Garth Brooks will bid a final goodbye to legendary Studio 6A, longtime home to iconic music series Austin City Limits, with a performance on May 24, 2020. Austin PBS’s Farewell to Studio 6A: An Evening with Garth Brooks will celebrate the iconic institution.
After more than 50 years on the University of Texas Austin campus, Austin PBS is moving to a brand new home on the Austin Community College Highland Campus in Fall of 2020. The historic Studio 6A, home of the series Austin City Limits, was officially designated a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Landmark in 2009 and was the featured location for the Austin installment of the Foo Fighters’ 2014 documentary series Sonic Highways.
Garth Brooks has made two legendary Austin City Limits appearances in Studio 6A. He first appeared on the program in 1990, during Season 15, and returning a decade later to both open and close ACL’s 25th anniversary season with two hourlong episodes.
A limited number of event packages are available; all proceeds from the event will benefit Austin PBS’s Moving Forward capital campaign to support funding for the new facilities. To find out more go to austinpbs.org/farewell.
