The University of Notre Dame Office of Public Affairs and Communications said Brooks will be the first musician to perform a full concert in the stadium. In the past, musicians have done a few songs at halftime during football games but not a whole show. In 1987, the stadium hosted the Special Olympics opening ceremony.

"It's never been done before, and it's our understanding that Garth loves to do things that haven't been done before," Notre Dame's associate vice president for event management, Lee Sicinski, said at the news conference. "To bring a historic event like a Garth Brooks concert to the stadium, it just gives you goose bumps."
