Clean-up continues after the huge Garth Brooks concert at Memorial Stadium at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln over the weekend.

Matt Davidson is an Associate Athletic Director for UNL and former Husker football player. He said there was no major damage to the stadium following the concert but there was more trash to clean-up compared to a typical football Saturday.

Davidson said the university will have meetings with stakeholders to discuss how things went.

“...largely considering the unique nature of this Garth Brooks concert. We’re looking at this as a very positive win and we felt that everything went off very successfully,” he said.

Beer was sold for the first time at the stadium, but it’s unlikely it will be sold at Husker football games anytime soon.

Davidson said the university doesn’t have numbers yet on alcohol revenue sales or how much alcohol was sold.
