“Nine shows scares me. But the fact that it’s Denver, well kinda scares me too, because Denver works your butt off. They do. They expect you to come out, they expect you to work as hard as they do,” Brooks said.
There’s another concert Thursday night. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday Brooks will perform two shows each. The final show is Tuesday night.

“I’m going to warn you right now we are loud. We’re just enjoying getting to play again, so when you do that you turn things up a little louder.”
Brooks spent much of the day Wednesday touring Children’s Hospital in Aurora. He says he is glad to be back in Denver and says the shows will be a lot of fun.

“To do three two-show nights back-to-back, we’ve never done that. I’m 104 years old. I don’t know how we are going to do it, but all I know is if people want to see that many shows we are thankful.”
Brooks also has a request for fans.
“If the voice goes, which it will, then the plea would be to please to just sing for me.”
