Garth Brooks is reportedly planning a series of gigs in Dublin’s Croke Park for 2022.
Virgin Media News reported that the country singer is currently in the middle of negotiations to organise a series of concerts, set for September 2022.
In 2014 Garth announced a comeback after temporarily retiring back in 2001. Two dates were initially planned for him to play in Croke Park during his comeback tour, but due to popular demand, three more nights were added, making his time there a five-night-run, the biggest the event promoters had ever seen.
Garth, unfortunately, had to cancel all five of his shows as the Dublin City Council would only grand a liscense for three of the planned gigs.
Upon hearing the news Garth announced that he would play all five gigs or none at all, and in the end was forced to refund 400,000 to fans around the country.
Speaking at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville back in 2018, Garth sharing that cancelling his show was one of his saddest moments in his career to date, and he assured Irish fans that when the time was right he would return.
“That’s probably the saddest moment of my musical career, was what happened in Dublin, right after probably the coolest moment of my music career, selling 400,000 tickets in one sitting”
“I will tell you this – I believe that things that start should finish so I have 100 per cent make the opportunity available to the people that make the decision in Ireland to get those shows back up and get them running again. If and when they say yes I will be there.”
How many night’s Garth is planning to play for is still unknown. Both Croke Park and Aiken Promotions are yet to comment on the situation.
