    Will they take plastic bottles of you?
    Reckon to make a point, the security will be really tight after the "fiasco" of Slane last weekend:mad:

    Can't wait!

    One more day to go!!! Cannot wait.

    I reckon they should open with Hells Bells. Seems like a perfect opener to me. :)

    Anyone know if there is a bus leaving from Longford. PM if possible.

    Thanks!

    Hey iRock, there is a bus going, there's a sign for it in the music center shop. No idea, just caught my eye the other day. Will be going from Athlone myself.

    Saw a setlist for the tour somewhere - opener was Rock n' Roll Train :)

    Of course it's Rock N Roll Train, the whole intro/entrance is based around it.

    i was at the o2 gig and can say that the setlist is pretty fúcking awesome! i don't care that the show will be the exact same, thats the reason i'm going again :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 190 ✭✭ Lucifer31


    AC/DC have been playing an EXTRA tune at all recent gigs since mid May. It looks like the setlist will be one song longer tomorrow than the gig in the Point, going by the checks I've made. I won't fully give it away in case you don't wanna know, but it's a tune off Let There Be Rock !! See ya'll tomorrow. It's all good...

    Was thinking of approaching from the Blessington side - should be easier no?

    Goffs is Goffs Livestock Sales, they have a car park that will hold 6000+ cars. They used to use Goffs for the Irish Masters snooker tournament until they went all up market and held it in some poncy new hotel in Citywest during the boom years.

    Weather forecast says its to stay dry in the East for Sunday...they better be right .....need something to melt The Blizzards off the stage. Can't believe they are still supposedly the main support act. I hope I have enough voice left to sing along to AC\DC after booing for a full hour.

    Well that's not very nice! I'm not ecstatic about The Blizzards as support act but they're an Irish band dude.

    Great quality recordings. The boys are not as mobile as they were when I saw them 18 years ago in the the Point Depot but fuggit - should be a cracking gig.

    Have never been to Punchestown..
    Is it a decent spot for a gig?
    Any ideas on when they will come on stage?

    Dammit getting excited now. This will be my third ACDC concert and really looking forward to seeing them outdoors!!

    Going down early to soak up all the atmosphere !!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,184 ✭✭✭ Ardent


    Does anyone know if there's going to be a pit at this? And, if there is, can you get pit passes if you arrive early?


  • Registered Users Posts: 513 ✭✭✭ Cormac2791

    last thing I want is for it to be taken on entry - even though every phone has a camera.

    Yea i like punchestown since its only 20 mins from my house :). Its just a open field pretty much also used as a racecourse . I like it venue wise although i think the further you are at the back the sound isnt supposed to be great.
    Cant wait for the gig. Me and my friends are heading to naas at 12ish to get the shuttle bus
