Ed will play the Phoenix Park tonight, Friday and Saturday.
The day has finally arrived! The first of Ed Sheeran’s three concerts in Dublin’s Phoenix Park is happening tonight.
If you’re lucky enough to have tickets to one of the sold out shows, we’ve put together a guide of all the things you need to know before heading off and having a fab night.
Venue gates open at 5pm. No early queuing is permitted. The shows are in a residential area therefore Ticketmaster ask holders to respect the privacy of the residents and local communities.
They also advise that you plan your journey well in advance allowing plenty of time for travel as roads are expected to be busy, you don’t want to be late for Ed!
As they do with every gig, for our own safety Ticketmaster have strict guidelines for bringing a bag to the concerts.
Please do not bring a bag unless it is totally necessary. People without bags will be fast-tracked.
They add: “If you must bring a bag it needs to be smaller than A4 size. Bags under A4 will be subject to a search which will result in unnecessary queuing.
Ed has three opening acts for his Phoenix Park gigs – Irish trad band Beoga, who featured in his songs Galway Girl and Nancy Mulligan, Jamie Lawson, and Anne Marie. Here’s when you can expect to see them onstage.
6:30pm Jamie Lawson
7:30pm Anne Marie
8:45pm Ed Sheeran
To prevent ticket reselling at an extortionate price, Ticketmaster have put some very strict rules in place. Make sure you follow them and don’t get caught out!
According to a statement from Ticketmaster Cork, fans must bring photo ID and proof of the card used if tickets were bought online.
Persons who purchased their tickets in Ticketmaster outlets are just required to bring Photo ID in the lead booking name printed on their tickets to gain entry. No receipt of payment is required in this instance.
If the person who purchased the tickets can’t attend, someone with the same surname as on the tickets may use the tickets provided they show Photo ID and a photocopy of the credit card used for purchase. (CC details required for online purchases only).
Ticketmaster also warns fans of scams and false tickets.
“Please be aware of bogus ticket sellers, do not buy from any unofficial source or secondary sites as these tickers will not grant you access and we would hate for you to miss out.”
Now that you’re well informed get excited, we know it’ll be a fab night!
