2010-11-27, RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin, Ireland
Just saw this today and thought I would get the thread going. I am trying to remember if "Simmonscourt" means indoor or outdoor... but I am presuming from the time of year that it will be indoor. Its an OK arena - WAY bigger than Tripod where they played last time. Just wish they had played there again, I suppose they are going for the big audiences this time!

Anyone going too?

I'll be there. With a gang. I notice Jim Carroll on the Irish Times music blog described Simmonscourt as the second worst venue in Dublin, with the Academy 2 being worst.

I know its a makeshift dump of a venue.. wonder why they chose to play there.. you can find canyons with better sound than Simmonscourt...

...my number one worst would be the concrete box that is the National Stadium (Boxing) - what a sad excuse for a music venue

Tickets for this went on sale today for anyone interested. I've got mine.

Bad news is it was €39.95 + €4.95 Ticketmaster "service" charge...

Hey Dunwho,

Just read your post on UW at Electric Picnic - really enjoyed it! I was in the same boat - bought tickets the minute I saw UW were playing. There was a real buzz in the tent that night, a good mix of hardcore fans and happy festival peeps. I can still remember getting shivers when they kicked off with Spoonman and it just got better and better from there on in. Pure euphoria!

Let's hope we get something remotely close at the RDS.....

Yea such an epic experience really.. I am hoping they can get some good sound out at the RDS.. just hope the crowd are in the same high spirits as they were at EP!

Going to pick a pub to meet some mates in before the gig - I'll post it up here and hopefully some of you can come along too.
