HAVING spent 28 hours at the head of a very orderly queue, Norah Murphy from Kilkishen finally got her just rewards at nine o’clock on Thursday. First into The Irish Shop, Ennis, Nora purchased six tickets for the Saturday night Garth Brooks’s concert in July.
The valuable as gold tickets are for the sixth tier of the Hogan Stand; she had no great choice in the matter as all the standing tickets had already been whipped up.
Well, who’s going to enjoy the tickets along with Norah?
“My boyfriend, Martin Owen Walsh; my sister and her fiance and my parents, Eamon and Mary. I’m really looking forward to the event, she said. “It was well worth wait”, she added.
David and Eileen Woodford, of The Irish Shop had Ticketmaster personnel on hand to ensure that the
computer sales went like clockwork. They were very impressed at how the queue had worked and the
fact that everybody was in great humour.
All three dates for The Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event are now sold out. In excess of 10,000 people queued around the country at Ticketmaster outlets and the entire 240,000 tickets sold out in just 90 minutes. This is the first time that an artist has sold out three dates at Croke Park in one day.
Bob Doyle, Garth Brooks manager said ‘We’re thrilled.”
“In 52 years of business this is the fastest selling concert Aiken Promotions have ever been involved in,” Peter Aiken said.
