Brooks insists that if he can’t perform at all of his five shows at Dublin’s Croke Park stadium, he won’t be performing at any of them. Dublin City Council has refused to issue licenses for two of Brook’s shows. The cancelling of the two end shows will effect approximately 160,000 fans who bought tickets in advance for the concerts.
I can’t thank the people of Ireland enough for how welcome they have made me feel.I have faith that Dublin City Council will make the best decision for the people of Ireland. For us, it is five shows or none at all. To choose which shows to do and which shows not to do, would be like asking to choose one child over another. However this plays out, Ireland has my heart and always will.
