Garth Brooks Set For Several Croke Park Gigs In 2022

Garth Brooks is set for a series of concerts at Croke Park next year according to reports on Monday evening.

Virgin Media News reports that "negotiations are at an advanced stage to bring the singer back to Croke Park for a number of dates in September 2022".

It's said that the run would be for "at least three dates" and that there is a "possibility of adding further dates over a second weekend".

In 2014, the county music singer was set for a five-night run at Croke Park. Three nights had initially been planned, but the demand was such that further dates were added. In all, 400,0000 tickets were sold.

However, after protests from some residents living near the stadium, Dublin City Council only granted a licence for three of the concerts.

Brooks insisted that he was going to play all five, or none at all. Subsequently, all the gigs were cancelled, and refunds issued.
