Yes, I’m going to see Garth, opening night in Tulsa. It was a challenge to get tickets, but we scored after a load of persistence and an intervention by a co-worker’s sister. Within a couple of hours, ticket sales hit 110,000 for the 7 shows booked at the BOK Center.
When he was here in 1997, I was living in Kansas and raising a family. Needless to say, I couldn’t join in the experience. Now, 17 years later, I’m older, wiser and ready to party.
How many days? 54 days, 10 hours, 0 minutes and 11 seconds, I think. But, who’s counting?
If I could say one thing to Garth it would be: Welcome home, buddy. Welcome home.
