Nearly 300,000 queue online as Garth Brooks tickets go on sale

Nearly 300,000 people have queued online as tickets for Garth Brooks’ two Croke Park concerts go on sale.

Over 280,000 people queued online at 8:10am today in the hopes of claiming a ticket for either Friday or Saturday’s gig on September 9th and September 10th.


With planning permission already given to the two concerts, there is also sufficient room for five gigs in total.

This is a significant turnaround from 2014’s incident where Brooks cancelled five concerts at Croke Park due to objections from locals and Dublin City Council who would only allow three concerts.

Although there are hopes of five concerts being booked, Brooks played down the possibility of this happening.


When asked if he would like to do the five shows again, Brooks responded with, “I’d like to, but I’d also like to be six foot five and have abs.”

“You had 400,000 tickets in one city and one show. There’s no way we are going to do those numbers again. Would I like it? Yes. Is it going to happen? I think it would be impossible.”
