Garth Brooks has been forced to cancel two of his highly anticipated shows at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland, for June 28 and 29.

According to The Independent, the original run, planned to begin on Friday, June 25, and run for five days, has been shortened after Dublin City Council officials refused to grant a license for the final two days. Furthermore, the entire series of shows seems to be in doubt after the cancellation. 

"I can’t say for sure that the three shows are definitely going to happen now,” concert promoter Peter Aiken told The Independent. Approximately 400,000 tickets have been issued for the sold-out shows, Garth’s first major live shows outside of Las Vegas since 2001.

In other Garth news, his long-awaited tour might be in the works. On the Country Music Hall of Famer’s website, a message reads “The wait is over... 7/7,” hinting at an upcoming announcement on Monday. Stay tuned for more.
