Five Garth Brooks concerts were cancelled in Ireland. Here's how Twitter reacted
Tuesday, 4.45pm. News breaks that all five Garth Brooks concerts at Croke Park, Dublin have been cancelled.
Journalists rush to make the big announcement
At first, there is denial.
Followed quickly by anger
Ticket holders start bargaining
As does US diplomat Richard Haass (who knew his rates were so cheap?)
Comedian Tim McGarry steps in as international peacekeeper
But frankly, Belfast starts to look a little desperate.
After many Unanswered Prayers, depression sets in.
And as we realise our dreams of seeing Garth at Croke Park
were no More Than A Memory - acceptance.
Erm... no, we don't really get this one either.
But even if we 'Ain't Goin' Down' to Dublin, it will all be OK...
Just keep calm and line dance.
