Midnight at the Olympia was the best thing in Dublin for years
. Saw many a great Irish band in their early days in that venue. Used to be the place to hit when all the other places closed for the night. As it was only opening. Good few rock bands from the 70's played there as well. Come back gigs. Small venue, but the place was always rocking.
Metallica (4 times, once on their Master of Puppets tour)
Panic at the Disco
Thirty Seconds to Mars
Atlas Genius (saw a private performance, got pics and autographs from the band)
The Damn Yankees
Kiss (took my ex wife lol)
Guns N Roses
Three Days Grace
Harry Connick Jr (took my ex-wife as a bday present)
I'm sure there've been more, all I can think of right now....
Looks like they're gearing up for another tour with their new album release. I can't wait to listen to it.
I would do anything to be able to go.
They've sold 170 million records, ffs. And Bono was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize several years ago, he has done so, so much for charity. I don't know how you can't love them, no matter what genre you listen to. I grew up listening to The Joshua Tree, it is forever burned into my brain, every lyric of every song.
