NORFOLK, Va. (AP) _ Garth Brooks will give a welcome-home concert for the crew of the Navy aircraft carrier USS Enterprise and their families on Nov. 21.

It will be the second of three ``Garth Brooks: Coast to Coast Live'' concert specials broadcast by CBS. The first is Nov. 14 at The Forum in Los Angeles. The site of the third on Nov. 28 hasn't been determined.

The Navy said Brooks will likely do the concert from the flight deck of the Enterprise, which is scheduled to return to Norfolk on Saturday after an extended deployment following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

``I announced last year that I won't be touring again,'' said Brooks, who has sold more than 100 million albums. ``But CBS has given me the opportunity to take my music to the people in a new way, to have the fun of performing live, and to do it in such a way that I don't have to be away from home for long periods of time. It's going to be fun.''
