Those of you who follow what’s happening in Ireland will be aware of the whole Garth Brooks fiasco – for those not in the know. The Singer was supposed to perform 5 sell out shows at Croke Park, Dublin. Unfortunately the council would only licence 3…..so the compromise was zero and the tour was cancelled. Which was very unfortunate for the people who had booked flights and hotels for the shows!
My good friend John Murphy wrote a topical little ditty called “The night that Garth Brooks nearly came to town” – So here we are performing on the John Murray show on RTE Radio1. Wild Bill Hickey and the Blue Bulls…..never going to make number one, but it’s a bit of fun, and who can resist that?
