    Was only ever the one Hard Rock Cafe in Manchester, it was grand but like many franchises a little gimmicky and not the cheapest

    menu here, not cheap, but thought it would be pricier, beers are at the end.

    5.90 for a guinness, 6.50 for a heineken

    If I can't go to a "photo ID" required gig are the tickets effectively useless ? I'd much prefer to donate them to a friend.

    Anyone have this issue when using Ticketmaster on Chrome Browser ?? Every time i hit 'Find Tickets' this comes up

    All things being equal - which seats are the best in Croke Park? Looking to bring our daughter and a friend (both 9) to their 1st gig, so want seated instead of standing to make things easier. Anything worth considering?

    From my experience

    Sections 336-330 or 301-307 are the best for gigs

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,470 ✭✭✭ Bawnmore

    Oh really - I had assumed (possibly incorrectly) that they were kind of.....behind.... the stage. I'm obviously not really basing that on anything but assumption. Is that completely wrong?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,470 ✭✭✭ Bawnmore

    Is this true, or are you taking the p*&$ out of me? 🙂

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,092 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009

    Nope was in some of those sections for gigs in the past. Great views and sound

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,091 ✭✭✭ hynesie08

    It's in the round, so a circular stage that Sheeran will move around, judging by that stage plan, there'll be some sort of screen in front of the hill, so something around 308/328 should give you a view of both without killing your neck.....

    Thanks for the photos - I see what you mean. From the ticketmaster illustration above, it looks like the stage in this case is much more forward than that, so I just wanted to double check!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,470 ✭✭✭ Bawnmore

    Gotcha - in that case 308/328 or similar sounds like a good shout.

    Thanks folks - appreciate the help!

    I'm heading to a gig in Whelan's next weekend. Just wondering do they still give free entry to the late bar after gigs these days? Or do you have to go out an queue up for the late bar/club again?

    Anyone have any luck with Ticketmaster regarding ticket exchange, that is to say swapping seats in one place for somewhere else? Got 2 seated for the Cure in the presale as there were no standing showing at the time. There are now. Sent of a request to switch them. Anyone fancy my chances?

    My dog eat my tickets :(

    Seriously, I have 4 tickets to an upcoming concert, but the dog got her teeth into one of them. The ticket is destroyed. Is there anything I can do? Will ticketmaster issue a replacement? I've been on their website and gone to the "submit a request to ticketmaster", but the drop down menu doesn't give me a suitable option. Anyone got any advice on what to do next?

  • Registered Users Posts: 282 ✭✭ spindex

    Contact ticketmaster, say that you never received any tickets. They will issue replacements which you may have to pick up at a box office on the night of the show. Don't mention the dog story.

    Is there a specific thread here for swapping/selling tickets? I have 2 Standing Dua Lipa tickets for Thursday 21st April (the gig has been rescheduled about 3 times) and would love to swap with someone for 2 tickets for the previous night, Wednesday 20th April. As luck would have it, I've a good friend's wedding on the Thursday.

    I've already posted on DoneDeal and wondering if there are other places I should try...bit of a long shot but I really want to go to the concert if I can and both dates are sold out on Ticketmaster.

    Not sure if this is the right place for it - heading up to Croke Park for Ed Sheeran with the kids - is there any recommended parking worth considering? We'll be coming up from Galway and heading back on the same night if that's important.

    Is the Croke Park pitch covered during concerts?

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,952 ✭✭✭✭ sammyjo90

    It was the last time i went..Not sure if it goes all the way back but it had white hard plastic if i recall correctly

  • Registered Users Posts: 199 ✭✭ Lightscribe

    I don't know if this will be seen here but I'll ask anyway.

    I have tickets for Ed's concert in Limerick on Friday night but they're only in the Ticketmaster app and need a code to activate which will be text to my phone when I request it.

    It looks like I may not be able to go now is there any way of selling the tickets?

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,320 ✭✭✭✭ Rothko

    I'm looking to get a ticket for a gig in Vicar Street. Now, every time I've been there before I've been in the standing section but this is sold out.

    So, my options are either to get a seated or standing ticket for the balcony. It seems that the standing ticket would give a bit more freedom but I'm just wondering what experience others have had with regards to this and which they would recommend.

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,092 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009

    It's a small enough standing area, avoid getting the seats that are directly behind the standing area because you'll be spending your evening looking at people's backs

    Was in the one of the side balconies before and it was a very good view

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,091 ✭✭✭ hynesie08

    The seats directly behind the standing area aren't for sale for standing gigs, so you've no fear of that.

    Standing in the balcony is at the back behind the seats, can be alright if the band are good enough.

    I really don't remember security ever checking what my ticket said once I was inside though. Do with that information what you will.

    I'm going to a gig in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham this week and was wondering what opinions are on the venue? Never been before. We'll be getting the luas so not worried about transport.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,091 ✭✭✭ hynesie08

    It's a rectangular field, it has all the benefits of being rectangular (pretty good view from everywhere) and the drawbacks of a field (being outside in Ireland), there's nothing massively interesting or unique about it, it's just an open green space in the middle of the city.

  • Registered Users Posts: 409 ✭✭ newbie18892

    Thanks. Sounds decent. Do you have any idea about the capacity? I read 5k and 10k online so curious which it is.

    I think it's about 12k, the 5k is for festivals where you've multiple stages and shiz.
