I had a blast in Ireland a few weeks ago in December, but it looks like I might have to make another trip across the pond in the summer! Garth Brooks has announced that he will be returning to Dublin for the first time in seventeen years at the same place he performed at in 1997, Croke Park.

The shows will take place on July 25th and 26th of this year, and Garth jokes and says that he's about 30 pounds heavier than he was in 1997, but we've all gained a little weight, huh? Tickets go on sale on January 30th for these two shows.

As much as it was beautiful to be in Dublin during Christmas time, I have to admit, summer time might be an even better time to visit if Garth Brooks will be there!
