foxboro and play in the stadium this time around. Last year during his “Dive Bar Tour” he played right next door at Six String Grill & Stage at Patriot Place.
