After grumbling from several pandemic-related teases, Cincinnati got to see Garth Brooks finally, truly, for real this time. The city got two whole nights of him — and in the house the Bengals built, to boot.
The world’s favorite Country star hosted two shows at Cincinnati’s Paul Brown Stadium on May 13 and 14. Brooks has been breaking sales and attendance records at venues nationwide since his limited-city stadium tour began this spring, so scheduling two nights in a venue that seats more than 65,000 comes as no surprise.
The Cincinnati performances were Brooks’ first at the Cincinnati Bengals’ stadium and his only stop in Ohio or Kentucky. The concert in the Jungle was “in the round,” which meant the stage was set up in the middle of the field rather than at the field’s endzone.
