Garth Brooks fan doesn’t think she’ll see him in SLO County

Being a pretty computer-savvy baby boomer, I felt sure I’d be able to get tickets to the Garth Brooks concert at the Mid-State Fair. Poised with my finger on my mouse, I started my Ticketmaster countdown to purchase tickets. I clicked within the first second, not 30 seconds, and up pops the “all sold out” notice. Not sure how much faster I could have been.

Seeing Garth Brooks in concert has been on my bucket list, and I’ve been a fan forever. So I won’t line the scalper’s pockets for tickets, but I have purchased tickets to see him at the Forum in Los Angeles the following night. It’s definitely going to cost a few more bucks, hotel, etc., but it’s the principle of the matter.

Mr. Brooks is a true gentleman and performer for adding the second show — but I think the only way I’ll get to see him in SLO County is if he moves here for six months, performing twice a week while I hone my Ticketmaster skills!
