Garth Brooks has added a fifth Irish date.
Thousands of fans queued overnight around the country for their chance to get their tickets.
The fourth concert sold out in 29 minutes and a fifth date was announced this morning afterwards.
Tickets for the fifth date - which will be on Tuesday July 29 - are now officially sold out.
In Cork on Patrick Street, the line of people waiting grew so large that it wrapped around to the quays.
In Dublin, Stephen's Green shopping centre swarmed with country fans singing their idol's songs as they patiently waited for the golden tickets.
Ticketmaster Ireland once again reported a 'high demand' for tickets today. The fifth date is expected to be his last Irish date.
"It's a busy morning and we're selling tickets fast," Ticketmaster wrote on their Twitter page.
"To ensure fair access some of you may see queue pages. Please follow the instructions."
In total, around 400,000 people will see Garth Brooks play in Croke Park this year. That's around 1/10 of the Irish adult population.
The singer will make €26m from the concerts.
