LOS ANGELES- February 5th, 2020- Garth Brooks roused the house at Six String in Foxborough, MA, for his seventh DIVE BAR concert.
The only way in was to win through local country radio, and the place was packed with over 900 people!
After the concert, Garth went live on Inside Studio G, his weekly Facebook live series: https://www.facebook.com/GarthBrooks/videos/214269269617583/
Garth began his Dive Bar concert series last summer at Joe's on Weed Street in Chicago. Other stops included Buck Owens' Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, CA; Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX; The Barn in Sanford, FL; The Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown, OH; and Prospectors in Mt. Laurel, NJ.
Tonight's show had originally been scheduled on the same night as the Prospectors show in December, but it had to be rescheduled due to the weather.
This past summer, Garth joined Seagram's 7 to declare it the summer of Dive Bars! As part of the celebration, the pair pledged to help make our roads safer for everyone by never driving impaired and committed to securing 700,000 pledges from dive bar patrons across the country at jointhepact.com.

Garth Brooks’ new single “Dive Bar” featuring Blake Shelton, which inspired the stint of dive bar shows, is available on Amazon Music. The “rowdy” (Rolling Stone) and “anthemic” (Billboard) new song was the most added song at country radio upon its debut and is taken from Brooks’ forthcoming studio album FUN, and is his first musical collaboration with Shelton.
Garth Brooks' music video for Dive Bar with Blake Shelton surpassed 30 million views in just five days, only on Facebook. It's the highest number of music video streams on Facebook in country music history. It's Garth's first new music video in 12 years.

Garth is also in the midst of his “turbo-charged” (Variety) stadium tour, which has shattered entertainment records at every stop so far. In 2019, Garth Brooks The Stadium Tour averaged just over 83,000 tickets in each city and over 914,000 tickets sold to date. Pollstar announced in December that The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour was the best selling country music tour of 2019.Click here
