Fans attending a Garth Brooks concert in Florida better be ready to spend some big money on hotel rooms.

According to a tweet from Darren Rovell, hotel rooms 39 miles away from the University of Florida stadium are going for $1,999 on the night of the concert, which is Saturday. The room a day later will only cost people $91. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)

I’m a big Garth Brooks guy, but I’m not sure it’s worth shelling out $2,000 to stay 39 miles away. It’s not even a hotel close by.

It’s the Fairfield nearly 40 miles away! That’s outrageous. I just tried a search on Hotels.com, and there’s virtually nothing available. It says 98 percent of all hotels are booked up for the concert.

Brooks, who is a legend in the country music game, better put on an incredible show if people are spending this kind of money to come see him.

I’d be willing to spend a solid chunk of money to see him perform live, but once you start getting into the five digit range on hotel accommodations alone, I think I’m out!

Now, if George Strait was the man putting on the show, I might be willing to have a different conversation. For Brooks, I’m just not spending that kind of cash, and it’s hard to believe so many other people are.
