HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will perform for the first time in Hawaii as part of the 75th Commemoration of the Attack on Pearl Harbor.
The married couple will perform twice on Saturday, Dec. 10 in back-to-back acoustic concerts at the Neal Blaisdell Arena.
“His performance will resonate with many here given the unique nature of the show. This will be Garth Brooks, 'kanikapila' style: the man, his guitar, and stories, many, many, stories," said concert organizer Ron Gibson with Pacific Historic Parks. "This is Garth Brooks unplugged and personal. It's high energy and captivating from the first note to the very last.”
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the performances will go to four historic organizations with the mission of preserving the legacy of Pearl Harbor: WII Valor in the Pacific National Monument (USS Arizona Memorial), Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and Battleship Missouri Memorial.
"We look forward to a night packed with music laughter and respect," said Brooks in a statement. "We invite all to join us and raise as much money as we can to support these memorials that honor our past and our future."
