But local residents are objecting

The Rolling Stones have announced a gig in Croke Park after weeks of speculation.

They're due to play GAA headquarters on May 17th.

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 23rd.

However, the local residents’ association is planning to object to what will be the fourth concert held at the stadium this year.


There is an agreement with An Bord Pleanala that only three concerts take place in the one year. Promoters will now have to apply for a license for the extra gig.

The Croke Park Area Resident's Association is holding a meeting tonight to discuss the planned concert and to start the process of objecting to the event.

PRO of the association Colm Stephens describes concerts at Croke Park as 'like a nightclub with 80 thousand people on your doorstep.'

The Rolling Stone's No Filter tour which began last year has been extended to include the Dublin concert. They're also due to play gigs in London, Manchester, Southampton, Edinburgh and Birmingham.
