By Sophie Schillaci
Garth Brooks is giving all his fans an all-access backstage pass!
The country superstar has announced a groundbreaking new venture with Facebook, calledOpening Night With Garth. Brooks will bring his followers backstage on opening night of each new city he visits on tour, showing them what goes on behind the scenes before he hits the stage.
"Every opening night, we're gonna just have something different," Brooks told Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell at his show in San Diego, California, on Thursday. "You can see what it is like backstage and kind of get it warmed up for each city, which is pretty cool because this whole tour has been trying to make each city its own event, so this will just come in handy."
Here we go!!! Let's DO this!!! Opening Night LIVE #GarthInSANDIEGO !!!! love, g
Brooks is the first artist to launch a regular live streaming venture on his Facebook page, as he continues to prove that he's one of the most innovative celebrities on the platform.
Hard to beleive that just a year ago, Brooks was brand new to the social media scene! ET was with the singer as he launched his new accounts with a visit to Silicon Valley. See the flashback in the video below.
