It’s still early in the year and already it’s looking staggering for artists touring the country. Whether they are playing in arenas or theatres, it’s clear there’s an artist for everyone visiting in the coming year.
While it would be impossible to list off every artist who’ll be visiting as tours are always being announced, these are some of the biggest names confirmed to be visiting in 2024.
Starting off big, Taylor Swift will be bringing her beloved Eras tour to the Aviva stadium. The 34-year-old, while always having successful shows, has broken several records with her most recent “Eras” tour. It’s no surprise that tickets have already sold out despite her booking the stadium for three back-to-back shows. If you’re still looking for tickets, there’s still hope because she won’t be playing until June. The bad news is resellers will more than likely sell tickets for hundreds of euros.
Another big name coming to the country is Coldplay who will be bringing their Music of the Spheres tour to Croke Park for four nights from August 29 to September 2. Tickets are still available, the most expensive on Ticketmaster being up to €980. However most of the cheaper ones have sold out, and many of the tickets left are for VIP experiences or are being resold for higher prices than they originally were.
P!nk will also be making an appearance this year at the Aviva Stadium. The performer, notorious for flying around above fans at her concert will be joined by Rag’n’Bone Man and Gayle. She’ll be performing on June 20 and 21.
Niall Horan will be playing in Ireland multiple times this year for his The Show tour. He’ll be playing in the SSE Arena, Belfast for two nights and moving to Dublin for three nights at the 3Arena. Tickets are sold out for the Belfast show, but there’s still a small few left available for Dublin.
Olivia Roderigo will be giving Dublin a visit too while touring her new album “Guts” for two shows on April 30 and May 1 at the 3Arena. She previously came to Ireland for her first ever tour and played in Dublin and Cork. This time however, she’s moved to a bigger venue and can expect an even bigger crowd.
Troye Sivan will be touring his new album “Something to Give Each Other” over the Summer and bringing the experience to 3Arena on June 25. Despite dropping several singles and an EP, this is his first album since 2018, so its expected tickets will sell out quickly.
Two completely opposite artists are also playing 3Arena back-to-back with each other, with Mitski on May 4 and Tenacious D on May 5. Tenacious D still have several tickets available, and while Mitski is sold out resellers can be expected to advertise their tickets closer to the time.
If you missed him in December, the beloved Irish singer Hozier will also perform in Ireland this year at Marlay Park. He’s touring his new album “Unreal, Unearth”, his first album since 2019. Tickets are as low as €50, so now is your chance to get them.
Noah Kahan will also be making his return to Ireland in February. Considering he has a number one hit right now with Stick Season and the number one album on the Irish charts, it’s no surprise his show has completely sold out.
Several artists will also be playing in a smaller venue in Dublin called the 3Olympia Theatre, which has a capacity of 1,240 people. These types of concerts can sometimes be the best kind for artists interacting with fans and even for fans to be closer to the stage and get a better view. To name a few artists who’ll be performing here, PinkPantheress will be making an appearance at the theatre in February, Reneé Rapp in March and Ethel Cain in June.
Finally, while these artists aren’t confirmed to be coming to Ireland there’s a strong chance they might be. Drake and J Cole are currently on tour in the US, so there’s always a chance they could announce a European tour. Nicki Minaj will also be on tour, and while there are no Irish dates listed, she could potentially add extra dates to visit her Irish fans. Lastly, while it’s not confirmed she will even go on tour, with her new album dropping this year the demand for an Ariana Grande tour is higher than ever before, so it would be no surprise for her to announce one after her album drops.
It’s only early in the year and already the future is looking bright for Irish music fans.
