    Event Announcement Next Week

    During the Fargo Press Conference, Garth mentioned that he will be using "In-Ear" monitors during the Fargo shows to train for an Event that will be announced next week.

    "It has something to do with Vegas".

    I am not saying that is the case, I just want to be a good forum leader and appease the crowds

    For the life of me, I dont understand???

    He had a press conference (Like he does) to announce another announcement next week, and its to do with "In ear" monitors that he is using in the Fargo shows to Train for an event???

    Im totally confused..

    I dont want to sit thru a 42 minute video, where in the video does he mention this?

    Well I used google,(IEMs) are devices used by musicians, audio engineers and audiophiles to listen to music or to hear a personal mix of vocals and stage instrumentation for live performance or recording studio mixing.

    So thats normal. Watch the first bit of the video, all i can take from it is...

    Hes going to do a concert where the stage will be different from the normal stage and it will be filmed for TV, the fargo stage will have a similar setup so he can practice. The show must be Vegas.

    Hey I figured it out!! Not sure why he is calling it a an event, and not a concert.

    The press conference wasn't "to announce another announcement". He has a press conference in each city where he performs prior to the first show. This just happened to come up in the press conference. He had also mentioned something in a recent prior Opening Night Live or press conference (can't remember which) about something that had come across his desk the night before that would be great if it could come about. Whether it's the Vegas shows or something else is anyone's guess. I don't believe anything was said in the press conference about this "event" being televised; at least, I don't remember him saying that. The stage at the Fargo concerts are different in that the wings are much longer (not sure that those wings would fit in the T-Mobile Arena). Now, in his Opening Night Live Facebook video on Thursday, he began talking in an Irish accent...was that a clue?

    It was a radio interview where something "of magnitude" had come across his desk at midnight the night before that he couldn't announce at that time because it was still in the works (start at 4:30 if you don't want to listen to the whole radio interview).

    Ohh, I like it. The DJ said the first time he saw Garth was in Texas stadium and he was asked if he would swing on a cable again. His reply was something of that magnitude is coming again but can't announce it yet.

    This has to be Vegas.

    I know its not, but it would be sweet if the earpiece/moniter was for an all request show, and the ear piece would let him hear the selected person's song requests.

    I know me too. It sounds real exciting anyway. Though I wouldn't be expecting an announcement next week because he didn't say it will be coming next week. He did say the deal wasn't closed yet so can't announce it yet.

  14. #14
    I thought he said next week in one of the interviews???

    Heres hoping its sooner rather than later.

    The original poster said its next week, so Im guessing thats accurate.

    Apologies

    Just watched the Fargo press conference on YouTube. It's about 01.50 minutes in.

    The last time they were in Fargo, they got to rehearse for Texas stadium there because that was the only place they could use the Texas stadium stage.

    The band uses in ear devices but he will try it in Fargo for an event that will be announced next week.

    I'm thinking, it might be a stadium concert and they're using the stage in Fargo.

    I don't think it will happen in Vegas because Vegas has already been announced. It's going to be announced next week. With the stage they are using in Fargo to be used for this event.

    What I don't understand, if he's announcing this in the next week, I presume this new event will be for late July. Why have Vegas and this new event happen so close to each other?

    Just out of left field here, and this is a wild guess, Since Las vegas is getting an NHL team, could it be a charity game between country stars and ice hockey players at
    the venue?? and Garth is organizing it . Didnt he meet Gretzky recently?

    They built an arena for a NHL team but the NHL hasn't given them one yet. But you could see that being a promotional thing for the city to get the NHL and for Garth in general. However, I would say most of Garth's fans don't care that much for the NHL. Here in Dallas we have one of the best NHL teams in the league this year, and not many really care. Now if it was football.......

    Definitely out of left field. I can't imagine a situation where even Garth would consider that to be bigger than his Texas stadium shows. No, I'm sure this is going to just end up being a stadium show.

    I've heard rumblings about a return to Central Park, but nothing official. Just the rumor mill.

    when he announced vegas, didn't he say that it would have to be different? I wonder what he meant by that.
    I'd love to see him in a stadium, after watching all those early 90s specials. but I wouldn't be able to if it's july being that I'm already going to vegas.

    But it's not adding up. If there's a new announcement which we're getting, its a new city, so its not vegas.

    I'd love to see him as well but its too close to Vegas. Which is unfair on us because we were meant to get the best gig this year. And now there's a new one being planned and too close to each other.

    Central Park would be a good guess, but would he not need a bigger stage?

    I'd be happy to hear if it was a central park concert. Wasn't there a rumour that he was to play there in August 2017, 20 year anniversary.

    I have heard that he is to do a European tour next year in 2017. So if it's central park he's playing this summer, this European tour rumour will be more believable.

    I think it makes more sense to do Central park on the 20th anniversary.

    2017 might be Central park then europe. (hopefully New Zealand and australia as well)

    I think the announcement will to do with the vegas thing.


    But Im probably wrong and it will be central park!!

    If it's Central Park, I would wager he'll use the stage built for Croke.

    The stage he used last week in Fargo will be used.
