Garth 'blown away' by demand for Irish tickets

Garth Brooks is "blown away" by demand for tickets to his Irish concerts. Tickets to all three concerts sold out this morning.

The third date at Croke Park on Sunday, July 27 was added this morning shortly after tickets went on sale.

Concert promoter Peter Aiken said the country star is "blown away" by the huge demand for tickets.

He also cautioned unlucky fans who missed out on a ticket not to hold out hope for a fourth gig.

When asked about the prospect of adding another Croke Park date, he told Newstalk: “I don’t think so. The qualifiers are on the following weekend.”

And to think Garth was unsure of demand when he announced the first two dates10 days ago.

He said at the time; "I'm ready..Are you guys still there? We'll see what the answer is."

Now we know - hundreds of people queued in towns and cities across Ireland in the hope of securing tickets, some since the weekend.

The country star's much-anticipated concerts are his first in Ireland in more than 17 years.
