Garth Brooks Causes Crisis In Ireland
Garth Brooks, who pulled out of the music business in 2001, is planning a new world tour. This was to start with five dates in Ireland, where he would play to 400,000 fans. However, local authorities in Dublin granted permission for only three of the five dates, leading Brooks to announce that he was cancelling all of them. This has created a genuine political crisis in Ireland, with the main opposition party calling for emergency legislation and an intervention by Ireland’s prime minister.
The row between Garth Brooks and Dublin city council over a string of cancelled concerts has become an international political issue with even the White House forced to issue a statement. MORE HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE
