Garth Brooks concert brought in thousands to Memorial Stadium

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Memorial Stadium is mostly where fans flock for Husker football events.

However on Saturday, Memorial Stadium saw a completely different group of fans in the stadium - Garth Brooks fans. 

Memorial Stadium hasn't seen a concert in 34 years, and nearly 90,000 people filled the stands to watch the award winning country artist. 

Fans spent hours prior to the concert, tailgating and other activities while listening to Brooks' music on their speakers. 

For a Memorial Stadium first, beer was sold to those in attendance that were of age.
