Pure madness would be the words I would use to describe the city during Garth Brooks’s 9 show stay at Rogers Place a few months back. From the insane ticket sales, Mayor Don Iveson proclaiming the day of his first show Garth Brooks Day, the raising of his name to the rafters, the 5 millionth ticket sold here in town, it was a very eventful couple of weeks when old Garthy came to town. And the best part was we had total bragging rights over Calgary!
But not any longer! Early last week Garth announced that he’s be returning to Alberta to play Calgary no September 9th. And in classic Garth fashion, him and his people downplayed the excitement and didn’t want to say too much about the possibly of adding more shows (which is going to happen for sure).
Luckily enough, Jack, Gregg & myself had a chance to chat with Garth about his upcoming show, his time in Edmonton, and more Friday morning.
In the second part of our chat we get into Garth’s go-to karaoke song, how his daughters got their names, and more!
After talking to Garth, we’re AMPED to see him again in Calgary. And let’s not forget how crazy his time in Edmonton was.
And who could forget about our AMAZING CISN Christmas Wish centered around Garth?
Remember, tickets go on sale today, and we know how quickly they’ll sell out, so be quick!
