Garth Brooks and Bruce Springsteen are set for Croke Park concerts next year. The events promise a welcome boost for Dublin hotels and city tourism.
Dublin City Council received an application last month to hold the outdoor event licence on Saturday and Sunday April 23 and 24 by Aiken Promotions for an internationally known act, almost certainly Bruce Springsteen.and his E Street Band.
The planning year to allow for outdoor concerts being held begins after the month of April annually and a result will not impact on the three gigs being proposed by Brooks and Aiken Promotions which are at an advanced stage with council officials and Croke Park management.
Under planning law, three concerts per year (planning law year) can be held at Croke Park. The mooted additional two concerts proposed by Brooks’ team would be subject to a fresh outdoor application which council sources indicate will “be examined thoroughly and will take into consideration all vested interests.”
