Garth Brooks concert chronology

Garth Brooks: Live in LA is a series of benefit concerts held by American country pop singer Garth Brooks in 2008. The five concerts, all held at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, were benefits for Fire Intervention Relief Effort, serving those impacted by the 2007 California wildfires. 100% of ticket prices were donated directly to the charity.[1]

Originally intended to be only one concert, extremely high ticket demand was seen, resulting in the addition of four shows (all of which sold out in 59 minutes); Brooks subsequently became the first artist ever to perform five concerts in two days.[2] He was accompanied by wife Trisha Yearwood, who performed as well. The second concert of the series was broadcast live on CBS, with on-screen information available for viewers to donate to the charity.[3]
