I don't really know what else to say other than I'm blown away. It's totally easy to see just why he is as recognized and acclaimed as he is. Totally amazing show
A couple really cool moments-
A lady was holding up a sign with a song request. On the sign- "MOM- Not for my mom, but for my son Taylor." She was a little bit away from him, so he asks everyone to quiet down, so he yells over to her, and in a very polite way asks how her son is doing. She responded with "He isn't here today like he was going to be." "He bows his head, and I don't know if I could repeat word for word what he said, but there was hardly a dry eye in the pace. At the end he said, very quietly and respectfully, "XXX(her name), I can tell you full well that your son is here tonight." And then played the song for her. Maybe to many it wasn't much, but to everyone there it was amazing.
Another of the touching stories was another lady, front row, holding a little orange 8.5x11 paper. All it said, written simply in Sharpie, was "I've been living with breast cancer, and dying to meet Garth Brooks :)" Well he went over, sat down, dangled his legs off the stage, and sang right to her for the etirety of the song. He grabs her hands, looks at her, hands her his guitar, and walked away. I'd say she got her wish :)
Of course a musician can only do so much, but when he saw an opportunity to do what he could, as little as it was, he did.
