    The Brooks concert sold?77,653?tickets, enough to also set an Arizona record for any single-night event.

    After hugging it out, Brooks gave a heartfelt speech about appreciating the treasures in your own backyard and said Fitzgerald was "possibly?the greatest human being I have ever met in my life."

    As the crowd chanted "Larry," Brooks added, "I'm wearing the jersey I want to wear tonight for sure. Not a statement of humbleness at all but a statement of honesty. Always hang around people that make you want to be a better person."

    He concluded his praise of Fitzgerald with "I love you, Larry. This guy does amazing things for everybody. I'm so lucky to know him."

    Then, he said, "Oh my gosh, how do you follow Larry Fitzgerald, right? I'll tell you what, you'd gotta bring the best thing you got."??

    And with that, the stage was set for "Callin' Baton Rouge," a hit from 1994's "In Pieces."

    This is the second stop on the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour. On the first stop, on March 9, he broke the attendance record?in?The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis.?
