Calling all Garth Brooks fans...don’t panic organisers of the Armoy Road Races have confirmed they’re hosting a Garth Brooks tribute evening during Race week.
Following the news that the Garth Brooks’s Dublin shows ‘Ain’t Going Down’ - Ireland’s very own Garth Brooks, Jason Hughes, will be performing live on Thursday 24th July from 9pm at St Olcans Hall, Armoy.
Jason is in big demand and jokes that he has ”been Garth Brooks longer than Garth Brooks”.
William Munnis, Chairman of the Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club stated: “We wanted to entertain people and put on a show, and we think Jason Hughes will do just that.
“We knew people were going to see Garth Brooks as it fell on the same weekend as the Armoy Road Races, however we never thought that this would be the only Garth Brooks act playing that night in all of Ireland!”
Jason will play after the Vintage bike display and tickets can be bought in advance at the Armoy Petrol Station and at the Armoy Club Office during race week or on entry to the hall, doors open at 9pm.
Tickets cost only £8 each - much cheaper than having to travel to Dublin, and much less hassle to get to, and they guarantee that they won’t make the fans camp outside for days just to get a ticket!
So if you’re feeling disheartened and need a Gareth Brooks fix - don’t worry! Come on down to Armoy and remember to gather all your ‘Friends In Low Places’.
Come along to see Garth Brooks ‘In Another’s Eyes’ as Jason Hughes at Armoy Race Week - miss it miss out!!
