Tulsa, Okla., Renames Streets in Honor of Garth Brooks
Garth Brooks' hometown of Tulsa, Okla., has renamed streets in advance of the artist's return on his World Tour.
Streets around Tulsa's BOK Center have been temporarily renamed in celebration of Brooks' seven hometown shows. New street names include Low Places Lane, Thunder Rolls Road and Shameless Boulevard.
Brooks will perform in his hometown Jan. 9-11 and 15-17, with back-to-back concerts on Jan. 10. This run of shows broke the city's previous ticket sales record, which had been held by Brooks from a set of concerts in 1997.
The singer says he will use his time in Oklahoma to spend an extended holiday with some of his oldest and closest friends.
“The great thing that I can’t wait to see -- there’s a lot of friends we made that never had seen us as a musician or an artist,” he says. “They know us as somebody totally different. So watching their faces that night up on stage, I think I’m going to get to see a lot of reactions that I wasn’t expecting.
“They know a totally different Garth back there, because you just work together in the fields or whatever,” he continues. “I’m looking forward to that. It’s going to be like going home again, but on steroids.”
