Arriving the morning of the 16th....The plan is to do the Guinness tour then the Jameson tour (or maybe the other way around). Jet lag never seems to affect me until I arrive back home.

If I can make one suggestion...the Jameson tour is only a museum not an actually functioning distillery. You still get the samples at the end but there’s a place called Teelings, which is the only distillery operating in Dublin city so a little more authentic than the Jameson tour.

And the whiskey is pretty good too!

Thanks for the tip!

The Rolling Stones put themselves on drinking ban until after Croke Park gig in Dublin

"And in preparation for the big night, members of the band won't be touching a drop of alcohol and there'll be no boozy backstage bar.

Dale Skjerseth, production director for the band’s tour said: "There will be no booze before the gig as this is what The Rolling Stones do."

I'd take Snow Patrol or Kaleo

Few irish acts that could play are Glen Hansard, Damien Dempsey, The Coronas, Imelda May, The styrpes, The Chieftens

I'd love the Pogues or Shane McGowan but healthwise prob not possible for Shane

was San Diego 2015 soundcheck thru an open window from my hotel room next door.
A chill ran under my skin up my arms and I was hanging out the window in bliss.

Have a BBQ Dubliners for Christ sake!!

The Who played Swansea in 1976 - the stadium was right next to the prison so they got a free show - the Who came back in in 2007 - Roger Daltrey hadn't forgotten.............

For anyone tempted by this, please be aware that accomodation prices of all types in Dublin are now ludicrously sky high this week, largely thanks to 3 Ed Sheeran Concerts taking place there the same week as the Stones' visit to the city.

Limited my ass; the €180 ones aren't selling, the €90 ones aren't selling so this is going to be a firesale, I suspect...

The promoter is taking a bath for sure. Those 3 Ed Sheeran shows in the same city the same week will not be helping. Even if they attract different types of audiences, there is huge pressure on accomodation in Dublin, inflating prices through the roof, which will deter foreign vistors so they will have to rely on the home market for this.

I notice that GC Tickets are available for 30-40% discount on the secondary sites (+ their rip off fees). GA holding steady and actually going for a bit over face (though still availabel from Ticketbarsteward. GA is too cheap and GC too expensive.

Those who do travel in from outside Ireland will do well to book accomodation out of town and travel in on showday.

Definitely, accommodation prices are getting ridiculous. I booked way before the show in Dublin was even confirmed, knowing the booking could be cancelled if the show feel through. Rooms for the hotel are still available, but have doubled the rates within a couple of weeks.

I did exactly the same. Dublin is a very expensive city full of tourist traps for the naive. With a population of half a million, 4 major music events the same week puts a huge strain on its tourist Accomodation, forcing prices up to cuckoo levels. Exactly the same thing happens in Edinburgh during the fringe festival and at New Year. I’m in a hostel for 20 quid a night, arriving very late the night before the show grinning smiley

Absolutely. They can stuff their rip off hotel prices.

In and out the same day and back home just after 2 am. That'll do me

LD's are available for over 24 hours now. I am wondering if nobody buys these or if they sell so many to fill up the stadium.

I think they've finally pushed the prices too far on this one, pure greed I'm afraid. It started with the O2 prices in 2007 when there was uproar, even Mick commenting on it (rather unhelpfully) during one of the shows, since when we simply accepted it and shelled out. Now they can't even shift Lucky Dips, ffs !

Well hang on, Lucky Dips are 'niche' in that if you picked 100 people off the street and told them to go online and find Stones tickets, they'll go straight to ticketmaster rather than to www.rollingstones.com/tickets and find the LDs, so it's not as if we're talking about a perfect market where the LDs are lingering on a shelf with everybody walking past. They're on a shelf but under the counter, y'know...

But for Dublin, you're right but it's part of a perfect storm. The city was oversubscribed with concert goers *before* this gig was announced (pushing up accomodation prices), then when it was announced, ticket sales were held up because of the license issue, and when the tickets did go on sale, the cost (for seats in any event) was *indeed* too high for the market.

i would guess the whole tour is somewhat over the public demand, as no-one thought they would add this extra in 2018. So many traveled to venues overseas last year, and have no will to spend another fortune on tix. Ireland is then the first to lose, with one of the largest venues and the least population... Hope it works out well, and luck to all Dippers smoking smiley
