Garth Brooks has been forced to cancel two of his highly anticipated shows at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland, for June 28 and 29.
According to The Independent, the original run, planned to begin on Friday, June 25, and run for five days, has been shortened after Dublin City Council officials refused to grant a license for the final two days. Furthermore, the entire series of shows seems to be in doubt after the cancellation.
“I can’t say for sure that the three shows are definitely going to happen now,” concert promoter Peter Aiken told The Independent. Approximately 400,000 tickets have been issued for the sold-out shows, Garth’s first major live shows outside of Las Vegas since 2001
Meantime, we are waiting impatiently for Garth Brook’s big news from his press conference this Thursday!
Kenny Chesney next cd, The Big Revival, is set for release Sept. 23. The project’s first single is “American Kids.”
In an interview published by the Hollywood Reporter in August, he announced his intention to take the summer of 2014 off from touring to record a new album.
Chesney co-produced The Big Revival with Buddy Cannon. Guests include Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski, as well as his “You and Tequila” duet partner, Grace Potter.
“I think in anyone’s life, there are times when you just need to shake things up, really push yourself and find the thrill of what you do again,” Chesney said. “I went to dirt-floor church revivals with my grandma as a little kid, and that power is electric. Scared me to death, but it shows you what it means to be alive. I think bringing that sort of passion to how you live your life is everything — and it’s so easy to lose touch with.”
