This is a significant moment for Jacksonville, aiming to be a top destination for entertainment. “This is a big deal for Jacksonville,” says Mayor Alvin Brown. “We’re honored to host music legend Garth Brooks as he embarks on his long-awaited world concert tour. He’s a fan favorite with incredible stage presence. Along with the great success of the Florida Country Superfest earlier this summer and Paul McCartney’s upcoming concert in October, it shows that Jacksonville is a premier venue for music’s top talent.”
