Garth Brooks has denied media reports he will be playing any concerts in Ireland next year.

Nancy Seltzer, from the public relations company Nancy Seltzer and Associates that represents Brooks, told The Irish Times the singer had no plans to be in Ireland “at this time”.

“I’m afraid that is not possible (to play next year). He will be touring within the United States, ” she said.

Brooks has sold out a record breaking five concerts at Croke Park this year, which were due to go ahead last July.

Following more than 300 objections from local residents, Dublin City Council rejected plans for two of the concerts.

Brooks subsequently said he would perform all five concerts in Croke Park or none at all.

None of the parties involved could reach a compromise and Brooks cancelled all five concerts.

Ticketmaster refunded the 400,000 ticketholders in mid-July.
