What time do the doors open at?

Doors open at 5pm with the show set to kick off at 6pm.

There is a strict no camping or early queueing rule. Gardaí will be paroling the area to make sure that there is no early queueing. So just there when the doors open!

When will Taylor be on stage?

Taylor plays for a whopping three and a half hours on her Eras Tour.

So she gets on stage at a fairly early 8pm.

Who will be supporting her?

She will be joined by American pop punk band, Paramore.

They will be on stage at 6pm and are set to play for about 45 minutes.

Are there tickets still available?

Oh definitely not. If you missed The Great War of 2023, then you may not be aware that tickets were the most coveted thing in the world.

But there may be presale tickets on Ticketmaster if you’re very lucky!

How can you get to the Aviva?

Organisers are advising concert-goers to account an extra two hours into their journey time to and from the Aviva.

As traffic and parking delays are inevitable you are strongly encouraged to walk, bike, use public transportation or carpool.

If you do plan on driving, you will have to use carparks in the city centre as there is no public parking at the Aviva.

However, there are plenty of public transport options

  • By Bus: Dublin Bus Routes 4, 7/a, 39a, 46a, 145 and 155 will all have a full service. These routes are the closest to venue. Full details here.
  • By DART: Extra DART services will operate before and after the concert. After the concert Grand Canal Dock DART station will be closed, passengers travelling home should board at Lansdowne Road DART station. Full details here.
  • By Train: Full details here.

If you want to get a taxi suggested taxi drop-off locations are the junction of Pembroke Road/Northumberland Road or the Junction of Tritonville Road and Hebert Road.

What does the road colour mean?

Your ticket has a road colour on it explaining what entrance you should use.

Blue ticket entry (West Stand Upper Levels) – Enter via podium entrance off Shelbourne Road.

Orange ticket entry (West Stand Lower Tier) – Enter via Lansdowne Lane.

Green ticket entry (South stand & general) – admission pitch standing enters via Lansdowne road
