Garth Brooks kicked off his 'dive bar' tour at Joe's on Weed in Chicago Monday night.



Police do not know if the owners of the vehicles were attending the Garth Brooks concert. Garth Brooks intentionally played smaller venues for this tour to get back to his roots of when he first started, so he chose Joe's on Weed Street for the smaller setting.
