"It didn't go so well last time" - Twitter reacts to alleged Garth Brooks return
The possibility of country star Garth Brooks returning to Croke Park has set Irish Twitter ablaze, with everyone from Blindboy to broadcasters commenting on the potential gigs.
It's seven years since five planned nights at the stadium were all scrapped by Brooks after Dublin City Council granted licenses for just three of the nights. Hundreds of thousands of tickets were refunded to disappointed fans.
News of the potential comeback circulated online yesterday evening and Twitter users had plenty to say:
