GARTH BROOKS FANS bought almost a quarter of a million tickets in just 90 minutes this morning, with three dates in Croke Park completely selling out.
The total of 240,000 tickets means just under one admission was sold for every 25 people in Ireland, including the North.
According to the promoters of the huge comeback event, it is the first time an artist has sold out three dates at Croke Park in one day.
Peter Aiken of Aiken Promotions said: “In 52 years of business this is the fastest selling concert Aiken Promotions have ever been involved in.”
Garth Brooks’ manager Bob Doyle also released a short statement. “We’re thrilled,” he said.
