    Rumours the boss will play here in the 3arena near the end of 2019. Not with the E street band though

    I have thought this for a few months now
    they have also retweeted / liked a lot of posts on Twitter where fans are speculating the same

    Snow Patrol are doing a small venue / acoustic / reworked tour in winter not sure if that will fall into the 2019 part of winter or spill into 2020

    are they ever gonna drop the "and Adam Lambert" bit.

    Lots of bands change members/singers.
    Surely there's nobody going who's gonna be suprised to see it's not Freddy Mercury singing.
    And I can't think reminding people that Adam Lambert is there boosts ticket sales.

    Any idea why they do it?

    It's Queen + Adam Lambert, the very same way they billed it as Queen + Paul Rodgers; in that way, they're seen as collaborators, not "new" members of Queen.

    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.

    Mmmm I think it works for both parties. Adam Lambert wants to keep building his brand and getting his name out there and Queen want to retain their brand as a four piece (albeit with two now).

    As a huge Queen fan, I've avoided seeing these iterations of their tour but I think after all the great reviews, I'll finally bite the bullet and go so hopefully they'll play next year.

    Is it too much to hope for that they’ll play Slane 2020?! Seen them both times they’ve played here in 3arena and Marlay Park and they were fantastic. Really hoping they come back next year.

    Explosions in the Sky in February at Vicar Street


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,426 ✭✭✭ILikeBoats


    Do Explosions in the sky have any songs with lyrics?

    I'd just know their Friday Night Lights stuff

    No, don't think so (samples with speech would be about it)

    The FNL stuff is very representative of their usual stuff

    Westlife planning another UK/Ire summer tour for 2020

    Doing a nationwide one would be up there alley
    PUC in Cork or Thomond Park
    Perse Stadium Galway
    Nowlan Park Kilkenny (Instead of a Dublin gig)
    A Northern Irish outdoor venue

    Yes likely to be Croke Park again with Cork, Belfast and Galway also

    Dublin will be the first venture for Slipknot on their 2020 tour, they've sent around a cryptic email that's easily sussed, Dublin followed by Manchester so no Belfast for those wondering.

    So expect official confirmation quite soon.

    Gojira, volbeat and behemoth supporting in the states on the current tour.... now that’s a lineup that I’d be very interested in if that’s what makes it way here.

    Especially gojira I think they’d put on a fantastic show in any anywhere near full 3 Arena.
