BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — He goes back and forth with Elvis for the number one selling solo artist of all-time spot. While his true all-time ranking remains uncertain, one thing we know for sure is that Garth Brooks is “Callin’ Baton Rouge” to LSU’s Tiger Stadium this weekend.
Fans in the south have been bursting with excitement since December when Brooks announced his stadium tour and the fact that he’d be coming back to Baton Rouge after 24 years.
Saturday’s show will be the only show in Louisiana this year. Neighboring state Mississippi won’t see Brooks at all in 2022 so Louisiana will surely welcome Mississippians to Tiger Stadium.
More information about the concert can be found below.
If you haven’t purchased a ticket and are still wanting to go, you’re in luck. Ticketmaster has a few left all around the stadium. You may want to hurry though.
The stadium will enforce a clear bag policy. Clear totes, plastic ziptop bags, small clutches, and items that are related to a medical condition will be allowed inside the stadium. Backpacks, outside food, beverages, and video cameras are not allowed.
One question you’ll surely have is “Where do I park?” LSU has released a map of all locations where parking is still available.
