That is all I see as far as any type of confirmation...quasi or otherwise...not even a tweet on the Dublin City Council account:
https://twitter.com/DubCityCouncil?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr
%5Eauthor

and nothing yet on RS.com

Fingers crossed as most of that Sun article seems like cut/paste to me...

They got in trouble last week lifting quotes from an interview with Jennifer Lawrence as their own last week...the interview was on The Howard Stern Show the week before and they lifted exact quotes as if they interviewed her.

Either way...its 50/50, right? Easy enough to rewrite as a sudden change of plans, blah blah blah

Its evidently inside info they're sharing. I doubt they'd be sticking their necks out like that with an announcement being imminent. Giving details of ticket prices and onsale dates a few weeks ago is another thing entirely.

And they're also the first source to specifically say that the residents group's objections weren't upheld.  Very significant, I would say.

Its easy to dismiss tabloid sources but it depends on what the story is. Its not just celebrity whispers and tittle tattle all the time. They DO break a lot of stories due to having good inside info as well.

One wonders what dirt they may have on the Great Gazza to have him sing such high praise of said tabloid?!?

The Rolling Stones will definitely be rocking out at Croke Park this May after Dublin City Council granted Aiken Promotions its Outdoor Event Licence.

An application was made to the planning section last month in a bid to secure a fourth musical date at the northside stadium, given that the three concerts have already been booked.


In a release sent out this afternoon, Aiken confirmed that they have been green-lighted for the long-awaited gig in Croker on May 17, despite objections from some local residents.


Meanwhile, a representative of the Clonliffe and Croke Park area residents association said they were "deeply unhappy" at today's decision.

They held a public meeting last month where a number of locals voiced their concerns over what they fear will be the increased use of Croke Park.

"We're not happy that's the bottom line and we feel that we've been let down by Dublin City Council," said association chairperson Patrick Gates.

He said that the residents won't be just disrupted on the day of the concert itself, It's also the days leading up to the event where huge crews will arrive in to start setting up the sprawling stage.

Not only will the Stones open the second leg of their No Filter tour in Ireland, the Dublin stadium will also be the largest venue that Mick Jagger and his bandmates will perform in this summer.

It will start off in Ireland and then take in dates in UK, France, Germany, Czech Republic and Poland and tickets for their other concerts had already gone on sale.

Tickets for their only Irish gig will go on general released this Friday morning at 9am priced from €70.45.

However, a number of tickets will be released in a pre-sale event for die-hard fans on Thursday morning.

That's grand! My second Stones concert after 12 years.

I need help with the procedure: do I have to sign with Ticketmaster or any other service? Should I just wait this pre-sale link in my box this Wednesday (I'm on the list) and follow the instructions? I've never bought tickets online before. Thank you.

It would speed things up when purchasing tickets if you registered your details first with Ticketmaster, yes

www.ticketmaster.ie in this case.  They'll probably be available via axs.com as well

The pre-sale link will give you a password to use when you log in.

Note however that if youre intending to purchase Lucky Dip tickets, they'll be available on the public sale only.

Confirmed today that The Pope is scheduled to appear at Croke Park in August.

I wonder is it subject to license and pending objections from local residents groups?

It'd be bloody hilarious if we got to hear a Stones show - in Ireland of all places - featuring Sympathy for the Devil in May - and a Papal Mass got banned!

Hi lads. You experienced concert-goers: is the Gold section a nice spot to see them? I mean, can I actually SEE them without having to resort to the screens? I hope it is because that's where I'll be. Fuck yeah!

Gazza, I'd like to have a pre or post pint with you if you're around. Thanks for the help!

If youre paying that kind of money, I'd like to think you wouldnt need a screen.   But as you know, in stadiums there's always a bit of an extra gap between stage and audience

Hope to see you in Dublin. I'll be with Paranoid Android, it seems.

Gonna have to double down my friend!!
Hope to see you there!!

As the field is not on an incline, you will prolly be looking at the screens a lot for the finer moments...but you should have no problem seeing the stage...the real issue is not so much distance from the stage...its how deep the stage goes back...the screens really help for that I feel .

The field in that stadium is massive.  Far bigger and wider than in a football, rugby or NFL stadium.
