July 10, 2014 03:35:57 GMT


Garth Brooks hasn't totally given up on his five shows at Dublin's Croke Park, which have all been scrapped after the city's council denied to approve permits for two of the gigs. Following the cancellation, the country star penned a letter to Peter Aiken of Aiken Promotions, telling him he's still hoping to play the concerts.

"I cannot begin to tell you how badly my heart is breaking right now," he said before explaining his all-or-nothing decision. "I hope you understand that to play for 400,000 people would be a dream, but to tell 160,000 of those people that they are not welcomed would be a nightmare. To do what the city manager suggests (play three shows and not all five) means I agree that is how people should be treated and I just can't agree to that."

July 09, 2014 09:06:36 GMT


Robin Thicke's latest album, "Paula", is a disaster. The LP has bowed at No. 200 on the Official U.K. Chart after selling 530 copies in its first week. That's only 2% of its predecessor "Blurred Lines" which opened on the chart with 25,981 back in 2013.

Still, that's considered a huge flop as "Blurred Lines" last year made its debut at No. 1 on the same chart with 177,000.
