Who knew that one name would turn Calgary into a FRENZY? Garth knew. After performing 9 shows just north on the QE 2, Mr. Brooks is stirring up Calgary’s pot once again with 7 shows coming to Cow-town in September.
#GarthInCalgary is the familiar Hash-Tag. May want to re-name it to #GarthTakesOverCalgary! Posts of overwhelming joy from those lucky enough to get tickets. Conversations of what songs he should play: Thunder Rolls, Callin’ Baton Rouge, Ain’t going down till the sun comes up, and so on, and so on, and so on!
When I met with him two years ago he shared with me the importance of pleasing his fan-base...having enough tickets to go ‘round. By creating a generous supply of concert opportunities he was able to rid most cities of scalpers (IE Those charging more than the ticket’s face-value), all in an attempt to please you.
Not often can we put our differences aside or separate ourselves from the ‘craziness’ of our city, but sometimes a guy on a white horse rides in to deflect our attention. When the Stampede happens or the Garth Brooks musical bus pulls in, we should all be thankful that for just a brief moment, all in the world is good. Community coming together…creating a frenzy…time to get onboard!
