Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - The COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on all kinds of entertainment, but now, some are gearing up to hit the big stage once again.

Country superstar Garth Brooks is set to perform at Tiger Stadium and is looking forward to singing his song, “Callin’ Baton Rouge” in Baton Rouge for the first time ever.

”They’re going to see the regular kind of stupidity and chaos that comes with a Garth Brooks show,” Brooks said.

For years, Garth Brooks has entertained his fans with his hit songs, ‘Friends in Low Places,’ and ‘The Thunder Rolls,’ but there is one song, in particular, he’s ready for his fans to hear.

“But I think it’s going to be amplified so much just for one moment in that night, right?” Brooks said. “When you get to play ‘Callin Baton Rouge’ in Baton Rouge and it’s not something that’s taped and you hear it out of live speakers before a football game - it’s really going down in that moment.”

Brooks said that some of his most memorable moments come from the Louisiana stage.

“This place is like home for me, and a home for pretty epic moments in my life.,” Brooks said. “I am not expecting Tiger Stadium to be any less of an epic moment. In fact, I would put my money on it’s a great possibility it could be the crown jewel of the entire stadium tour.”

Brooks told 7 News why he’s decided to keep his tickets at the same price all these years.

“They’ve always been the same price our entire career because what I don’t want is I don’t want someone looking at their mom or dad going, ‘Hey, how come we’re not sitting down there?’ They can’t say, ‘Because we can’t afford it,’” Brooks said.

After a year of setbacks in the pandemic, Brooks is looking forward to taking the stage, but with COVID precautions in place.

“Our job is to make the best night ever, but hopefully, the safest night ever too. Because people are coming back, and they’re going to come back at their own pace,” Brooks said.

Tickets for The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour go on sale Friday, December 10, at 10 a.m. You can find a direct link HERE.
