Garth Brooks says he has no plans to play Cork
Sorry guys.

GARTH BROOKS HAS no plans to play in Cork next year, according to his spokesperson.

There was speculation the country music star would play in Páirc Uí Chaoimh in summer 2017 after the Lord Mayor of Cork, Des Cahill, said talks about staging a gig were underway.

However, a spokesperson for Brooks told “We know of no such plans on his schedule.”

Cahill told the Neil Prendeville Show on Red FM Brooks and Adele were being lined up to play the newly-renovated venue.

He said negotiations with both stars are underway, stating: “June was the date I heard for Garth Brooks and July was the date I heard for Adele.”

Brooks’ fans were left heartbroken two years ago when he cancelled concerts planned for Croke Park.

Aiken Promotions had planned to bring the country singer to Dublin for five concerts, but the gigs were scrapped after Dublin City Council only licenced three.

Adele played the 3Arena in Dublin back in March.
