SEVEN YEARS AGO ago there were plans for five Garth Brooks concerts in a row, which descended into chaos, as local county councils and residents near Croke Park objected to a stretch that long. Their homes would be disrupted for that many days and nights in a row.
At the time the initial permission had been granted for 3 concerts.
The five 2014 shows had been sell-out concerts, with 400,000 tickets sold in all. After the dispute, the concerts were cancelled.
It is being reported now that plans are underway for three concerts by the same star of country music, Garth Brooks, at Croke Park for September 2022, although this has not yet been officially confirmed by Aiken Promotions.
It is being widely reported that talks are at an advanced stage.
For the almost ½ Million fans who booked tickets in 2014, there may be a chance to enjoy the international country star Garth Brooks in one of three concerts at Croke Park in 2022.
