    I just got a message from the Croke Park Community to say that Aiken Promotions will be applying for a licence to hold a concert in Croke Park on Thursday 17th May. Any big acts touring around that time?

    None announced, Pink is supposed to be touring this summer, and she is Aiken, but croker is a stretch for her. Unless they've decided that 50,000 tickets is enough to justify it.

    I hope he does some of his early homilies, latest stuff isn't as good.

    The Rolling Stones are definitely the most likely.
    P!nk is touring in the US in May, so it won't be her.
    Foo Fighters are free, but it'd be one standalone show between the end of their US leg in early May and starting in Europe at the start of June. I can't see that happening.
    Eminem's newly-announced European dates are much later: late June (one date in Oslo) and July. The two Twickenham shows are in mid-July. Nowhere near the May date they're applying for here.
    I think it's probably going to be The Charlie Watts Band.

    2024 Gigs and Events: David Suchet, Depeche Mode, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, The Smile, Pixies, Liam Gallagher John Squire/Jake Bugg, Kacey Musgraves (x2), Olivia Rodrigo, Mitski, Muireann Bradley, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Eric Clapton, Girls Aloud, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, The Smashing Pumpkins/Weezer, P!nk, Pearl Jam/Richard Ashcroft, Taylor Swift/Paramore, Suede/Manic Street Preachers, Muireann Bradley, The Bothy Band, AC/DC, Deacon Blue/Altered Images, The The, blink-182, Coldplay, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Nick Lowe, Public Service Broadcasting, Crash Test Dummies.

    Its not her she has US dates the night before and night after


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,056 ✭✭✭dragonfly!


    Bon Jovi finish their US dates a few days before this - prehaps this would be part of an European leg?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,056 ✭✭✭dragonfly!


    Katy Perry also has a gap between her US dates and her European dates

    Sold less than 40,000 tickets for slane last time they were here, have they released an album since then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,577 ✭✭✭Bonzo Delaney


    GnR start their European tour June 3rd in Berlin
    They could kick off here instead on the 17th May
    Sold 80k in Slane last year with no major support act could fill Croker this year with decent support

    I'd love to see them in Croke Park. Slane is a complete farce, a horrible time last year.

    I really dont understand the hate for Slane. The majority of it comes from delays getting there, or getting out but it's a faulas site for a gig.

    If they were under MCD last year tbey won't be Aiken now..

    The stones probably makes most sense..

    I don't know what faulas means but its a nightmare venue for a gig. A disaster to get to and get out of, sound issues every year, very few bars and toilets, fúck all food and it attracts the worst crowd on planet earth.

  • Registered Users Posts: 223 ✭✭villa2008


    Would love it to be Guns N' Roses, but there is a big gap between the current start of their euro tour of 3rd of June in Berlin and May 17th .

    I think it's got to be The Rolling Stones. I guess we will know soon enough.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,725 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    U2 ticket prices are pretty high wait til we see the prices for the rolling stones

    Expecting Lower level tickets to be €250 or over

    Yeah if its the rolling stones its going to be expensive for tickets. If any band rips off their fans ticket price wise its the Stones.
