Garth Brooks kicked off the opening night of his Lubbock, Texas World Tour stop Thursday and blew the doors off the United Supermarkets Arena.

The last time Garth Brooks was in Lubbock was 20 some years ago at PikeFest, he said during a press conference Thursday afternoon. But the country music legend broke that long dry spell with a raucous show that blew away a completely packed United Supermarkets Arena. And it was just the first of five shows Brooks will play in Lubbock.

Judging from social media, Lubbock fans couldn't get enough Garth. Lucky for them (and the rest of us), he's here for four more shows this weekend.
