Default Would You Pay Good Money To See Garth Brooks?

Not a big fan, but know talent when I see it. Plus a zillion hicks can't be wrong (can they?). Might see him in Raleigh Durham next March with my wife.

I saw Vince Gill years ago. Dude can play, but he stood like a statue on one spot of the stage and never moved. Garth is way more of a showman.

I'm not a fan at all, but my wife dragged me to a concert back in the late '90s. He put on a hell of a show.

No, but I gladly paid for my MIL to go with my wife so I wouldn't have to.

You should take her. You'll both enjoy yourselves.

He did do a Bob Seger cover. I went fully expecting to be miserable. I came away impressed. I still don't like his music, but I do respect him as a musician.

Wife and I saw one of his shows last year in Tulsa.

I don't listen to country & western, but still had a good time.

Would go again.

that's an easy win. listen to some of his music on you tube to get familiar. he is a good entertainer even if you aren't a fan. he is also a decent guy, put his career mostly on hold to be there for his kids until they were grown.

Saw him put on a hell of a show in Central Park in the late 90's. Yes I would pay to see him again if local. Gen X chicks dig him.

I did back in college, when I was still into that kind of music. I can't say I would now. It was a heck of a show though, and I think my tickets were a whopping $25 or $30. Saw Van Halen in Houston back in September. I think that single ticket was like $175. No way I would pay close to that to see him again.
