Country music superstar Garth Brooks is coming back to Edmonton!
Brooks will be doing a concert at Rogers Place on Saturday, February 18, 2017.
630 CHED’s Bruce Bowie has seen Brooks in concert at all three of his previous Edmonton concerts. “If there is a money-back guaranteed show, this would be it! Best show I have ever seen.”
“Honestly I thought nothing was ever going to top Elvis – I saw him in Seattle – but the electricity, the energy at Garth’s show! People stood on their feet didn’t sit down the whole show.”
Backstage was pretty cool for Bruce as well, who had brought of listeners from the radio station with him. “He is just the most down to earth guy. He autographed pictures for them and said, ‘Look my opening act can keep going.’ He had this huge stack of pictures and autographed them all. He said, ‘Oh, by the way’, then he reached into his pocket and pulled out this big wad of American bills. He said, ‘On behalf of the radio station, I want to compensate you for souvenirs and parking – whatever it cost you to come to my show tonight.’ It was unbelievable.”
Tickets will go on sale on Friday, December 9. (eb)
