Tickets There was a bit late to outline the full Molten Battle of the Bands this year, but we’re not too late to get you in on the action for… Heat 7 (yeah, it’s silly big and complicated). Anyway €5 will get you a handy chance to catch Psykosis, Killface, Rex Shachath and Aggro-Culture battle it out for a chance to progress to the final round with an overall goal of playing this year’s Bloodstock where they’ll rub shoulders with the likes of Megadeth, Emperor, Amon Amarth and many more.
For those not to au fait with the local scene then this is your cheap chance to get down to Fibber MaGee’s and support your own. Believe me, it’s not a chore. Some of these guys can share a stage with the best of them and the others are getting there. So break with a fiver, come to Fibbers and enjoy.

Amon Amarth Dublin and Belfast Shows Announced

Posted in Gig Listing, Music with tags , , , , , , , on February 7, 2014 by Tickets There

AmonAmarth-DeceiverOfTheGodsViking metal returns to Dublin this summer as the epic Amon Amarth are returning to the Limelight and Academy as part of their Deceiver of the Gods tour. Now I’ve never seen these guys live and I’ve kicked myself every time I’ve passed on the chance to go. Expect Tickets There making an appearance in Dublin at least.

The shows take place in August 12th (Belfast) and 13th (Dublin) and tickets go on sale today from Ticketmaster priced £27.5 and €30 respectively. Actually respectively nothing – Vikings! Never thought Ireland would be so welcome to repeated returns by these horned lunatics!

Have you seen them live? Tell me your opinion….

DUBLIN METAL EVENTS ANNOUNCEMENT COMING TOMORROW

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Music with tags , , , , on June 14, 2013 by Tickets There

DMEIt’s one of those nights again. The great purveyors of all things metal (and oddly enough – Big Country) in Dublin have an announcement coming and the ritual of ‘can you guess what it is yet?’ has started. I always love these waits because you’re pretty much 100% guaranteed you won’t be disappointed. Although you almost always won’t get what you guess, at least you know it won’t be One Direction.

MCD, Aiken, POD and others all do similar things, albeit a little less often, and it’s never the same. When they say ‘Big rock announcement coming tomorrow!’; you can almost lay money out that it’s The Kings of Leon or The Red Hot Chilli Peppers (with Bon Jovi quickly moving up that list’. When a massive festival is being announced it’s going to contain the exact same ‘adult contemporary’ snooze fest or musically devoid dance / pop (Electric Picnic & Oxegen 2013). I’m not slagging off those companies (MCD – 2 of the best Slayer gigs I’ve ever seen and almost every arena gig I’ve ever been to, Aiken – you give me The Boss almost annually and POD – Just for Crawdaddy alone where Jape, Reckless Love, Wired Desire and many more have been some of the best shows I’ve ever been to); but large companies like them have to supply to the masses and despite the leather jackets and studs back on Grafton street – metal is not ‘so hot right now’.

So thank you D.M.E. I don’t care if tomorrow’s announcement is not Motorhead, Cannibal Corpse or Amon Amarth. Just so long as it’s not Kings of Leon or The Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Wacken Metal Battle Ireland – Semi-Final 1 This Saturday

Posted in Gig Review, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2012 by Tickets There

Wacken Open Air 2012 may be six months away, but the excitement has begun. With tickets sold out and a line-up that boasts Amon Amarth, Saxon, Ministry, Machine Head, Scorpions, Testament, Cradle of Filth, Dark Funeral plus many, many more; W.O.A. 2012 promises to be the must see metal event of the summer!

In true metal spirit, Wacken have been running a battle of the bands since 2004 that takes place in over 30 countries with an all-out final at the festival itself. The top prize includes 1, a gig at Wacken (the final – duh), a yearlong recording contract with Nuclear Blast Records (Anthrax, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, EXODUS, Hammerfall, Sepultura, Nile, Testament, VADER – frickin’ endless list of legends) and assorted endorsements from the festivals sponsors. Not too shabby eh?

On Saturday night, Crunch Metal promotions presents the first of two semi-finals in the Irish heat which take place at Dublin’s The Pint, and will see six native acts launch bloody war upon each other for a chance to claim the coveted prize. Beltbuckle Overdrive (Dublin), Clurichaun (Tipperary), Exzeltic (Dublin), Red Six (Belfast), Spittin’ Bones (Kildare) and Warpath (Dublin) are all in with a chance of reaching the finals which will be held again at The Pint on April 21st but only three will qualify on the night!

Tickets are only €5 on the door and you can bet your nut this will be a night worth going to see. These guys have proven their way around the country to get through the early stages and quarter finals so you’re going to see some full on metal this weekend. Check out the event’s Official Facebook Page for more detials.

Dublin Metal Events: Upcoming 2012 Shows

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 9, 2012 by Tickets There

Dublin Metal Events have been busy as hell this year with 13 shows book between now and April, and they ain’t finish yet. The savagely cruel head honcho ‘H’ has promised a pretty tasty announcement for tomorrow after an earlier promise led to the announcement that W.A.S.P. will be returning to Dublin as part of their 30th anniversary tour.

Before that, there’s several other acts that will please all the hairy  leather ‘n’ denim brigade out there.  Few notes added to the ones Tickets There recommends if you’re looking to try something new. All dates available on the D.M.E. Events Page on Facebook.

Alestorm – 12/02/12 – The Pint
Krisiun + Malevolent Creation + Vital Remains – 14/02/12 – The Pint
The Devil’s Blood – 18/02/12 – The Pint
Alcest – 19/02/11 – The Pint

Fleshgod Apocalypse – 09/03/12 – The Pint
Stand Up And Shout – A Ronnie James Dio Tribute – 10/03/12 – Button Factory

  • Tribute night to the late great Ronnie James \,,/DIO\,,/. Seattle’s premier DIO tribute band will come and do their best at reminding you why we all miss the little fella so much. The disappointment from Heaven & Hell’s Iron Maiden support still runs deep; maybe this will go a little towards reconciliation. RIPDIO

Amon Amarth – 15/03/12 – Vicar St

  • Perhaps the only time it is ok for Vikings to return to Ireland. Amon Amarth will be bringing their Swedish rage to Vicar Street with DME promising us their full stage show is coming along for the rise. Heyyy hoooo – Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding!

Suffocation – 16/03/12 – The Pint

 Exhumed – 21/03/12 – The Pint

  • You take a little Death metal, a sprinkling of hardcore, some more death metal and the beatings of a thousand soldiers and you’ve got Exhumed. Now, despite some fans objections to the band becoming a lot more radio friendly and being play listed on a lot of morning and drive time shows, Tickets There thinks these guys do still credit their roots. Just because Ray Darcy likes them doesn’t mean you don’t have to!…..Tickets There will not be attending this show in case Matt Harvey tears TT’s head off.

April – Dec 2012


Obscura – 02/04/11 – The Pint
Absu + Impiety – 11/04/12 – The Pint
Orange Goblin – 20/04/12 – The Pint

  • You’ve got to ask yourself, ‘what else would ya be doing?’ Organge Goblin in town and you’re sitting at home with a tin, jacking off to Cristina Scabbia? Dude, get out of the house more and rock out to Rage of Angels, Blue Snow and  The Ballad of Solomon Eagle!!

Mael Mordha & Darkest Era – 27/04/12 – The Pint
W.A.S.P. – 25/09/12 – Vicar St

  • Tickets There we stupid enough to wait until 2010 to really get into the W.A.S.P. buzz but their show at The Academy was enough to seal us in as life time fans. The news that they’re coming back deserves a little post all of it’s own…..which it has….right …. HERE

Gig’s happening in the Academy and if the crowd at Exodus last week is anything to go by, then recession or no recession: this show will be packed.
