The Garth Brooks Tour amazingly came to Jacksonville, Florida! I saw Garth Brooks this weekend and it was classic Garth. I followed him when he was THE country star and saw him once in concert over ten years ago. I think he was the first entertainer I saw come down from the ceiling during that concert. Then he took ten years off. Wow, who in the entertainment world, where time flies and leaves lots of people behind, can take ten years off and then make such an amazing comeback? Garth Brooks did it.
The Garth Brooks Tour shows he is the consummate marketer and it was clear with his stage. At first glance, it seemed simple however, it was extremely current and dazzling and used it to introduce everyone to his new online site www.GhostTunes.com , a new musical platform. It’s interesting and new, check it out. If you are a Garth fan, you can buy his new music or a bundle of the new and all of the old music however, he has other artists in all genres on this site as well. There are many articles online about the new venture and whether it will be successful. Everything Garth touches is successful and I expect this will be as well. I loved how he introduced people like me, moving a millions miles an hour, to www.GhostTunes.com by including it in the images on stage before the concert, even holding a contest for a chance to get “upgraded” seats if you signed into the wifi provided by Ghost Tunes.
The show was pure Garth with all classic songs, the audience singing along to every one of them, and his great comedic timing and self deprivation-what a great show! Here are some photos and videos from the show.
