Country music star Garth Brooks rocked Louisiana over the weekend, riling up the crowd so much that the concert registered as an earthquake with a local seismograph.
The volume from Brooks and his 102,000-member Tiger Stadium audience was so loud as he played "Callin' Baton Rouge" that the concert registered as an earthquake, a phenomenon Brooks likened to a "title bout."
"They hit hard. It wasn't a concert. It wasn't a party. It was a title bout, a heavyweight title fight," he said in a video for Inside Studio G on Monday of the Saturday night Louisiana State University concert. "It was awesome."

"Nobody gets close to what those people did," Brooks said of the "Garthquake," which he called a "once in a lifetime thing."
GARTH BROOKS TRIES TO LIVE IN THE WORLD
On Saturday, an LSU professor set up a seismograph machine, a device used to determine the magnitude of earthquakes, Cody Worsham, a chief brand officer for LSU, tweeted on Sunday.

Many fans also said that they received alerts from their Apple watches that the noise had hit 95 decimals, Farrah Yvette, an executive producer at WDSU News, said in a Twitter post.
"Just 10 minutes at this level can cause temporary hearing loss," a warning from a person's Apple watch read.
So many people said their watch gave them this alert. Wow. pic.twitter.com/NH5zoUcYiZ— Farrah Yvette (@farrah_yvette) May 1, 2022

Saturday marks the second time in history when the noise level from the crowd in Tiger Stadium registered as an earthquake. On October 8, 1988, as LSU was competing against Auburn University with two minutes left in the football game, the crowd of 79,000 people grew so loud that the noise registered as an earthquake, according to WBRZ.
The Washington Examiner reached out to Patricia Persaud for a comment but did not receive a response back.
