What Happened Garth?

July 11, 2016

This past Saturday night we had tickets to check out Garth Brooks at Yankee Stadium in New York. His show was scheduled to start at 8:30 but there we sat in the drizzle. There was rain around the NYC area on Saturday night on the radar so they were obviously delaying the show. But why no mention to the crowd? My wife and I stayed until 9:30 and then headed back to the hotel. Back at the hotel around 11PM, we ran into two woman who were also at the show after spending a ton of money on a flight from Boston, hotel, cabs and meals to see Garth. They were under the impression the show was postponed or canceled. I found out later that night that Garth took the stage around midnight and played until about 1:45AM. As usual, it was a great show but today we were hearing the stories of people who didn't arrive home until 6AM Sunday morning. The moral of the story, never leave the venue until you get the official word.
