The concert will be the largest one-night show to play at outdoor theaters across the U.S. and Canada, according to garthbrooks.com.

June 30 update:

More than 350,000 fans watched the concert at drive-in theaters across North America. This is the first time anything like this has ever been done, according to a press release.

"This time, I was the fan and the people were the entertainment. Watching people all night from coast to coast, in Canada and here in the U.S., laughing, dancing, and singing, made me smile," said Brooks. "It reminded me how much I miss the crazy, happy, and unpredictable life we lead as entertainers. For one night, things seemed...right."
