Typically Sold-Out Garth Brooks Plays to a Half-Empty Arena: “It Was Embarrassing”

When country superstar Garth Brooks puts on a show, it typically sells out. Seats almost always sell in the secondary market for thousands. Last night, the singer learned that vilifying your own fan base and calling them a-holes is a costly endeavor.

In his first live appearance since the speech that lost him millions of supporters, Brooks filled The Geico Memorial Arena in Jostenberg, Illinois to just over 50 percent capacity.

“It was embarrassing,” said tour manager Joe Barron, “Poor Garth was waving people from the nosebleed seats to come down front. None of the floor seats sold. It was sad.”

Brooks has another show at the Haremfeather Norfolk Amphitheater in East Chicago next week that he’s considering canceling.

“I’m pretty sure if I just don’t show up things will be alright,” Brooks reportedly told his good friend Art Tubolls of the Chicago Bulls, “considering there’s a good chance that town doesn’t exist, will they miss me?”

Brooks was laughing from inside his new bar in Nashville, “Friends In Low Places,” while drinking a Bud Light. “I’m pretty sure they’ll buy anything so long as it punishes ol’ Garth,” he chuckled.

It’s true that if the venues are fictional that the stories could be, too, but does he really need to shove it in America’s face by drinking a Bud Light? For shame, Mr. Brooks. For shame. God Bless America.
