Brooks To Go Live On Tv With Fire Victims Concert
A portion of country star GARTH BROOKS' five Los Angeles charity concerts will air live on TV as part of a special. Brooks made Staples Center history on 1 December (07) when all 85,000 tickets for his January (08) concerts, held to raise cash for the victims of last year's (07) California wildfires, sold out in just 59 minutes. And, with the Hollywood writers strike bringing most shows to a standstill, bosses at TV network CBS have decided to win viewers by airing a live portion from Brooks' third show on 25 January (08). The one-hour special will be titled Garth Brooks: Live in L.A.!. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Southern California 2008 Fire Intervention Relief Effort (FIRE). Viewers will be able to donate to the organisation during the TV special.
