Dáil Committee to meet after Garth Brooks concerts cancelled

The Oireachtas Committee on Transport and Communications will meet this morning to discuss the Garth Brooks debacle.

The Chief Executive of Dublin City Council Owen Keegan will appear before the members to discuss the issue today.

"Owen Keegan, Dublin City Manager, will appear before the committee and obviously there has been many attempts over the last number of days to resolve the situation, but we in the committee decided to bring in the main stakeholders, and Mr Keegan will be appearing before us this morning," said Committee Chairman Deputy John O’Mahony.

Representatives of the GAA and Aiken Promotions will appear tomorrow.

The process of returning Garth Brooks tickets will begin on Thursday after it was confirmed last night that all five shows at Croke Park have been cancelled.

In a statement, Aiken Promotions said that although 'all possible solutions' had been pursued, no concerts would take place.

Garth Brooks also issued a statement through his publicist, where he thanked Peter Aiken and the 400,000 ticketholders.

Fans are being advised the return process will get underway from 9am, on Thursday, through Ticketmaster.
