Fifth date for Garth sells out – total of 400k tickets

Tickets for a fifth Garth Brooks concert have sold out.

Tickets for a fourth date went on sale this morning, with organisers announcing a fifth date which went on sale immediately after the fourth sold out.

400,000 tickets went on sale for the five dates – 8.7% of the population of the Republic of Ireland.

Fan had queued for hours ahead of this morning's sale for a fourth date after the phenomenal demand for the first three concerts.

Tickets for the fourth date went on sale at 9am, selling out in approximately 30 minutes. The fifth date was announced almost immediately.

The fifth date sold out shortly after noon.

While thousands queued or attempted to secure tickets, others expressed their bemusement at the star's incredible popularity on social networks.

Meanwhile, Croke Park residents have hit out at the number of gigs scheduled to take place at the stadium.

The Clonliffe and Croke Park Area Residents Association says they are completely incensed and disgusted at the proposals to run nine concerts at the venue this summer.

They said they have been let down by politicians, council officials and gardai who have done nothing to alleviate the disruption over the last 20 years.
