Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have been tapped for two performances in remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The superstar couple will perform two stripped-down acoustic sets on Dec. 10, at 6:30PM and 10PM, at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena. All of the proceeds raised from ticket sales will go toward the Pacific Historic Parks fund. Those funds will be equally dispersed to the USS Arizona Memorial, the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park and the Battleship Missouri Memorial.
“The 75th Commemoration embraces our respect for all men and women who have answered the call of duty for the last seven decades and especially honors those whose sacrifice protected our nation and secured victory during World War II,” Admiral Thomas Fargo, chair of the 75th Commemoration Committee, says in a press release. “Garth Brooks embodies our theme of ‘honoring the past and inspiring the future.’ His phenomenal success as an artist and personal dedication to philanthropy are unparalleled.”
“It is a privilege to be a part of honoring our nation’s fighting men and women who have and continue to serve our great nation,” Brooks says. “We look forward to a night packed with music laughter and respect.”
Tickets for both shows will cost $69, and go on sale Oct. 22 at 10AM HT. Fans may only buy a maximum of eight tickets per transaction.
