There’s no stopping Garth Brooks, as he’s set to play five gigs in Dublin next year.

A further three dates were added due to high demand from his Irish fan base.

Tickets went on sale for his planned two concerts at Croke Park next September this morning, and an extra date for Sunday September 11 was added within 40 minutes.

At 10am, a further two dates were announced which will take place on Friday September 16 and Saturday 17.

Tickets went on sale immediately.

Within minutes of the first two concerts going on sale at 8am, almost 300,000 people were queueing, hoping to snap up tickets to see the country music star.

The demand for tickets could see all five concerts sell out, with fans splashing out an eye-watering €30 million on tickets.

The musician could barely contain his excitement as he took to Twitter after waking up to the ‘unbelievable’ news.

Croke Park was given permission by Dublin City Council to allow up to five gigs.

The 59-year-old country music star’s five concerts in 2014 were cancelled following a licensing dispute with local authorities.

Dublin City Council said at the time that it would only grant licences for three of the concerts at the Dublin venue, however, the singer refused to perform unless all five went ahead.

At a press conference in Dublin on Monday, Brooks said that while he would love to perform five gigs in the Drumcondra stadium, he ‘can’t see it.’

‘I’d love to do five, but I’d also love to be 6ft 5in with abs,’ he jokes with reporters.

‘What happened in 2014 was a miracle. Who does numbers like that? We got 400,00 hard tickets in one city and it’s impossible, there’s no way we are going to do that number again. There is just no way.’

An emotional Brooks went on to say it was ‘impossible.’

He also said that his Irish fans will now have a chance to see him perform.

‘What was meant to start this whole thing, is now going to be where this whole thing ends,’ he said.

‘If there is a blessing in what happened in that curse in 2014, it’s the fact that there is a chance that this artist and those people, who are sweet enough to get tickets, now have a chance to see each other again.’

Brooks has become the No.1 selling solo artist in US history, certified by the RIAA with 157 million album sales.

Tickets for his tour are on sale now.
