BOISE, Idaho — It's bulls and blood, it's dust and mud, it's the roar of a... Thursday night crowd.

Though that crowd was small in comparison to the nearly 80,000 fans expected to fill Albertsons Stadium this weekend, it was big enough to generate buzz across social media, sending fans in Boise rushing to catch a glimpse of multi-platinum recording artist Garth Brooks.

Dozens of lucky fans were able to get up close and personal with Brooks as he performed a soundcheck on the Blue Thursday night, performing songs like "Friends in Low Places," "Two Pina Coladas," and "The Thunder Rolls."

On Friday night, Brooks will perform his new duet called 'Dive Bar' with fellow country music star Blake Shelton.

On Saturday, Brooks' wife Trisha will host 'Trisha's Tailgate' before the concert.
