City officials in Garth Brooks' hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma have temporarily renamed a number of streets in his honour to mark his first concerts there in nearly 20 years.

On Friday (09Jan15), the country music icon and his wife Trisha Yearwood will bring their tour to the city's BOK Center for seven shows.

In honour of his triumphant return, a number of the streets surrounding the venue have been renamed with titles of some of Brooks' hit songs, including Low Places Lane, Thunder Rolls Road, and Shameless Boulevard.

Brooks, who has not performed in Tulsa in 17 years, admits he is especially excited for his homecoming shows, telling, "The great thing that I can't wait to see - there's a lot of friends that we made that never had seen us as a musician or an artist. They know us as somebody totally different. So watching their faces that night I'm on stage, I think I'm gonna get to see a lot of reactions that I wasn't expecting."
