    Garth's Comments on Opening the BOK

    For those who don't know, the BOK will be a new arena in Tulsa that will open this fall. It will seat >15000. The major of Tulsa is trying to get Garth to be the opening act. So far Celine and Kenny Chesney have set dates to play. When a local station broke the news about Kenney Chesney playing at the BOK they made it very plain that he is NOT the opening act and that Garth is the opening act of choice. Below is an excerpt from the news segment:

    Mayor Taylor has personally reached out to Owasso resident Garth Brooks to see if he would open the BOK Center. Brooks has said he was available, but in an exclusive interview with News On 6 anchor Terry Hood, said that no deal had been struck.

    "To be here as an artist in Oklahoma for the ceremonial ribbon cutting, it would be an honor for me. So, we're going to work out something. We just don't know what it is yet," said Garth Brooks.


    HE SAID, "WE'RE GOING TO WORK OUT SOMETHING WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS YET." That sound promising to me...at least a glimmer of hope!

    Please post if you hear anything new on this. Tulsa is within driving distance and I'm ready to move down there for a few days!

    Hey, Joyce, I keep hearing all about how BOK looks very good for all us Garth fans, do we have a definite opening date yet? I believe I read sometime this fall? Is there a specific date they are shooting for to be done on time? Just needing some kind of time frame to see IF we could make it there. Only about 6 hours away, so could make this one just like KC.

    Kenny Chesney is scheduled for Sept. 10th and tickets go on sale in March. They say that is not the opening act ... so around the first of Sept. G didn't say yes, but he didn't say no. He did say that he would be involved but that the details had not been worked out.

    They are now billing Kenny as the opening show. I cried when they announced this. Im still thinking Garth will do something though. He was not the opening act for K.C. either, so maybe it will be something like that.
    December in Nashville with Garth makes for a Very Merry Christmas!!!

    According to Tulsa World Kenny isn't the opening act.
