Garth Brooks Is Performing A Free Concert On Facebook For Everyone Stuck At Home

Rae Batchelor 23 Mar 2020

Just because we're currently social distancing doesn't mean we have to give up all of our hobbies — just, unfortunately, the ones that involve going out to large events with crowds, like concerts.

Information about the coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing and Diply is committed to providing the most recent data as it becomes available. Some of the information in this story may have changed since publication, and we encourage readers to use online resources from CDC and WHO to stay up to date on the latest information surrounding COVID-19.

Musicians have been getting around this in some pretty creative ways.

Artists like John Legend, Coldplay, Niall Horan, Hozier, and tons more have been live-streaming concerts on social media that fans can tune into for free, just for some entertainment during this tough time.

Keith Urban performed with his wife, Nicole Kidman, providing backup vocals.

Tons of fans were incredibly grateful for the experience, especially because it's all been free — fellow musician John Mayer even commented, adding that he's "Proud to know you."

Comedian Patton Oswalt was also doing his part, with some front-yard standup.

He had a few neighbors watching quite happily, so it was a pretty big success, even if it wasn't the kind of crowds that he's probably used to drawing.

Country icon Garth Brooks is the latest to join this trend, and his concert is Monday at 7pm ET on his Facebook page.

On his Facebook show, Inside Studio G, last week a fan suggested this to Garth, who immediately agreed: "Let's do that! This will be cool," he responded.
