Garth Brooks Sets Oct. 20 Date for Notre Dame Stadium Show

FILE - Country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, married since 2005, pose in the Country Music Hall of Fame, March 27, 2018, in Nashville, Tenn.

Country star Garth Brooks has set a late October date for his University of Notre Dame show that will be the first-ever music concert at the school's football stadium.

Brooks' publicist announced Monday that the concert would be held October 20 at Notre Dame Stadium, rain or shine. Tickets go on sale September 14.

Brooks joined former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz at a Nashville, Tennessee, news conference in July to announce the planned concert. Brooks said the concert date would be scheduled once the Irish finalized their season schedule, and said that he can't wait to introduce his fans to Notre Dame.

Brooks, who is known for hits such as "Friends in Low Places," wrapped up a major three-year tour last year.
