Ed Sheeran has had fans swooning in Cork, Galway and Belfast over the last few days and now he’s cruising to the capital to do some more crooning to 150,000 fans.
Unfortunately, all three nights in Phoenix Park are sold out and Aiken have “strongly discourage” buying tickets from third-party sellers to avoid getting scammed.
It’s a safe bet that he’ll hop on stage in a Dubin GAA jersey tonight having worn Cork and Galway jerseys when he performed there.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of the gig tonight:
You need valid ID to match the name on your tickets. If you bought your tickets online you also need to present the card you bought them with.
It’s stunningly sunny at the moment but don’t be deceived, temperatures will have dropped to below 10 degrees by the time Ed hits the stage so bring some layers.
Leave your bags at home
You’ll be fast-tracked through security without one. Any bags less than A4 in size will be permitted. If you arrive with a bag bigger than that it won’t be permitted.
Don’t climb the trees
Whether to sneak in or get a better view, Aiken has warned against leaving ground level. A fan in Páirc Uí Caoimh broke her legs watching from a roof and another broke her neck attempting to take a shortcut.
Get public transport
There will be no parking available in the vicinity of Phoenix Par for the events. Heuston station is the nearest train station, the red line LUAS stop here is within walking distance of the event too. These Dublin Bus routes serve Phoenix Park: 25, 25a, 25b, 26, 37, 38, 38a, 38b, 39, 39a, 46a, 66, 66a, 66b, 67, 68/a, 69, 70, 145, 145. Traffic restrictions will be in place after the gig too so if you’re organising a pickup point make it far away.
Don’t queue as the park is surrounded by a residential area. Gates open at 5pm but the first performance doesn’t kick off until 5:45pm when Beoga takes to the stage. Jamie Lawson will be on at 6:30pm, followed by Anne Marie at 7:30pm and finally, the main man will make an appearance at 8:45pm.
Concert-goers have been asked to respect the local residents by not singing or being rowdy when leaving the park. The even more local residents, that reside within the confines of the park, need to be left alone too… Don’t feed the deer!
