The organisers of Garth Brooks’ 5-night run at Croke Park in Dublin, say fans are in for an extravaganza.
The gigs, that begin on Friday, are being described as the biggest cultural event to hit Ireland.
The five concerts this Friday (9th), Saturday (10th) and Sunday (11th) - with two more shows next weekend (16th and 17th) - come eight years after Garth Brooks famously cancelled five sold out shows here at Croke Park.
Jim Clark from Aiken Promotions says it’s about putting that right;
"The unique cultural element of this is that, I don't think ever before we've had so many people from the country as a whole. This is a celebration right across Ireland."
Superintendent Martin Mooney says there will be extra buses, trains and trams operating;
"From 3pm the hard cordon goes in place, and that basically means the roads around the environs of Croke Park go into lockdown".
There’s no support act so people are being advised to arrive on time, with gates open at 5 o'clock and the show starting at 7.30pm sharp.
