According to a national newspaper today Mcd plan to hold 6 concerts at phoenix park for the summer of 2012.
Who do u say these acts will be ???
Stone Roses (Already Confirmed)
Either The Killers/Paul Mcarthny or Someone else
Florence And The Machine
Snow Patrol(I know it might be too big but they can scale down capacity)
If Slane doesnt happen Foo Fighters instead of SP
I don't really give a rats who plays there so long as they allocate one of the days to a Rock/Metal band (s)
Actually hopefully that could mean we get these guys?
They would sort of have to.
I doubt any other pop stars could sell 80,000 even with their massive mainstream base.
Reckon Lady GaGa will be one anyway as she still has to tour this album and it seems more likely than her doing another 5 concerts at the O2.
Not so sure if Rihanna could sell that many on her own but apart from that I don't think any other days will be allocated to pop acts as headliners.
There is 6 days, you can be pretty sure most of them will be given to rock bands.
I'd say The Killers are a good bet, maybe them with Snow Patrol sub-headlining that would be pretty good value for €63 a day ticket.
I just hope we will hear announcements soon and hopefully this won't turn into 30 pages of speculation.
So with a capacity of 45,000 then it might make it easier to sell out instead of going for 60,000 or 80,000
I heard Foo fighters said at oxegen last year they would be back in ireland in summer 2012. Hopefully they play one of these. Ill be first in line if they are anyway
Really hope no act gets two night. Great chance to attract more better lineups for varying bands. I can still see lady gaga getting two of the nights tho which is stupid.
Good shout, Never thought of them but you may be onto something here.
With a good support line up they'll easily sell it out, and Sabbath always have a great support for the big outdoor gigs, and normally newer and younger heavier bands too.
Even though i can't stand what Sabbath has become now i'll probably go
Two Door Cinema Club
Foster and the People
that leaves U2 to play Slane
Two Door Cinema Club & Foster and the People headlining a 45,000 Phoenix Park gig.
BARMAN, I'll have a pint of what this guy's drinking please
Course not head-ling, just as long as these bands are playing along with the bigger acts I'll be happy
