GARTH BROOKS' Irish fans have vowed their allegiance to the singer, despite the fact that they have been left bitterly disappointed after his five dates in Croker were axed.

Cameron Cloke – who became a viral hit after his parents pretended they were unable to get Garth tickets and put a video of his reaction online – burst into tears as he found out that the Oklahoma singer would not take to the Dublin stage after all.

The schoolboy had been due to attend on the Sunday night, and had his special T-shirt and cowboy hat at the ready. His father Michael, who was due to attend two of the concerts, said that his 10-year-old son was "very upset" last night.

"Since we told him he has just been crying," he explained. "He hasn't been happy at all."

Meanwhile, super fan Joanne St John (right) said that she can understand why the 52-year-old "doesn't feel welcome" here anymore.

This was her third attempt to see the singer, after flying to Las Vegas on two occasions for her 30th birthday and her honeymoon where the country singer had a residency.

However, on both occasions he was not performing at the time and the Tipperary resident was hoping that this third time would be a charm.

"I am absolutely devastated, heartbroken," the disappointed woman said last night.

She is the owner of the Garth Brooks fan page on Facebook that was set up 18 months ago to let the singer know "we hadn't forgotten him and that hopefully he hadn't forgotten us".
