No, we’re not joking. The man behind 5 concerts that halted the country for a week, Garth Brooks, has likened not getting to play Croke Park to losing one his family members.
Brooks told The Daily Telegraph:
“I’m not trying to be dramatic, but my wife would sit here and tell you, I’ve never seen him ache like that for anything other than loss of family. I mourned that and I still am, to tell the truth. Hurts like hell.”
“It was always the place where you couldn’t start a song, two words and it’s gone, they’re taking over. That’s the way music should be. When you hear them singing your stuff in Croke Park, it’s like heaven.”
Now who doesn’t like Garth Brooks, but seriously, who knew he was THAT into playing here? He’s one of the good ones and as far as TheLiberal.ie is concerned, he’s welcome back anytime he likes.
