Tickets are on sale for the same price as in 2014 – €81 for seated and €65.45 for standing for two dates on September 9 and 10 2022.
A spokesperson for Aiken said: “In 2007 when Garth Brooks announced he was stepping away from music to spend more time with his children, he famously told the crowd at his final concert at the Sprint Centre in the US, ‘I promise, if you wait for me, I’ll be back’.”
“In 2014 he made good on that promise, returning to the world stage with a red hot tour which saw him sell out arenas across the US.
“In March 2019 he then rolled out The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour, which has set new stadium attendance records at every venue so far, with Pollstar deeming it the bestselling country music tour of 2019.
“He was most certainly back.
“Today Garth has made good on that promise once more, as Aiken Promotions announced that he will be returning to play Croke Park Dublin for two dates in September.”

Garth has 20 Billboard #1 singles to his credit. In March 2020, Billboard announced that he was the first artist to garner top-5 singles at country radio (across Billboard and Mediabase charts) across five consecutive decades–the 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s and 20s. His run on the airplay charts began with his first single, “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)” in 1989 and has continued most recently with “Dive Bar,” his duet with Blake Shelton. During that time, his music has filled the radio airwaves with timeless classics that earned a place in the American songbook, including “The Dance,” “Friends in Low Places,” “The River,” and “If Tomorrow Never Comes.”
