Garth Brooks To Proceed With Dublin Gigs Despite Protests
Country superstar Garth Brooks is planning to go ahead with an upcoming five-night concert stint in Dublin, Ireland, despite protests from local residents.
The Friends in Low Places hit-maker is set to play Croke Park as part of a comeback tour in July this year.
He was originally scheduled for just 3 nights, but extended the stay to five concerts due to high demand from Irish fans.
However, in March this year, residents living near the arena made it clear they weren't pleased with the extension - they had already agreed with bosses from the Gaelic Athletic Association, which runs the venue, that no more than 3 concerts were to be held there each year, due to concerns over noise and disruption.
