They'll play Croke Park in May

The wait is over for Rolling Stones fans, after tickets went on sale at 9.00am this morning.

The band's bringing their 'No Filter' tour to Dublin's Croke Park on May 17th.

It was confirmed earlier this week that a licence had been granted to hold a controversial fourth concert this year at the venue.

These fans at Ticketmaster in St Stephen's Green were happy to queue overnight.

"We're here since since 6 o'clock, was it?" one man said.

Another said: "Still (have) a better chance if you queue up, instead of online - it's kind of a lottery oneline, I think it crashes a lot.

"I can't wait for this. I've never had a chance to go and see them before, so this is the one time I get to see them, and I'm all over it."

Another man added: "About 6.30 - well I can't do online, I don't know how to do online.

"I've seen them before three times so going to be the fourth - going to probably be the last time, is it?

"Jagger's getting on a bit, isn't he?"
