Garth Brooks Stadium Show In Nashville Postponed After Heavy Rain And Lightning Sent Fans Scrambling

Garth Brooks on stage

If you weren’t able to make it to Nashville for the Garth Brooks show last night, the good news is you’ll have another shot to catch Garth in Music City.

If you WERE able to make it yesterday, the bad news is you’re probably still trying to dry off from all the rain.

Garth was scheduled to perform in front of a sold-out crowd at Nissan Stadium, and fans had already filled the stadium and were enjoying the opening acts from the Grand Ole Opry.

But then, the skies opened up and a heavy downpour coupled with strong winds and lightning forced an evacuation of the stadium.

Fans were moved to the concourses and covered areas of the stadium with hopes that the show would be able to go on.

But after about an hour and a quick look at the radar for the rest of the evening, it became clear that there was no way the show was going to happen and the decision was made to postpone the concert.

Attempts were made to reschedule the show for the following night, with Garth even offering to perform a private concert for first responders who were able to work the rescheduled show.

But ultimately the decision was made to postpone the show entirely.

The rescheduled date has yet to be announced, but tickets for the original show will be honored for the new date.

This is always the risk that you take with stadium shows, but there were a ton of fans who had traveled to Nashville just for the Garth show who are no doubt disappointed that the weather didn’t cooperate.

Hopefully those 70,000 can make it back for the rescheduled date. But if you weren’t able to make the trip to see him for the first scheduled date, it looks like you’re going to get another shot.
