Thread Title is cringe worthy...

Garth banner doesn't bother me at all.

Washroom in lower concourse is still an issue

I don't care for Garth Brooks or his banner. I think it's dumb but ehh whatever.

The funny thing is we really had nothing planned for those dates anyway. If anything Garth did Rogers and the City of Edmonton a huge favour.

I know, and we did so little for him, other than hand over money for 9 straight sellouts. Thankyou Garth!!

Considering he probably could've done the same in a lot of other arenas it is a big deal. What else was really going to go on during those days here? Gave fans a real good chance at what was apparently real good pricing to see a legend.

So we were complaining for years about the lack of HUGE ****ing acts coming to town, and now that they come here (for practically 2 weeks solid worth of shows from 1 Massive headliner in the Country world), people are complaining?



turds.

And I ain't even a country fan.

My point is, that it worked out pretty good for both sides.

Rogers Place can be configured to hold 4,500 up to 20,000+.

They were massive back in the day. I don't know if they sell out Rogers Place, but it'll come close.

If they don't have at least 10,000 people there, I'll quit this board.
from the buzz I'm hearing, I wouldn't be shocked it they sold out the place, or came really close.

Hey guys, how are you? I'm fine, thanks for asking. Bit of a chest cold, I'll be fine.

My wife and I are heading to the game on Tuesday and I was wondering which restaurants (not bars) have free game parking for customers that is walking distance to the arena.

Thanks in advance. Not sure if this is the best thread, but thought I'd try my luck before starting a new one.

Yeah, you guys might get Garth Brooks and Metalica. But Fort Mac is getting the only Slayer date in Alberta this summer, only one of 2 in Canada on this tour

Someone i know was bragging they got concert tickets before anyone because they are a season ticket holder. Even before fan club and amex presales. Can this be true?
