Country Music Icon Garth Brooks is coming back to Louisiana for a massive show in Louisiana and he's bringing some friends!

The Sugar Bowl and Louisana Tourism Commission announced Wednesday that Garth Brooks will be headlining the FIRST-EVER Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff at the Ceasar's Superdome in New Orleans. The Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff will be held to celebrate the kickoff of the 2023 College Football Season on September 2nd.


Enjoy Garth Brooks and a star-studded lineup that features country music rising star Lainey Wilson and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

Tickets for this event will be available for purchase starting July 21st. The tickets will be sold on and will be priced at $98.95 inclusive of all fees.

With this being the first-ever event, the Sugar Bowl committee is hoping to make The Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff a yearly event to celebrate the kickoff of each football season!

The last time Garth Brooks played in Louisiana was when he sold-out LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. The tickets certainly went fast for that concert, so you don't want to miss this one if you get the opportunity to go.

“Being asked to be part of the first ever Sugar Bowl Country Kickoff is an honor,” Brooks shares.


“The fun will be in getting to perform with Legends Nitty Gritty and future legend Miss Wilson in front of arguably the greatest country music fans on the planet. Any trip to Louisiana is a guaranteed good time so PLEASE count me in!!”

Funds for this event will go toward assisting the Allstate Sugar Bowl in its support of numerous community programs including the funding the backing of the New Orleans Teacher Collective.
