Garth tells Aiken he still wants all five gigs to proceed

Garth Brooks still wants all five Croke Park concerts to go ahead.

In the letter just released to media by Aiken promotions, Garth says he can't begin to tell how badly his heart is breaking right now.

He goes on to say he couldn't agree to just doing the three concerts.

In the letter to promoter Peter Aiken today, Garth writes: "If you think for any reason that the ‘powers that be’ in Ireland can fix this, then I will faithfully go to the last second’.

"Our guys are still en route and if there is any chance that the five planned concerts can be salvaged and nobody is being let down then we can proceed as planned."

Garth addresses the head of Aiken Promotions as Peter and he explains that he was informed yesterday that the shows had been cancelled.

He continued: "I hope you understand that to play for 400,000 people would be a dream, but to tell 160,000 of those people that they are not welcome would be a nightmare.

"To do what the city manager suggests (play three shows and not all five) means I agree that is how people should be treated and I just can’t agree with that."
