Meanwhile, in Chicago:

It’s like Garth Brooks never left. Though he hasn’t performed in Chicago since the late ‘90s, the country star lined up a 10-night residency Friday at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, and then promptly sold it out.

Tickets ($56.94 plus service fees) went on sale Friday for concerts Sept. 4, 5, 6 (two shows), 11, 12 (two shows), 13 (two shows) and 14 at Allstate. The shows mark Brooks’ first Chicago-area appearances in 17 years.

We like most people are sick to death hearing about Garth Brooks so we decided to do something about it. We created a Chrome plugin called “Garth Blocks” which removes mentions of his majesty from the internet and your newsfeed. Some more info here including the link to download the plugin in the Chrome web store

‘sup pilgrim?

“Nothing that has occurred since I made the decision has changed my opinion that the decision was appropriate, balanced and reasonable. I very much regret the decision of Garth Brooks/Aiken Promotions not to hold the three permitted concerts and not to examine the options proposed by the city council in relation to the two concerts that were not permitted. This was their decision and they must accept the consequences.”
