I was super excited that Garth Brooks made his announcement that he would be touring once again. Even better than that? He and Ms. Trisha Yearwood would be touring together. This fan girl is totally geeking out! I really hope they come somewhere near me! I really do! I don’t care how much tickets are, I will go! 😉 (Okay…if they cost way too much I am too much of a stingy person to allow myself that kind of frivolity…I just am. Sigh. I suck!)
Garth’s comeback concert will actually take place in Ireland, where he will be playing Croke Park, a place he visited and entertained like 150,000 folks in 1997 over 2 days. He said he would love to come back once Croke Park Stadium was finished. It has now been like 10 years since Garth performed in a stadium like that…on his own. He has performed other places, namely his one man show in Vegas at the Wynn. But I digress, Croke Park is now complete and he will be entertaining about 400, 000 folks when his concert tour kicks off in July. 5 days…80,000 people. And all the tickets sold out in less than 2 hours.
The reason I am so excited about Garth’s comeback is that he is a true showman. His voice might not always be on par…but damn, you get a good show.
I love this song…and I love even more that’s based on a true story. Who hasn’t been through this with a love? I know I have…And I love that Garth is so in love with Ms. Trisha. Listen to the end…he’s almost crying at the end. Chills every single time. I am going to play the hell out of this song every time I’m on air.
