Dublin readies for Beyoncé gig at Croker

Dublin readies for Beyoncé gig at Croker

Beyoncé will bring her Formation World Tour to Croke Park this evening to entertain a 75,000 strong crowd.

The last time the pop superstar came to Dublin was two years ago when she brought her Mrs Carter Show to the 3Arena.

Her new tour has already received rave reviews in the UK and tickets for tonight's show are completely sold out.

Eamon Fox from MCD is advising people to get there in time so they do not miss a thing.

“The doors will not open until 5.30pm, there is plenty of time between 5.30pm and 7.30pm when the support act comes on to get everybody in safely and securely,” said Fox.

“We would like you to come not waiting for the last minute. Prepare in time because there is traffic cordons in place from early on, there is a bit of a walk for everybody.

“So it will take you 30/40 minutes to get up here on top of what you normally do.”
