A Facebook concert…fueled by requests! That’s what Garth Brooks is planning to serve up Monday evening live on Facebook (7:00pm ET/4:00pm PT) – “a Garth concert…fueled by requests.” “We’ll put together a set list and get it done.”
Garth made the announcement on the fly earlier this week at the suggestion of a Facebook follower while hosting “Inside Studio G.”
Inspired by the woman’s mention of the Keith Whitley song “Ten Feet Away” in conversation about the current crisis enveloping the nation and the world, Garth paused for a moment and declared, “Let’s just make a date,” adding, “Next week we’re just gonna do…guitar, vocal. You send in the set list.”
He and his team will be collecting requests submitted via Facebook. “We’ll try and get as many in as we possibly can,” he says. “We’ll do an hour…30 minutes or an hour. We’ll do our best depending on what the set list is.” Garth says he’s open to “covers [and] album cuts.” And…making it all more special – “You only get to see it when it’s going down.”
Also on tap Monday – the entertainer plans to give us a sneak peek at the upcoming PBS special, Garth Brooks: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song (which airs Sunday, March 29)!
