Garth Brooks Adds Fourth Comeback Show
Garth Brooks has added a fourth show to his upcoming Comeback Special event at Croke Park in Ireland, after the first three scheduled shows sold out.
The event was originally only scheduled for two nights, but when those shows sold out within 90 minutes, a third — and now fourth — show were added. The shows will now run nightly from July 25-28.
“It is hard to believe that an artist could play four nights in a row at Croke Park, but thanks to the cooperation of Croke Park and the huge support of the fans we are delighted to be announcing today this fourth date for the Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event,” promoter Peter Aiken says in a press release.
Tickets for the fourth show on the 28th will go on sale on Thursday, Feb. 6 via Ticketmaster.
Brooks had hoped to sell out Croke Park since he played there in 1997, while the stadium was under construction.
“Before we go back on tour in the fall of 2014, I want to challenge myself, the band and crew,” he said when he announced the dates. “In ’97, we were lucky enough to play Croke Park, the stadium was under construction. 130,000-plus 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.”
It looks like Brooks may be quadrupling his goal. No other specific dates have been announced for the upcoming world tour, which Brooks has said will last three years.
