    Hi folks can anybody help me with what are the best seats for the croke park gigs next year please? I can’t figure out if the stage is facing a certain way



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,710 ✭✭✭ hynesie08

    It's an in the round gig, so the stage will be on the middle of the pitch and either Sheeran will move around or the stage will rotate, it seems there'll also be a stage in front of the hill, so for your necks sake, 306-309 or 328 to 330. Or if you can get front row in the upper sections of those.

    There’s no good seats in croker it’s too big

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,999 ✭✭✭ Nigzcurran

    Ah yeah I know! I’m bringing my son to his first concert as he’s mad into Ed Sheeran so just want it to be as good as possible

    For that homicide of Raglan Road he just committed on Jools Holland, I'm having this gig cancelled.

    Seriously, I will raze Croke Park to the ground to stop it.

    Yep I dunno what that was all about. Especially the gazing lovingly at the girl singing with him! Who was she?

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,057 ✭✭✭ Zardoz

    Ed aint the brightest.

    It was supposed to be a New Years Eve show and he blurts out that he just checked his phone and Ipswich were losing at Barrow.

    That match occurred on Dec 15th, I honestly couldn't believe that they left it in the aired show.

    Going to this Gig on Saturday but tickets still are not available to download on the ticketmaster app on my phone. Anyone else having this problem? Ticketmaster customer support is a joke.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,363 ✭✭✭ bennyl10

    do you have the option to request code? then you'll get a text and they'll unlock

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,081 ✭✭✭ Glebee

    Being dragged on Sunday to see the bould Ed... Need to park over towards Fitzwillam Sq / Merrion Sq direction for the day. Is it still free street parking around there of a Sunday or is that long gone??

    Not sure of that exact area but you’ll find free parking close enough to it on a Sunday, maybe down around grand canal street which would be closer to Croker

    6 of us going on Saturday with myself as the lead booker. With how things are now with ticketmaster and tickets is it best to leave all tickets on my phone to scan or distribute them to the other 5. We will all be going in together anyway. Or do they actually check that the lead booker is present like they say?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,884 ✭✭✭ Ginger83

    I received a parking pass for the disabled car park.

    Coming in from M1 so will any of the roads be closed?

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,057 ✭✭✭ Zardoz

    Check the lead booker, lol, for 80k people.

    Nope, there wont be any checks, there never are.

    Really appreciate any info from anyone heading tonight on parking and start times. I'm heading in tomorrow night with two kids so I'm considering driving

  • Registered Users Posts: 34,915 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009

    Enjoy everyone going tonight and over the tour

    Apparently the stage is never before seen and configured for each venue

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,999 ✭✭✭ Nigzcurran

    Yeah it’s gonna be a late finish so driving home would be ideal

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,999 ✭✭✭ Nigzcurran

    Forecast looks good

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,999 ✭✭✭ Nigzcurran

    Pricey enough for parking

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,111 ✭✭✭ flasher0030

    Saw him on Wednesday night in Vicar. Amazing. That's from someone who only knows the songs that would be on radio, TV etc. He seems so genuinely humble.

    I'm kinda getting itch fingers here now for Croke Park. It's only down the road from me.

    If anyone knows of anyone stuck with tickets cause of last minute drop-outs, cant get rid of it and willing to take a nominal amount for it, I can roll up there at any time, given a half hours notice.

    seems from adverts etc. that there will be a lot of tickets going to waste for it, in the same boat as above would like to go as just down the road but couldn't pay 100 odd for it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,999 ✭✭✭ Nigzcurran

    Reckon you’d get them last minute for €50/60 ish

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,385 ✭✭✭ showpony1

    it sort of looks like no one went back to update their ads looking for face value etc, prob end up in the bin.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,999 ✭✭✭ Nigzcurran

    If you see ads on the likes of adverts at this stage I reckon they’ll take anything rather than lose out altogether but be very wary of rip off merchants, check their feedback

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,111 ✭✭✭ flasher0030

    It was amazing gig. The second hour was very special. I'll be looking out for another ticket for tomorrow.

    Got one for €30 in the end. Actually got 2 tickets for that, but couldn't use the second one. It was really last minute. But that was through a lot of messages and perseverance. There are lot more tickets available on adverts for tomorrow so will be easier to get one.

    He has a song Bloodstream, which is brilliant live.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,057 ✭✭✭ Zardoz

    Thats the problem with all the restrictions Sheeran places on tickets.

    They are nigh on impossible to sell or give to people so loads go to waste.

    He also release lots close to the event, you should never buy a ticket for him in advance.

    His stage looked decent enough , he spent a few bob on a decent setup, the stage he had for the last tour was diabolical.

    Question for anyone there tonight or familiar with Croker.

    Im bringing my mam and brother to Garth Brooks and will be in the Hogan Stand. Her mobility isn't the best. Not wheelchair bound or anything, but walking anything other than a short distance would be a challenge. What are my best options to get her as close to the entrance as possible on the way in? I can drive, I don't mind being stuck in traffic and missing the start by dropping them in, but I'm guessing streets will be closed.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,710 ✭✭✭ hynesie08

    You'll get her as far as drumcondra train station before closures kick in, from there it's an 8-10 minute walk to Hogan stand. It'll be getting the car afterwards where there'll be a delay. Depending on where you're coming from I'd park along the dart line and hop the train afterwards.

    Anyone at the gig last night know if they checked the lead booker tickets.I can't make it so I plan to give a screen shot of the ticket and my ID to my sister so that she can use the ticket. I'm hoping this will work?
