A lot of people decided to come down early hoping to avoid a mess. Most were not worried about the traffic, and just excited to see a country music superstar.

Along the riverfront in downtown Milwaukee, the hum of nature plays to the percussion on Old World Third Street.

"Over there, it's just chaotic and crazy," said Melissa Paszkiewicz, fan.

On the final night of a big show, Garth Brooks fans get ready for another concert.

"This was electrifying driving up and seeing all these people with their cocktails was awesome," said Doreen McDonald, fan.

Saturday night, the country music superstar will play not one, but two shows.

"I expect him to be jumping around and flying around like he did twenty years ago," said McDonald.

As one show lets out, thousands of other fans arrive. Parking spots around the BMO Harris Bradley Center were quickly claimed.

"I had to park four blocks away," said Dave Schultz, fan.

But for Garth Brooks fans, it doesn't matter.

"Who knows the next time we can see him again," said McDonald.

The last time Garth Brooks came to Milwaukee, prior to Friday night's show, was 19 years ago. Fans say they don't want to have to wait that long to see him come back again.
