Garth Brooks cancels all five of his Irish comeback concerts

Garth Brooks

Wow! It's no wonder Garth postponed his big 7/7 announcement from yesterday until Thursday. 

It's now official, Garth has pulled out of all five concerts he planned to hold at Croke Park this month. 

Last week, the Dublin City Council refused to issue licences for two of his five comeback shows due to there having already been three concerts held at Croke Park this year. Unfortunately, Garth's contract with the promoter, Peter Aikens, said it was all or nothing for him. 

And Garth is sticking to his guns on that one. 

A statement from Aiken Promotions confirmed the news today.

The Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event: It is with great regret that Aiken Promotions today announce that the 5 concert Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event at Croke Park has been cancelled. No concerts will take place. The ticket return process will be outlined tomorrow. Aiken Promotions have exhausted all avenues regarding the staging of this event. We are very disappointed for the 400,000 fans who purchased tickets for The Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event.

Wow, how disappointing for the 400,000 ticket holders. 

Last week, Garth had released a statement explaining why it was all five shows or nothing for him. 

I can’t thank the people of Ireland enough for how welcome they have made me feel. 

I have faith that Dublin City Council will make the best decision for the people of Ireland. For us, it is five shows or none at all. 

To choose which shows to do and which shows not to do, would be like asking to choose one child over another. However this plays out, Ireland has my heart and always will.

The Irish shows were set to take place July 25-29.

“It’s a car show every day and a rocking country concert every night, with a parade of hot rods driving to each stop of the tour with me,” says Otto. “As the Grand Marshall, I’ll be leading the parade from city to city in my ’66 Chevy C-10 that I’ve dubbed “For Pete’s Sake” in honor of my grandpa Pete, who gave me the truck.”
