Garth Brooks in Dublin: Country legend ready for ‘love fest’ when tonight’s five-day run begins at Croke Park

Garth Brooks has said he is preparing for a “love fest” at his five-day run at Croke Park, which begins tomorrow after an eight-year wait.

Rooks, who said he lost 50 pounds to prepare for the shows, told the media today that he believed there would be “some people crazy enough to attend all five nights” eight years on his shows were canceled in 2014.

And he announced that he could even sing the ballad If tomorrow never comes for the first time in 20 years.

“It will be a joy to sing this song — it has stood the test of time,” Brooks said.

The first of the five day concert series takes place at Croke Park tomorrow and concludes on Saturday 17th September.

Brooks said despite his excitement, he’s still “nervous,” but he also feels “like a boxer” who’s been getting in shape for the marathon concerts.

“I hope I can’t hear myself singing,” he added, as the crowd cheered to the music.

“There is pressure, especially after 2014 – but Ireland is love and you want it to be worth it for the people who have waited so long.

“I don’t know anything about salvation, any more than I can finally embrace it…”

Every member of the media at today’s press conference at Croke Park Museum received a free t-shirt on the way out, although the singer admitted he hasn’t always had a good relationship with the press in Ireland.

It has already been said that there will be no support act on any of the nights.

Gates open at 5pm and shows start at 7:30pm. There is a curfew from 10:30 p.m.

There is no queuing on the residential streets around Croke Park.

The singer said while he was considering adding support acts, there were concerns some fans might “rush in”.

Commenting on the cancellation in 2014, the singer said: “This is my take on 2014, everyone was a victim of the debacle and now we’ll see each other.

“It was supposed to start the comeback tour.

“I’m not here for 2014, I’m here for the ’90s, The Point.

“You can say you’re an entertainer, but you haven’t entertained until you’ve entertained Ireland.”

The singer said he lost 50 pounds ahead of the show despite his love of food.

“I’m the same weight as when he played here in 1997,” he added.

Brooks appeared to be in a calm and good mood ahead of one of the biggest events Croke Park has ever seen.
