The "miracle" Garth Brooks hinted at on Monday is turning into a reality, with five shows now on sale.
After massive demand and reports of tens of thousands of fans in virtual ques to get tickets, Garth Brooks has announced three more shows at Croke Park next September, bringing the number of gigs to five.
The initially announced two shows went on sale this morning, with some fans sharing on Twitter that there were over 30,000 people ahead of them in the virtual queue attempting to get a ticket.
As rumoured, due to the fact that permission had been given for the country singer to play three more nights, Garth Brooks then revealed later this morning that he will also play Croke Park on September 11, 16 and 17.
At a press conference at the venue on Monday, Brooks said that it would be a "miracle" to sell out five shows again as he did in 2014.
"What happened in 2014 was a frickin' miracle," Brooks said. "I mean — who does numbers like that? There's no way we're going to do that number again. I can't see us doing five. Would I like it? Yes. I would love it. Is it going to happen? I think it would be impossible."
In an exciting part of the Q&A, the 'Friends in Low Places' singer also stated that he will pick "local and emerging talent" to support him at the shows.
"Please don't think I'm twisted or sick; but I love to put a new artist in front of 70,000 people," he explained. "Just pat 'em on the butt 'go get 'em!' And watch what happens."
Tickets are on sale now for all five of Garth Brook's gigs at Croke Park next September here.
