DALLAS, TX --  Okay, Garth fans, you wanted him, now you`ve got `em..and all the traffic he comes with.

Back-to-back Brooks at the AAC means only one thing in Victory Park: bumper-to-bumper traffic.

"20,000 people going in, 20,000 people going out, another 20,000 people going in - sounds like a disaster," concert goer Brad Terry told NewsFix.

Parking is at a premium, especially around the cone zones. In case you didn`t know, the VP is undergoing some serious construction right now.

Some folks were left to rope-in parking out in the boonies; that`s hella far for all you city folk.

"Anywhere around this area, about right now, is going to be an absolute nightmare," Jared Atchison said.

Sure, things were crazy just before 7 P.M., but it double, once the early crowd left and the 10:30 group arrived.

Hey, the fun is just beginnin'. So, what`s a few cars and crowded streets for these fans? This is Garth Brooks we`re talkin` about - the country superstar.

After all, it`s been 17-years since he`s taken the stage in Big D.

"I'm ready to see a show; I'm ready to see a rock 'n roll show," Terry said.

Well, if you`re among the scores of lucky fans to score tickets to one of his shows, just know, it'll be packed all weekend. That`s right, Saturday will be a repeat of dual shows.

Wanna two-step around the mess? DART says hop a ride on the rail and roll right up to Victory Station.

"Parking around here is always a nightmare," Mitch Windt explained. "Trying to get around DFW, it's always impossible. So, you gotta go with the most economical, that's DART."

Might not be a bad plan because the traffic ain`t goin` down til the sun comes up.
