Garth Brooks "Callin' Baton Rouge" at Tiger Stadium
There were some magical moments that came out of the Garth Brooks concert in Death Valley, one of which included the entirety of Tiger Stadium singing along to "Callin' Baton Rouge".
The crowd was so loud and intense, that the reaction to the song actually registered as a small earthquake.
Unfortunately, some reports are showing that it wasn't all sing-alongs and sunshine in Death Valley on Saturday.

According to WAFB, investigators believe that the stabbing occurred during an altercation between two concession workers at Tiger Stadium. LSU Police are reportedly still investigating the incident, but believe that the alleged attacker fled the scene after stabbing their co-worker.
Reports add that LSU sent out a warning message to students in the area just after 4 p.m., although a follow-up message was sent out at 5 p.m. to notify students that there was no longer an "on-going threat".
