In the first 12 years of his career, Alan Jackson scored 20 No. 1 singles and 20 Top 10 hits. A decade later, one of the most popular male country singers of the 1990s still induces knee weakness with his resonating baritone voice, steady guitar strumming, and light-brown mustache, a facial accessory that promised to never pursue a solo career in exchange for a 10% cut of his record sales. In support of his latest album, Thirty Miles West, featuring the hit single “So You Don’t Have to Love Me Anymore,” he takes the stage at Broome County Arena, soothing souls with his laid-back brand of gospel-inspired honky-tonk, marked by lyrics, often influenced by tragedy. For instance, in an attempt to make sense of the aftermath of September 11, he penned “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” a tear-jerking ballad that became his first single to appear on pop Top 30 charts. Cranking out tunes from his 17 studio albums, he plows through crowd pleasers and lesser-known numbers from his latest album, pausing occasionally to let his backup band, The Strayhorns, steal the spotlight with a blurry-fingered fiddle solo or a stirring recitation of the Gettysburg Address.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app
Broome County Arena
The result of a nationwide battle of blueprints by young architects, Broome County Arena is a geometric delight of levitating suites that often resembles the exterior of a movie spaceship. This entertainment mecca has kept the denizens of the greater Binghampton area flush with music and sports since 1973. The 17,000-square-foot arena floor hosts the Binghampton Senators hockey team, and in its 6,925 concert seats, fans have witnessed the likes of Bob Dylan, the World Wrestling Arena’s Raw, and two of the last ever performances by Elvis Presley before his cloning experiment went haywire and took over Las Vegas.
