    Doesn't matter really. Half the population of Laois will be at this gig. Slippery When Wet was only released in the midlands last year.

    D4 will be full of day trippers in white tshirts and Lee jeans carrying lunch boxes full of egg mayonnaise sandwiches and Capri Suns.

    "G'wan Jahnny".

    I think that's great. Always wanted to see them live. RDS is much more desirable than Croker, and now we can get additional concerts.

    was all set to go to croker as i thought it was there , then this crap

    was at it twice in RDS , got it's crap and the sound is shiite

    skipping this one

    The last time I was at the RDS for a show was Bruce Springsteen in 2012 and prev Bon Jovi he year before. Find the place a little bit run down and in bad need of a refurb esp the Angelsesa stand area. RDS is a great location though but being a full wallet as it's D4 after all

    Prob go too this and hoping prices are ok but All concerts seem to be €100+ nowadays

    I'd say he'll be 70 for a standing ticket and 90 for pitch 1 standing. Remember Elton John and Fleetwood Mac are both on that week too, and I think EJs second gig clashes.

    I saw Killers in the RDS last year with Franz Ferdinand. The set up was good, it was a sunny day and the grassy areas outside the stadium were full of bars and food trucks. Inside the stadium was decent, but I was pitch 1, pitch 2 looked a bit ****. So if you can afford the extra couple of quid it's worth it.

    Its tough for Jon to get by on a farmers income ,he has to do a few gigs to make ends meet.
    Hope he had a good harvest this year.

    €89 plus booking fee is on the concert poster.

    €89 will be for GA
    GC will be more than that closer to €100 I’d say

    Then you will have all the packages and the VIP section at the front on one side of the stage, if the UK set up is anything to go by.

    No, think he only played as a one off for the R&R HOF Induction recently

    No, didn't himself and the Mrs support Bad Company in the 3.O2 last year?


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,607 ✭✭✭✭NIMAN


    BJ are a shadow of their former selves at this stage.

    Without Sambora and JBJs hammered voice, this isn't a concert to get you excited.

    They are like a BJ tribute band these days.

    I'd expect GC to be well over €100. Diamond is absolutely forget it unless you have a gold credit card.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,745 ✭✭✭roadmaster


    I don’t think we will ever see them like this again but this is Jon and Richie at the best and Richie is needed back Richie Phil x and John shanks together on stage would make a very interesting performance guitar wise

    There's a gate on the streets into the RDS which you can see the stage from for free. You always see guards standing there watching

    Anyone got any presale codes for this?

    He? I know Richie is gone but Bon Jovi are still a band.

    For the UK, gold circle is £137.50 and general standing is £83.70.


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


    If anyone has a presale code going spare could you let me know please?

    Sadly, I'd agree. I seen them yonks ago when they were here for the Crush tour (2000/2001?) and they were outstanding.Can't believe Jon's voice has gotten so bad so quickly, it's actually sad looking at him trying to sing :(

    He's really struggling on the vocals there.

    It's sad to see, he had a majestic voice. The band there are carrying him big time :(

    Jon might get his voice perfect again for the new tour

    He has enough $$$ to hire the best vocal coaches and doctors
