Garth Brooks, the country singer whose hit songs have often crossed over and appealed to massive pop music audiences in the past, may be facing legal concerns with his performance planed for Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland, according to a Yahoo! News report on Friday.
Can anyone imagine a venue not wanting Garth Brooks to perform?
The concern is that residents in the area are opposed to Garth Brooks’ concerts which are to be held in Coke Park. There are to be five concerts there, and locals have notified Brooks’ concert organizers – Aiken Promotions - that they will go as far as pursuing legal action if the plans for the concerts continue.
An open letter from the Croke Park Residents Committee just released states that the committee believes the concerts will not only be out of legal alignment with existing clauses in Croke Park’s permission to hold the event, but it also fails to do what is required by law in regard to the United Nations charters on human rights.
The letter states that there was no consultation with the Croke Park Residents Committee prior to the announcement of the Garth Brooks concerts by Aiken Promotions or any other company or person involved with the concerts.
The group is adamant about not having the concerts at that location, but they have suggested alternative locations for the concert to be held. The organization says they will take its concern to court if necessary.
