As most of you probably already know Garth Brooks has announced his much awaited return to Ireland – he will be performing in Croke Park on the 25th and 26th July 2014.

Brooks sold in excess of 120,000 tickets and sold out the tickets for the first two out in a matter of hours followed by the third date being announced and selling out in just four hours. The demand for Garth Brooks in 1997 was insatiable.
Garth Brooks said, “Before we go back on tour in the Fall of 2014, I want to challenge myself, the band, and crew. In ’97, we were lucky enough to play Croke Park, the stadium was under construction. 130,000+ of some of the greatest fans in the world. I was quoted then as saying ‘When this stadium is finished, I would love to come back and try to fill it again…this time to the brink.’…and we’re back to do just that.”
