Country icon Garth Brooks will be on hand to give Austin City Limits, the iconic Texas live music series broadcast, a proper farewell. Austin City Limits’ original home is Studio 6A on the University of Texas campus, and it is moving to a new broadcast studio on the Austin Community College Highland Campus this year.
Originally scheduled for May 24, 2021, Brooks will now perform a two-night run on July 20 and July 21. The country legend will perform a special concert, “Farewell to Studio 6A: An Evening With Garth Brooks,” to benefit KLRU’s “Moving Forward” campaign. Tickets start at $2,500 and go toward funding the station’s new facilities. The concert is strictly a fundraising event and won’t be filmed for Austin City Limits.
ACL executive producer Terry Lickona said: “Thirty years ago, Garth made history when he stepped onto the Austin City Limits stage for the first time. We are thrilled and honored to have him return and make history once again, with the final performance ever on a stage that was the original home for what’s become the longest-running music series on television.”
