Bob Dylan and Neil Young are scheduled to Play in Kilkenny on 14th July at Nowlan Park. Tickets will be priced from €76, and go on sale on Monday 17th December 2018 at 9am.
Promoter Peter Aiken said that he was expecting people to travel from all over the world for this unique performance.
It is likely that tickets will be snapped up almost immediately so anyone interested in going should be on the alert at the time of sale.
Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster
(Ticket limit of 9 Per Person, per transaction, per household, per credit card. Bookings over the limit will be cancelled.)
Dylan and Young are two of the great survivors from the 60’s and 70’s and still command a huge loyal following ranging from ancient hippies to the more youthful current crop of hipsters.
Dylan has had a long and illustrious career from the folk and protest ballads of the 1960s through his ‘electric phase right up to the present times. His songs have been recorded by numerous other artists and in 2016, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He rarely gives interviews and it was doubtful whether he would turn up for the Nobel prize ceremony.
This is a unique opportunity to see one of the legends of popular music of the last 50 years.
Neil Young is a Canadian rock and folk musician with a very recognizable voice and poetic lyrics whose works include ‘Heart of Gold’, ‘Harvest Moon’ ‘Four Strong Winds’, ‘Out on The Weekend’, ‘Teach your Children’, ‘The Needle and The Damage Done’ and lots more. He has survived many personal issues, has sold millions of albums and continues to rock the crowds and has won three Grammy awards.
Nowlan Park Kilkenny is usually the venue for hurling matches. The capacity for matches is 27,800 but it is not known at this stage if the capacity is less for concerts.
Because Dylan and Young are only playing only one other venue (Hyde Park, London), the competition for tickets is expected to be fierce and fans who are not ready to purchase on release are likely to be disappointed.
Because there are likely to be a lot of fans travelling from all around Ireland and from abroad accommodation is also likely to be scarce in the area.
Already many hotels in the area are fully booked for that day.
