Garth Brooks - Garth Brooks' Dublin Gigs Spark Anger From Residents

Country superstar Garth Brooks has sparked a bust-up between several residents in Dublin, Ireland and local officials over his upcoming comeback gigs in the city.

The Red Solo Cup hitmaker announced in January (14) that he is warming up for his upcoming world tour return with three dates at Dublin's Croke Park in July (14). Two more concerts were added due to huge demand from Irish fans.

However, many residents living near the arena aren't as pleased with the extension - they had already agreed with bosses from the Gaelic Athletic Association (Gaa), which runs the venue, that no more than three concerts were to be held there each year due to concerns over noise and disruption.

Now a mediator has been drafted in from Ireland's Labour Relations Commission to help strike a deal between the two parties after residents threatened to take legal action, potentially scuppering Brooks' highly-anticipated residency.

In a letter, Gaa Director General Paraic Duffy writes, "We are determined to reach a long term agreement around the staging of events in Croke Park."

A public meeting will be held on the matter in due course.
