— To mark his return to touring after a dozen years, country superstar Garth Brooks will play two stadium shows in Dublin, Ireland’s Croke Park, where he performed sell-out shows in 1997.

The “Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event” will take place July 25 and 26 in anticipation of a world tour this year.

Brooks, 51, retired from touring in 2001, saying he wanted to devote himself to his three daughters until each was ready to go to college. He accepted an offer from hotel magnate Steve Wynn to appear periodically at his Wynn Encore Theatre in Las Vegas for a four-year solo residency because he was able to schedule those performances around his daughters’ school activities.
