Schammert speculated that the August 14 event will be the largest in-person gathering in the USA since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Confirmed UNL is anticipating 90,000 people inside Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska on August 14 for @garthbrooks
This is a couple weeks before the start of College Football, so I’m thinking it’ll be the largest event in US since… pre-pandemic?
Friends in ALL places!

As someone who has been to Memorial Stadium, I can promise you that it’s going to be rocking when Garth Brooks rolls into town.
Huge thank you to everybody who made my trip to Nebraska an unforgettable experience.
The Cornhuskers truly have the best fans in America. I felt at home, and lost count of all the free drinks we were given.

Now that the game is over and Wisconsin won, I want to say I am blown away by the hospitality of Nebraska fans.
They won’t let me pay for a drink. I was told they’re the nicest fans in the sport, and they didn’t disappoint.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are an all-class fanbase.

People have been stuck inside for far too long, and we’re ready to get back to living life. With more and more people getting vaccinated, it’s time to get back to normal.
Garth Brooks setting Lincoln on fire with 90,000 fans in attendance should help get the job done in spades.
I hope everyone who attends has a ton of fun. People certainly deserve to have a great time after the past 14 months.
