Nevertheless . . .
IS GOING TO A GARTH BROOKS CONCERT AT ARROWHEAD WORTH $10K?!?!
We'll stipulate that there are legions of fans and he's a country music legend.
However . . .
- Arrowhead is a horrible venue for music. It's a football stadium and the acoustics are lousy according to every local music fan for the past 40 years.

And so we ask again . . . Should KC music fans pay 10 grand to see Garth?!?!
