So tickets went on sale this morning. It started with 2 dates in Croker, then after 9 a third was added ..

But now look :D



While I remember back then on the band scene, yes we did our fair share of Garth tracks BUT to this day I still dont get the mania. In saying that I would not be a big country fan. It seems almost religious

Will you be going? Have you got your tickets?

Tickets went on sale at 8am this morning, with around 300,000 people in the online queue to get their hands on tickets at that stage.

It is a Government plot to identify the monsters in your midst - like the "you have won an i phone" scam used to nab drug dealers etc

Residents on CB RTE now .. just not happy at all with the 5, 3 max if at all. So here we go again I imagine

Resident guy said most residents will probably move out when concerts on to leave Brookes make millions off back of Irish people ... ( So I thought, mmm, is that code for we will be renting our properties at a premium .. if you cant beat em join em :D )

WHO PUT UP THIS OP?

In the long nights after Samhain,--- and indeed for the next freakin' year--- every waking moment will be contaminated by people yelping about this character and his appalling sthtick,... and it won't be safe to turn on the radio...and gangs of grannies who should know better will be wearing stetsons and singing out of tune verses of Low Places to oblige the RTE girl with the microphone.....

And busloads of wild Nordies and fans from Monaghan and those strange troglodytes who follow Declan Nerney---they'll all come blinking into the daylight and start yahooing like total poltroons..

The only place, THE ONLY FREAKIN' PLACE I felt safe was on IPO

No Garth Brooks on IPO, I told myself...

And now.... (falls sobbing onto the floor)

Ah yeah .. this lot will definitely be attending :D

Well that's just lost them several million in precast sales as far as I'm concerned.

The man makes wailing sounds, some people love that stuff. I preferred his Chris Gaines alter-ego whining to the "real" Garth.

Between him and Adele it's f** depressing.
Not to derail, but what is it about that diva that has the world grovelling at her feet?

I'm sure she is ok in her own way, but what's with this tantrum-throwing and being interviewed by Oprah and causing someone on television to be sacked because Adele stormed out of the studio in a huff when he admitted he hadn't heard her new song?

And she’s a Tottenham supporter.

Crucify her, I say!

Still, at least she flounced rather than sitting on and being a total arse, like Samuel L. Jackson when the Interviewer mixed him up with Laurence Fishburne

I I didn't see the interview and know nothing about the interviewer in question..

But why should an interviewer lose his job because Adele throws a wobbly and storms off when she finds out he hasn't heard her new album?

The whole world must now grovel at the feet of Saint Adele

The pinnacle of her career was the Oprah interview

The whole thing seems to have gone to her head.

Isn't her latest song a clone of all her other songs?

After sitting in an online queue for what seemed like days, I started at 69677 in the queue, I successfully completed my task. Two tickets, for the 4th concert, almost €200 with postage, admin fees, etc.

Now waiting to see how many other tickets, the extended family and random acquaintances who were also assigned the same task, have been bought.

Mind you my niece, I blame the influence of the culchie partner, is such a fan if there are tickets for all four, she will go to all four.

Now, ETLOT, you can be our IPO representative at the concerts

We will await uploaded photos of Garth gambolling and capering around the stage.....loads of middle aged culchies out of their heads clapping on the off beat, singing out of tune and slurping tequila from plastic beakers

I will be back on the drink by then, and will be feelin' no pain...

So I'll take the whole thing in my stride...no bother...

Presumably COVID precautions will mean no throwing bloomers onto the stage?

Hell no, pink cowboy hats and boots don't suit me but it sounds like you, back on the booze, would be in your element. Will keep you in mind for the spare tickets.

I don't know any of that stuff, I judge her on her so called music which is afukkenpalling.
Some of my musical heroes Bowie, Reed, Neil Young, John Lennon, Iggy Pop, Peter Hook, John Lydon were less than amicable buffers. Not to mention the infamously cantankerous Morrison.

Neil Young once sacked Stephen Stills one of his very best friends by Fax because he didn't think he was worth aphone call.

Stephen excused it by saying that's Neil following his Muse. That's Neil being a complete #### if you ask me.

I had to Google that Sheeran fellow, apparently he is doing an 8 night stadium tour of Ireland, 2 each in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Belfast. He's not setting foot in Connacht. So he's prolly not as thick as he looks.
