PRINCE NOW PLAYING CROKE PARK

ohhhhh funky ireland.....i can just hear it now....what about slane castle r croke park prince???
they would do nicely till the point is renovated.

www.thepointdublin.com

when completed in late 2008 it will boast a cinema plus a luxury 5 star hotel and a 2000 seater arena (which would b ideal 4 the afterhows) beside the 14,000 seater main arena.
the accoustics r the best n the world here at the point and when U compare it 2 the 02 n london it will rival it if not go further in terms of Xcelence.
im sure MCD promotions could persuade prince 2 do a "30 nites with prince @ the point" tour.
the ONLY crazy joint N the world where prince will play n 2009.
U heard it here first folx....wolfy is ur hookup.

the point is where he loves 2 jam n the emerald isle.
slainte,
WOLFY razz

confused Hi guys...Heard that too but me thinks someones getting thier wires crossed. This would be absolutely amazing if it was true but there's no mention anywhere that this will happen.
There are reports that Princess Ann is going to be at an Irish Rugby game in Croke Park soon enough, but this is the only reference...

What if half the things ever said...turned out to be a lie?

I hear ya. Maybe I am getting prematurely too excited! Would be brilliant though - as long as its not the last 2 weeks in May coz I am in Florida. I would be pretty p*ssed off if I missed Prince in Ireland!!!

Prince to play Croke Park gig?
Wednesday, February 20 2008, 15:36 GMT


By Alex Fletcher, Entertainment Reporter

Prince will play a gig at Dublin's Croke Park in June, say reports.

The 'Purple Rain' singer is reportedly being lined up to fill the final slot in a series of summer concerts at the Irish stadium.

Celine Dion, Westlife and Neil Diamond have already confirmed shows at the venue for later this year.

The venue's website currently has 'concert tbc' printed in its event diary on June 15. This date is expected be filled by the veteran US rocker.

Prince played 23 gigs at London's O2 arena last year to promote his Planet Earth album.

thumbs up!

June would be perfect! Yeah I know Croke Park is big - saw the Police there last Oct, but its not like he didnt do outdoor before here - RDS, Parc Ui Chaoimh.... I dont care what venue it is to be honest, I just want to see him again.

I agree with you Wolfie, he loves Ireland and his fans - no doubt!!!

I would love if this was true but in the 20 years I have followed Prince I have never read a rumour about a particular concert that was announced by Prince that turned out to be true.I actually think if the rumour gets out there Prince does not go forward with it ( crazy I know).

Not the first time we have been in this situation - Here are some examples Parade tour was scheduled to play 5 nights at the point in August 2006, SOTT same 5 nights in 2007, Lovesexy tour was 99% confirmed for June 30/31 1988 in RDS Dublin, I know someone who swears he had the job of destroying the already printed tickets, then it emerged the Nude tour would open in Dublin for 5 nights at the point in May 1990 but if did play to 80000 people in Cork that year.

The two times he was not expected he showed up for the live exp and 1nite alone tour. I hope it happens, he has tons of fans in Ireland and more top 10 records in Ireland (28 I kid you not) than elsewhere in the world....but talk is cheap...

they would do nicely till the point is renovated.

www.thepointdublin.com

when completed in late 2008 it will boast a cinema plus a luxury 5 star hotel and a 2000 seater arena (which would b ideal 4 the afterhows) beside the 14,000 seater main arena.
the accoustics r the best n the world here at the point and when U compare it 2 the 02 n london it will rival it if not go further in terms of Xcelence.
im sure MCD promotions could persuade prince 2 do a "30 nites with prince @ the point" tour.
the ONLY crazy joint N the world where prince will play n 2009.

Did you all know that percentage wise Prince has more Irish fans compared with any other country? so it is fitting that he come here again, also his last time here in 2002 or 03 , the one nite alone tour, he played only one nite to a 7 thousand crowd that sold out in 15 minutes. However the Croke park is huge with its 80 thousand seats alone & then field space, can Prince really fill it?

Sure he can fill it. If The Police who had about 5 hits back in the 80s can do so can Prince smile

well if it is confirmed by MCD then we can all have a great time n dublin.
its a great city n i hope everyone that comes 2 ireland will have great memories.
its a sweet deal 4 prince.....he would have 2 play 4 at least 3 hours n if he made a DVD of the gig it would b awesome.
imagine if he used the same stage at the 02 and did the gig n the round????

someone told me that stage was specially built 4 the 02 shows so he might build another one if he is doing a stadium tour of europe.
i have no doubt the show would sell out n no time.
