Just thought I would start a thread so we can keep track of everyone who is planning to make the trip to Texas!

This is so exciting and nerve wrecking all in one... not knowing if you will get a wristband or not.


Anyone out there have plans to go?? Tell me!!! ;)

Moni !! Would love to go if I knew that I would definitely be able to get in to the concert. This whole wristband thing is terrible - wish that they would come up with something different so that the "hard core" fans can make some advance plans !!

Announcing the details within two weeks of the event with Thanksgiving holidays in the midst of it all just isn't good. It's making it harder for the hard cores to make it happen. There has to be a better way to deal with the scalper issue, I just don't know what it is !!

as of right now im planning on going, but again its the whole wristband thing....like i said in another thread, i would have much rather paid $ for a ticket than have to go through all of this stress of not knowing whether i will get a wristband!

hopefully there will be some way of guarenteeing us outta towners a wristband around next week.


PLEASE!PLEASE!PLEASE!

I wanna go so bad:-)

Mo and I have reserved a room, but we haven't gone any further because of the wristband thing. Now that the airfare has jumped up dramatically, we may be cancelling our room.:(

I would love to go texas, but i'm a college student and can't afford to blow money on a plane ticket if i'm not even sure if i'll get into the concert.

I'm still wishing it had been in NY...especially seeing that it may be his last live concert!!! *sniffle* And, I don't have luck with the wristband thing, like the lottery, which is why I paid $350 for a ticket to see him Philly. (sorry Garth but I did what I had to) So I guess I'm not going to SPI. :( If someone had bet me I wouldn't be at the the last live Garth concert, I'd have said they were crazy. I guess they would have won. :( :( :(

I am going...don't have wristbands yet, but I am so there....airfare and hotel reservations are booked...I just have to figure out how to get wristbands....If anyone feels very generous....I need ONLY 2!!!!!

Garth Da Man
11-21-2001, 07:05 PM
I also only need 2. If anyone lives there and for whatever reason can't go, I will PAY you to pick me up 2 wristbands for your trouble and gas. Email me at GarthsGirl@msn.com.

BlueRose
11-21-2001, 07:42 PM
Jason, I'm hoping it's not...I said seeing that it "may" be his last live concert....and as of now, last live concert.

At any rate, those of you who are going have a very safe journey!!!

I'm going, I'm going... At least, I have a flight booked... I have a rental car reserved, and a hotel room...

Now all I need is a final okay from my boss to get Wed. thru Fri. off (I already have Wed. and Thurs. off), and a WRISTBAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Right now, I'm going on blind faith that I'll be able to get in. I'm staying at the Travelodge right on the island. I'll be getting in Wed. at about 2 pm... so it'll be close, but it's all good... I'll be there, right???????

WOO HOO!!!!!!! My second Garth concert ever... My first one was last week!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going. Flying out Monday. The only flight I could get for the time I needed was making one stop in Nashville. Do you think that might be a good sign? Costing me more than I planned, especially since I'm going on my own now, but I have to be there. I haven't heard Garth sing live in concert and this "MAY" be my last chance.
I know that if I had a wristband I'd have less gray hair.

Unfortunatly I will not be going.

Wish I could, bet it will be a blast.

Saw the first concert, it was Garth in all his glory!

Lovvvvved the duet with Trisha! It was different for them but awsum!

Missed the second show last night. Maybe someone will repeat it someday.

Where's James Garver? I love Garth as much as all of you, but I love James more. Where is he? I live near Nashville and have friends who say that he is working on a cd of his own songs that is Awesome! Has anyone else heard this? I would love it to be true. He is so cute and a real cowboy. Please let me know if any of you hear anything about this. Happy Garth Day!

My mother and I are planning on driving down from Indiana... but this no wristband thing is killing us! I still want to know how they think this'll bring in money from all over when they don't make wristbands available to out of staters. :confused:

Oh well. We'll be setting off Monday, and I sure hope that I hear something about them giving out more wristbands down there (like on Tuesday, Wednesday??) before then.

Does anyone know how early they'll let people line up to get in?

77,

On my e mail was a message that you had replied to my question about James Garver, but I was deleting some "junk" and accidentally deleted what it said about your reply. Do you know anything about James or where to get information on him? Please reply again.

thanks,
Sara

I was seriously looking into going down to Texas for what could be Garth's last concert--since I've never been to one. The only reason I can't go is because I have a test the next day and I don't think I could make it back in time. Tests in college kinda count for a lot, so skipping it wouldn't be too good for the grade. I'll just keep hoping that he'll tour again someday and when that happens, I'll make sure nothing stands in my way!! Anyone who is going, HAVE AN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME TIME and good luck getting the wristbands...Laura :)

Reports are that on wednesday, they'll start letting people line up at around 4-5 PM!!!!! Shea...like people will listen. Supposedly SPI will have tight security and NO lawn chairs will be allowed or cameras with zoom lens.

Sound check starts at 8 and GB will be arriving at SPI on Tuesday. Where he'll stay, only one knows...do I know? Hmm...I wonder?

Weather conditions: It's gonna be a cold day. The local station's GarthCast is looking like this--windy 15-20 mph winds, raining throughout the day, but it should clear up before the concert. ugh! Then at night, it should be a cooooooooooooool or coooollllddd 60-64 degrees. But we'll be close to the ocean so I don't know if that'll make it feel colder or warmer? Anyone? All I know is it's gonna be windy and ladies, look for a bad hair day. So avoid any camera in sight!!!

I'll be taking my camera and I hope I'm close enough to the stage to take awesome pics.

See ya!
