That Garth Brooks gig may FINALLY happen in Summer 2017

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 come and give us all the gig of our lives.

Last month, we heard that a viral clip of Enda Kenny rocking out at Bruce Springsteen's gig in Croke Park motivated the country singer and his management to pursue an Irish gig even more intensely.

According to The Irish Times, the Mayor of Cork has spoke of his confidence in securing not only a Garth Brooks gig, but also an Adele concert in the Rebel county.

Both open air events will reportedly be held in the renovated Pairc Ui Chaoimh, with the Lord Mayor Des Cahill saying he is "very confident" in bringing Garth to his legions of fans.

On The Neil Prendeville Show on Cork’s Red FM, councillor Des Cahill spoke of the whispers within the music industry in bringing Garth to Cork.

Des spoke on the show that his information was sourced from both people from the music promotion industry and the Cork County Board within the GAA.

"Negotiations are underway to sign contracts .... June was the date I heard for Garth Brooks and July was the date I heard for Adele."

It was reported before that 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, so Cork would definitely benefit from having the country legend playing there.
