Country superstar Garth Brooks has added a fourth date to his sell-out comeback concerts in Ireland due to huge demand. The Red Solo Cup hitmaker announced last month (Jan14) that he is warming up for his upcoming world tour return with three dates at Dublin's Croke Park in July (14). The gigs mark his first performances in the country since 1997, and his first major shows since he stepped out of the spotlight in 2001, and after the 200,000 tickets available sold out in less than an hour on Thursday (30Jan14), Brooks has added another date. Remarking on troubles for fans in the city of Limerick, where cops had to be called following skirmishes outside a ticket-selling venue, Brooks says, "I heard there may have been some difficulties in Limerick. "We're going to make sure that those people who want the tickets, get the tickets. They were sweet enough to stand in line." Peter Aiken, from the event's organiser Aiken Promotions, adds, "It is hard to believe that an artist could play four nights in a row at Croke Park, but thanks to the co-operation of Croke Park and the huge support of the fans we are delighted to be announcing today this fourth date for The Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event." Brooks will follow up the shows with a world tour, which is slated to kick off in the autumn (14).
