Garth Brooks Wraps Up Nine Concert Series

Updated:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) An international audience joined a Kansas City crowd as Garth Brooks played the final show of the concert series that ended his nine-year touring hiatus.

The show was simulcast to fans in movie theaters across North America and Europe on Wednesday. The 45-year-old country singer had retired from touring to be a stay-at-home dad.

As he had done for the other eight Kansas City shows, Brooks opened by rising from a hole in the stage while playing ``The Fever.'' But he appeared stiff during the first 90 minutes of his performance as he played a string of hits that included ``Friends in Low Places'' and ``The Dance,'' wrote Timothy Finn, a reviewer for The Kansas City Star.

Brooks then told fans the simulcast had ended and promised the rest of the night was for them.

``Instantly, his mood changed and so did theirs,'' wrote Finn.

The next 45 minutes included Brooks singing ``That Summer,'' ``Much Too Young (To Feel This Damned Old)'' and ``Two Pina Coladas.'' He also offered a solo acoustic medley of songs from James Taylor, Bob Seger and George Strait.

The crowd joined in as Brooks closed with ``American Pie.''
