Staff and patients, including Levi and Abigail Foreman of Liberal, lined the atrium at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora to get a glimpse of Garth Brooks Wednesday, the country music superstar helping celebrate the grand opening of the Child Life Zone. Brooks’ foundation,Teammates for Kids
, which provides medical care and spiritual healing to children and families with curable diseases, was a large factor in making the Child Life Zone a possibility, according to the Denver Health website.
Brooks’ Colorado fans have waited nearly two decades to see the country superstar, who starts his run of nine shows at Denver’s Pepsi Center tonight. It’s a record breaking tour stop in the region: with 120,000 tickets up for grabs, Brooks has sold more tickets than any artist with consecutive shows at one venue in Colorado. While he hasn’t played a proper show since 1996, Brooks has made two appearances in the state for charity events in the past few years.
