Garth Brooks: I’ve been waiting forever for this

Garth Brooks said he had been waiting his whole life for his five concerts at Dublin’s Croke Park.

The US country music superstar will perform at the stadium over the course of 10 days, with the first show beginning this Friday.

The 60-year-old held a press conference in Dublin on Thursday afternoon, where he got emotional as he spoke of his excitement and nervousness ahead of Friday’s opening night.

“I’ve been waiting for this my whole life,” he said.

“I’ll stop waiting tomorrow night.”

In total, around 400,000 people are expected to attend the concerts, with all counties represented and at least 5% of ticket holders coming from outside Ireland.

“It’s all starting to get really real, which is great,” he said. “I’ve waited forever for this.”

He said he doesn’t care about the bad weather forecast and said he will be “dancing in the rain”.

Wearing a hoodie and blue jeans instead of his signature cowboy hat, Brooks arrived in Ireland on Wednesday with his wife Trisha Yearwood.

He described the stage as “pretty amazing” and urged people to get to the venue early and use public transport.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and there is no support act before Brooks’ performance.

“People might get tired because I haven’t come here to play for five minutes,” he said.

“I came here to try to enforce the curfew. We’re really excited.

But he was quick to add that the show would end at 10:30 p.m. as scheduled.

“We will comply with this curfew,” he said.

“So our job is to squeeze as much fun into that three-hour window as we can.”

He also said his fans are boss of what happens on the night.

“If they’re tired, I let them go home earlier,” he said.

“If they seem to want more of it, they’ll get more than they could ever want and they’ll regret wanting more, trust me.”

“We are very happy to be here. So happy,” he added.

There is particular interest in the event as Brooks’ five concerts in 2014 were canceled following a licensing dispute with locals around the venue and local authorities.

Dublin City Council said at the time it would only issue licenses for three of the concerts at the Dublin venue, but the singer refused to perform unless all five would take place.

In November 2021, following popular demand for two Garth Brooks concerts at Croke Park, three more dates have been added: September 11th, 16th and 17th.

Due to the large attendance, organizers are warning people to plan their travel to and from Croke Park as there is only one car park with space for 400 cars near the venue and traffic restrictions will be in place near the venue.

Persons under the age of 14 are not permitted in the general admission/pitch area and bags must be smaller than A4 and will be searched on the way to the venue.

Visitors are also asked to check the date on their tickets and are reminded that the show starts at 7:30pm and the gates open at 5pm. Garth Brooks: I’ve been waiting forever for this
