It's RAG Week in college this week and funds are in horrifically short supply . Would standing tickets likely sell out on the morning would anyone think?



I just bought mine this second from the presale, as that hasn't sold out yet I can't see a great demand for them come Thursday morning!

Only €39?? If your attitude is prevalent then they won't have trouble selling it out, but I would have my doubts, way too big a venue for them and too high a ticket price. Presume that's twice the price of the tripod gig or as near as.


yeah I do think its too big a venue for them and doubt they will sell it out but they are pretty huge now compared to 5 years ago (headlining Coachella I think) and I didnt pay much less for a ticket then. Would much prefer if they played Olympia or somewhere like that.

Heard this morning that the Black Keys will be playing the O2 Dublin on the 22nd August.

Will be great to see them live having missed their Tripod gig in '10, but why do I get the feeling that because it is in the 02, it will be full of 14 year olds singing away to lonely boy and talking their way through everything else they dont know. Seems like a huge venue for them to fill based on the back of one fantastic song (which a majority of people are going to know them by).

I'll be there regardless!!


Old reply but,

Myself and a friend are going (We both thankfully know them from other songs, my own and my favorite song of theirs being Keep me)
But sadly you're probably be right, it more then likely will be filled by annoying children (16 myself but not a douche) if it is even sold out.

+1. I absolutely love the Black Keys, andI saw them in the Alexandra Palace in London the week before last. Except for the songs off El Camino and one or two others, the venue, a great big f*ck off ballroom which is a bit smaller than the O2, was too big for their sound. There was no production to speak of (as you'd expect), but tunes like Money Maker and 10 Cent Pistol suffered because of it. The Olympia would be a great venue, and I would sell my granny to see them play I Got Mine in the Academy

Also, most of the crowd didn't know their older stuff. There was so much "song's over" applause during breaks in songs that they paused for what seemed like a minute during 10 Cent Pistol, presumably for the craic.

I've only ever seen 'keep me' played live once on youtube, when you went did they play it by any chance? It is my goal in life to see it preformed live at the mo'

No, they didn't play Keep Me. They did finish up with I Got Mine though. I left the gig a very happy man

Set list is in the link below. It's for the night after I saw them, but it's the same:

As long as they keep slagging off Nickelback they'll get new fans!

As long as they keep slagging off Nickelback they'll alienate some fans.

Ill try get a ticket for this based on my plans for August, so I know its a negative thing really; but I hope it doesn't sell out too quickly.

Any guesses for when people think the standing area will sell out for this? Need to save up badly.

Thanks for the set list, was wondering what the one song from Twilight was. That's a pretty solid review, too.

"Perhaps one surprise to the setlist was Chop and Change, a song from the Eclipse soundtrack, from those god awful Twilight movies. The crowd seemed a little lost during this one, unsure if it was a cover song, or an obscure older track. It’s good to know that the Twilight and Black Keys fan bases are mutually exclusive."

Hilarious.

I slightly changed an old concert poster of theirs to make it relevant to Irish show
