Garth Brooks set to return and play Croke Park after success of Bruce Springsteen
Will his Friends in Low Places make it finally happen?
Following the Garth Brooks-Croke Park saga of 2014, it looks like it's finally time for the country singer to return to the emerald isle.
According to the Irish Sun, the success of The Boss' weekend touring in Dublin has given Brooks' and his management some serious ideas.
Reportedly, a clip of the Taoiseach rocking out on his air guitar at Croke Park over the weekend has influenced the country singer's sudden decision.
A concert source told the paper:
"The message we got from Garth’s people is we need to talk urgently and get these Irish concerts sorted soon...
"So much that went wrong before with Garth’s concerts was down to officialdom in Ireland...
"So to have the Taoiseach making such a public show of how he was enjoying a concert at Croke Park is significant.”

Reportedly, Bruce's weekend in Dublin has generated €16 million euro for our economy but if Garth played his five shows that he was planned to play in 2014, it would've brought a whopping €60 million to our shores.
Definitely food for thought.
Who knew Enda's seriously cringy dancing would attract musicians to our country?
Keep on rockin' Enda.
