CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) — Thousands of country music fans flooded downtown Charlotte Friday night for the first of two Garth Brooks concerts at Bank of America Stadium.
Brooks, a country music megastar, had to reschedule his stadium tour several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now the concerts are finally taking place and the fans are thrilled.
Dominic Aguino said he traveled with his family from New Mexico just to be in Charlotte for Friday night’s concert.
“We saw him in Las Cruces a few years ago and then bought tickets to Nashville last year. It rained so it’s our makeup show. We came back down south and wanted to see him again “said Aguino.
The Friday night concert was a first for Aguino’s young son, Dominic Jr.
“I’m really excited because it’s like my very first gig,” young Aguino said.
Jackie Webb, a Charlotte resident attending the show on Friday night, said her first gig was a Garth Brooks concert.
“It was the first concert I went to when I was 13. My family took me, my brother and my sister and now I’m leaving with my husband and my cousins,” Webb said.
She said she still considers this concert the best show she has ever attended. Aguino was also thrilled with Brooks’ performance.
“He’s just such an artist. He keeps the crowd moving for the whole show,” Aguino said.
Brooks’ second show in Charlotte is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Saturday night. The Notes are still available for purchase in the secondary market.
