Two of Garth Brooks’ five Croke Park gigs have been cancelled, with the others reportedly in jeopardy. And as is usually the way, virtually everyone is to blame for this debacle.

Aiken Promotions, for selling approximately eight billion tickets before permission was granted. Dublin City Council, for being so tardy in granting it (or not, as the case may be).

The Croke Park residents, for failing to spot that they were moving in next to a gigantic stadium and then whining all the time about everything.
