    Don’t see them coming back here for another 3 years at least after this fiasco

    They did a great concert last year in St Anne's Park.

    Too soon I think to be returning, and too ambitious a venue unfortunately.

    I've been going to a lot of gigs for a lot of years and the closest I can remember to this was when Paul Weller did a 5 night anthology in the Olympia and they basically had to paper the weird jazz years night.

    I can see the same thing happening for Def leopard/motley crue in Marlay park.

    Agree on the Leppard / Crue thing .... I reckon there will be freebies everywhere for that

    Recently claims about Motley Crue playing to backing tapes won't help the cause either. Joke of a band

    Most of the upper section was curtained off the last time they played the 3Arena/02 in 2011 and I think it had been few years since they last played here by then. It was always going to be difficult to sell having played here last year.

    That 4 tickets for €20 seems to be closed now. If anyone hears of any similar deals going please post them in!

    Playing a gig around a Brucie weekend is a serious punt imo.

    Looking at the seating map of what's left is not actually as bad as I thought. Probably fill a few more as well.

    The place is hopping!

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,037 ✭✭✭Irish Aris

    Fantastic gig!!

    The whole thing with the free or discounted tickets worked because the place was full!!

    I'll venture a guess that it was too late for the promoter to do the smaller standing section (probably have already sold more standing tickets) and had to go with a full seated plan.

    Not that it mattered anyway as everyone was up on their feet the whole time!!

    I went along after getting the 4 for 20 deal, was a great gig. Seats were very high up but for a fiver you cant complain :-)

    Jake Shears was good fun too.

  • Registered Users Posts: 279 ✭✭Kilteragh

    Great gig and good to see it nearly full and bouncing for most of the night.

    Jake Shears was an excellent support act.

    I bought a ticket for this at full price as soon as they went on sale and got sat in the shittiest seat in the 3 arena (block g against the wall)

    do ticketmaster automatically fill up the **** seats for the early buyers?

    Great gig. Ten songs from the first two albums...I was always going to enjoy that. Highlights were Careless Memories, Lonely in your Nightmare and Last Chance on the Stairway. Great seats in the second 'tier' in front of the stage so we had a class view of the stage.

    The Future Past songs had little impact but that was to be expected.

    After two gigs in less than a year it could be a while before we see them again!

    Went along as a friend scored some freebies and I can never refuse a free gig... Turns out I know a lot more Duran Duran songs than I thought I did and enjoyed them a lot. Jake Spears was awful though imo, I never liked Scissor Sisters but his solo stuff is terribly bland by comparison.

    I bought three full price tickets and picked where I wanted to sit in block M last January. A great view and great access to the bar and facilities. A typical Irish Duran gig. Fab show. Some die hards (I'm one) Some 80s randomers on a night out, and freebie event junkies. Loved it! We all had fun anyway despite what we paid. The only time they played here to a hardcore crowd was in the Olympia in December 1999. Now they were two nights to remember! Thank you to all that complimented my T-Shirt last night!
