New Concert Rules To Be Announced Today In Response To Garth Brooks Fiasco
New legislation is to be announced later today in response to the infamous cancellation of five Garth Brooks concerts last year.
There was a national outcry last summer when country entertainer Brooks cancelled all five concerts at Croke Park, when he was only given permission for three by Dublin City Council.
According to The Irish Examiner, several meetings have been held by a review group since the debacle and a series of new rules surrounding the staging of large-scale events have been put in place.
It's understood that an announcement on the measures will be made later today.
Over 400,000 people were left disappointed when the highly anticipated 'Comeback Special' was cancelled, with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny and several international figures among those who intervened in an effort to secure the gigs.
Brooks recently raised hopes again after he told comedian and presenter Patrick Kielty that he still hopes to return to Ireland at the end of his current world tour.
