“Ana got sick on Monday, and she was not able to go with us. We had this third ticket. We tried to give it away. It was just sitting out there, no takers,” Katie told WTVM-TV.

The couple then decided to catch a ride with the Uber app.

After getting in the car, they met their driver, Vicki, and headed to the concert.


Vicki told the couple about how much she loved Garth Brooks and how she decided to drive people in the area and take it all in, WTVM-TV reported.

“She was like, ‘I figured it out. I know how to get you really close to the stadium.’ She takes us up there, and I’m like, you know we have this extra ticket if you want to go with us, and she’s like, ‘No, I’m not dressed cute. No.’ Then all of a sudden, I was like, there’s a parking space right there parallel to the stadium. She U-turns it around. We all hop out and go in,” Katie told WTVM.
