It was to be the comeback of a lifetime — after a 15-year hiatus, Garth Brooks was officially breaking his retirement with five sold-out shows in Ireland for 400,000 fans.

Today (July 8), though those plans have come to a halt.

A statement from Aiken Promotions, the company behind setting up the five shows, has confirmed Brooks’ decision to pull out of all five concerts in Croke Park.

According to The Journal, the Dublin City Council refused to grant a license for two of the five concerts. Brooks has been adamant that it was “all five shows or none at all.” He later added that to choose which shows to do and not to do would “be like asking to choose one child over another.”

Aiken Promotions issued a statement on the concert decision earlier today:

It is with great regret that Aiken Promotions today announce that the 5 concert Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event at Croke Park has been cancelled.

No concerts will take place. The ticket return process will be outlined tomorrow.

Aiken Promotions have exhausted all avenues regarding the staging of this event.

We are very disappointed for the 400,000 fans who purchased tickets for The Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event.
