Darius Rucker to Open for Garth Brooks: “I’m About to Poop My Pants I’m So Excited”

Fans who bought tickets to Garth Brooks’ sold-out show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on May 4 are getting an unexpected surprise: Darius Rucker will open the show.

Garth recently revealed the news, saying: “So, who is opening May 4th? Darius! Sweet guy. And he [kept] saying, ‘When are we gonna do something?’ I said, ‘Well, what are you doing the 4th?’ He says, ‘I’ll be there!’ Sweetest guy on the planet. You’re gonna have fun with this cat, too.”

Let the fun begin—Darius shared an exuberant comment via Twitter, saying, in part: “I’m about to poop my pants I’m so excited!”

Garth has used a mixed bag of openers for his recent Stadium Tour, including Chris Young, Easton Corbin and King Calaway (May 3).
