Nashville, TN – August 12, 2019 – Garth Brooks wrapped a powerful weekend in Regina, SK bringing the “turbo-charged” (Variety) THE GARTH BROOKS STADIUM TOUR to a sea of dedicated fans Friday (8/9) and Saturday night (8/10), for two back-to-back shows at Mosiac Stadium. Friday’s show saw Brooks take to the stage following a weather delay with Regina Leader Post praising the entertainer as he “puts on epic show, post-storm.” Brooks unleashed hit after hit each night while entertaining 80,000 fans across both nights in Canada.
