Garth Brooks returns to Louisiana: Will he make the Earth shake again?

Over a year since his sold-out show at Tiger Stadium, where he literally shook the ground, country music superstar Garth Brooks is set to return to the bayou.

Brooks is slated to headline the Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff, associated with the Allstate Sugar Bowl, on September 2 at the Caesars Superdome. The event will feature performances by Louisiana country singer Lainey Wilson and the iconic Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday, July 21 at 10 a.m. All tickets are reported to be $98.95.

The Sugar Bowl Committee says they want to make the Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff an annual Labor Day weekend celebration to signify the start of the college football season.

Brooks came “Callin’ Baton Rouge” in April 2022 — filling LSU’s Tiger Stadium with more than 102,000 fans. The concert registered on local seismographs.

The New Orleans concert is Brooks’ only announced concert outside of his Caesars Palace residency in Las Vegas.

Festivities for the Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff on Sept. 2 will begin at Champions Square with Tailgate Town, a football-themed interactive experience sponsored by New Orleans & Company.  

“We are excited to have not just Garth Brooks in the Superdome, but also our very own Louisiana Music Ambassador and Louisiana native Lainey Wilson,” said Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. “She rocked the world with us on our float in the Rose Parade and we know she will get the crowd rocking to welcome Garth to the stage in New Orleans. This lineup has all the makings of a great Louisiana Saturday night.”
