Travel Advice For Garth Brooks
I was just thinking back to a clip I saw of
Garth Brooks, not sure if it was Studio G or not,
but it was from a couple of weeks ago I think.
In the clip he mentioned places he hasn't played before,
that he would like too, Moscow and Paris.
In Previous statements he has mentioned he would love to play,
Tokyo and Beijing.
Even going back to his Wynn Show in 2010, he also mentioned
he would love to return to Australia, in a AOL show in
2016 he said he would love to return to New Zealand.
Since about 2010 he has mentioned returning to Scotland and Spain
and Norway, even after the Ireland debacle he has mention in various interviews all
these places he would love to play.
So he does seem to have a desire to play countries
around the world, some he wants to return to, some
he wants to visit for the first time, his problem seems to be....
How to Freakin get there, how to organize it all, and whats
involve with traveling overseas, when he can go, he seems
to have no idea whatsoever, how this works.
So here's my travel advice for Mr Garth Brooks.
There is an invention called an Airplane, that takes you to these places.
You just need a Passport, and your on your freaking way.
If you don't want to take a whole freakin stage with
you, then don't, most venues would have a stage.
There is no law saying you have to play a big Mother freakin arena
or Stadium, plenty of artists have played town halls and theaters,
its quite easy, Im sure there is a bus schedule that takes you and
your band mates to a venue.
Most these venues in these countries are in town and
indoors so you don't have to put up with a bunch of beer belly,
Brown boys watching, Brexit leaving, inbreed gimps, like those
that live in Croke.
The rest of the good people of Ireland won't care if
you do a small concert somewhere else.
Now I know, you said the world part of the tour was
delayed, because one concert turned into five, and what
was suppose to be an 18 month tour turned into three years
(funny enough) you said the same thing about your 1996-1998 tour,
kinda thought you may of seen this coming, but anyway I digress.
Ya see, when you say, you would love to go/play these cities
around the world and then you don't, you come across like that
guy/girl at work who is always saying "I would love to go to
(Insert country name here)" But you know full well, if you bumped
into that person in 40 years time, they haven't been
anywhere, it's just all talk
Every single artist of every single genre has managed
to get on a plane and traveled where they wanted to go,
Dixie Chicks played in a field in NewZealand, Carrie Underwood
played an arena in Europe ,Steve Earl played in a bar in Aussie,
Willie Nelson has traveled a lot and most of the time he is goofed on skunk weed.
So there is really no issue at all, why you cant do something,
you really want to do, none whatsoever.
You could get anyway you want to go in 12 hours.
So Hop on one of those new airplane thingy's.
Take Jimmy, Dave and Trisha with you, walk into a local
town hall in Russia or Croatia that may only seat
2000 people and have a blast. You will create memories for yourself.
But if you decide this is not for you, maybe just maybe
its good idea to stop saying.....
"I would love to play (insert country name) but its too difficult"
That isn't a freaking good look, since traveling
is quiet easy, not that hard.
So get ya passport, take ya hat, and start singing ya fav songs, the world is waiting,
and don't forget to announce it in time!!
