garth-brooks-dublinGarth Brooks has just confirmed he’ll play Dublin’s Croke Park on July 25th and 26th.

UPDATE: All Garth Brooks concerts at Croke Park have been cancelled

The announcement has just been made by the artist in person at Dublin’s Croke Park a couple of minutes ago. Fans started crossing their fingers for the big announcement a few days ago when Aiken Promotions announced that today, January 20th, a big gig announcement will be made by the artist in person at Croke Park. Brooks confirmed last year that he is back this year with a global tour, so Garth Brooks’ Irish Fans connected the dots and presumed it would be him.

The big announcement at Croke Park was delayed today and people on Twitter started guessing why that happened. Apparently someone found out what plane Garth Brooks was coming to Ireland with, tracked it live on sites such FlightRadar24 and saw that it was scheduled for a late arrival.

Speaking of the announcement, 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.”
