You have one last chance to get Garth Brooks tickets – but you best be quick
Don't get honky-tonk heartbroken here.
Garth Brooks, who loves Ireland just as much as you do if not even more, is gearing up for his historic five-night run in Croke Park later this year.
Yep, it's finally happening. After all the controversy, national news headlines and widespread devastation, the country music phenomenon WILL make Croker his home for five individual nights this September.
Will you be there? That's the question. At the time of writing on a grey Monday afternoon, tickets for all five gigs are officially sold out, per the Ticketmaster website.
But there's a light at the end of this tunnel, you know. These shows are obviously quite noteworthy despite not even having actually physically taken place yet – they might even be Brooks' final stadium shows ever – and so his crew are pulling out all the stops by filming the concerts for a future release.
With those plans now finalised and the relevant space allocated for the respective technical personnel, it means that a number of production holds can be made available, allowing for additional tickets to go on sale to the general public.
It's not uncommon for production holds to be made available prior to a big show, though it can vary in terms of just how many tickets that subsequently generates. As it stands, it is unclear precisely how many fresh admissions will be on offer, so if you are in need of a golden ticket, you'll need to get up early later this week.
The newly-available tickets will officially go on sale via Ticketmaster at 8am on Thursday (16 June), so don't sleep in, yeah?
And while I'm here, I must highly recommended the two-part Netflix documentary Garth Brooks: The Road I'm On. It's incredible.
Genuinely up there with Metallica: Some Kind of Monster and Bros: After The Screaming Stops in the 'what the hell am I actually watching?' stakes. Dude cries inside the first five minutes and it doesn't let up there. Treat yourself.
