It’s a big weekend for country music in the Northeast. Garth Brooks brings the “Garth Brooks Experience” to the TD Garden for an unprecedented six shows in four days. He’ll play two shows a night on Friday and Saturday and when it’s all said and done he’ll have performed for over 75,000 people. But it’s not just Garth who’s in the region this weekend. Alan Jackson brings his Keepin’ It Country Tour to the MassMutual Center in Springfield, MA on Friday night before heading up to Portland, ME on Saturday night. He has Jon Pardi and the Grammy nominated Brandy Clark along with him for both shows.

Limited tickets are still available for all shows.
Note: Trisha Yearwood is also on the bill for all six Garth Brooks shows.
