Garth Brooks to make it up to Irish fans

Looks like we mightn't have missed the dance after all.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 2, Garth Brooks has said that he would like to return to Ireland at the end of his current world tour, to “make it up” to his Irish fans.

We all know the story of the cancelled five shows at Croke Park last summer, and know at least one Irish fan who had to part with their ticket and pre-booked accommodation during the saga - but maybe this will put a smile back on their face.

Speaking to Irish comedian Patrick Kielty, Garth Brooks said he wants to make it up to his Irish fans with more gigs.

Although the comments were cut from the radio interview given it's UK audience, Kielty has confirmed the news to the Irish Daily Star.

"We did talk about the Ireland thing, but because the show was going out on Radio 2 and there's a lot of mainland country fans, [Garth] said, 'Well it was one of those things, we couldn't make it work' and he was gutted and he wants to try and fit it back in the tour and all these things," the radio DJ said.

Though as Brooks is touring the US at the moment, and is then making plans for a European tour, it is said to be three or four years before he makes it back to our shores.

Sigh …

Until then we'll just have to make-do with YouTube :
