What to know ahead of the Garth Brooks concert in Fayetteville

Before Garth Brooks hits the stage in Razorback Stadium this weekend, here are a few things you need to know ahead of the concert.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Around 80,000 people will be in Fayetteville to watch county music legend Garth Brooks hit the stage at Razorback Stadium this weekend.

To make sure you're ready for The Dance, we've made a list of all the things to know before you head out with your Friends in Low Places this Saturday, April 23. 

Brooks revealed during a media presser that he will be paying to replace the grass field at Razorback Stadium.

Representatives from the University of Arkansas said Brooks’ generosity will pay to replace the field.

When asked about this, Brooks said he’s happy to give back.

“We tear up the old one pretty good. So, if that’s what you mean? Usually, what you do with - let’s take Florida for example, we went down there and played down where the Gators played. They were getting ready to have graduation commencement. So, they kept our stuff on the floor all the way through commencement and then when you bring it up after being underneath for six weeks, it needs a lot of work. So, you contribute back to that field because you know it’s kind of a “thank you” for letting them play here, letting us play here. So, any time we get a chance to do that.” Brooks said.

Brooks then jokingly brought up the Hogs next season. “If you have a great season next year, it’s all because of me. Just want you to know. If you have a bad season, it’s whoever you hired to put the sod down. I wish I could help you, he said.
