Slipknot / KoRn tickets on sale now

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , on October 17, 2014 by Tickets There

slipknotDid your sixteen year old self leap for delight when this show was announced last week? Nu-metal or not, there is ridiculous levels of excitement for this tour. The return of Slipknot and a chance to see KoRn back on an arena stage where they belong.

Slipknot’s history is Ireland has been far rarer than KoRn’s making this an extra special show for fans. Many, like myself, will remember the disappointment of their last minute cancelation of their first Irish show way back in 2000 or 2001 after a ****ing parents group or some s**** had them banned. They made it up though when they finally made their debut appearance supporting Metallica in 2004, going on to be every bit as incredible as reports had hailed them to be. They even managed to win over the naysayers while they were at it. One final gig occurred in 2005 and it’s been silent since.

Now with a new album out (TODAY) and a new line-up, the Knot are coming back. No matter how much you (talking to the cynical older crowd here) thought you’d moved on and shrugged off that haircut, you’ll probably wish just a little bit you already had your tickets., it’s not too late my friends, it’s not too late.

it will be if you wait much longer of course so go but them. There was supposed to be a competition on Tickets There but my own honesty has made sure that’s not going to happen. if you expect Tickets There to do it for you, you’ll be waiting a long time.

Tickets available for Slipknot and KoRn’s January 14th show at the 3Arena are on sale now priced €59.50 from Ticketmaster.ie and outlets nation wide.

Dublin Metal Events: Upcoming 2011 / 2012 Shows

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2011 by Tickets There


The good folks over at D.M.E. (Dublin Metal Events) have an savage line-up of shows ready to suit the needs of every shot downing, leather wearing, long haired legend in the country. Whether you love rock, hard rock, glam rock, heavy metal, Celtic metal, black metal, death metal or sher, unadulterated gore infestation of the most ancient, alien-enslaving nature – DME got your back ya’ll.

Kicking us off is one of the foundation stones of Irish metal, Primordial. Celebrating two decades together, Primordial will be blowing the walls of the Academy this Saturday after an incredible year that’s seen them finally earn the respect they (and the Irish metal scene) deserve. Since it’s not TT’s cup of tea, we’re not going to bandwagon jump here – but it’s great to see an Irish act get some real recognition. It’s been twenty years, but incredibly enough it might just be the beginning.

Next big one on the TT Calendar (well actually, the first one on our own gig planner) – Norwegian black metal lovelies, 1349. Named after the year the Black Death gripped Norway, 1349 intend on re-igniting the flame of Lucifer in The Pint on October 15th in what will hopefully be a full on corpse-paint blood fest. Wonder how our Def Leppard love will go down with this crowd?

Second on our own planner (all dates listed below – no need to panic), Gorgoroth & Vader @ The Button Factory on November 12th. Now, TT doesn’t know a whole pile about Gotgoroth (aside from folks constantly saying they’re frickin’ amazing!) but we managed to catch Vader’s last Irish show in Whelan’s and that’s enough for us. Without a doubt Poland’s premier metal band and one you should do anything you can to see live.

The Quireboys introduce a little good old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll into the line-up when they play Whelan’s on November 27th. Sing along with their classics and you can enjoy Belfast’s Million $ Reload, who’ll be joining them on the night as support. Both bands get a double TT thumbs up which, as you all know, is the highest mark of respect in the world!

Bringing us towards the end of 2011 will be two almost back to back hair metal bonanza nights. First up, The excellent Reckless Love who’ll be hitting Whelan’s on December 2nd for a night of hairspray, spandex and some of the best rock n roll classics ever to emerge out of Finland (Hanoi who now?). Again anyone that was at their Crawdaddy show will agree that this gig promises to be something very special. After that we get some Swedish glam rock from Crashdiet who’ll also be abringing local lads Eazy Tyger along for support. Anyone that hasn’t seen them in a while would do…alright to check out their regular show in Gypsy Rose as there’s a new singer and new sound…well, newish. Both nights promise to make for a great end to 2011 with one final surprise up DME’s sleeve…..

Beasts of the night, enslavers of men and the all-round overlords of the Universe – GWAR will be ringing in the New Year in chaotic fashion when they arrive on stage in Dublin’s Button Factory on Januray 17th to show people how gore metal and stage theatrics should be done. GWAR have always been the pinnacle of on stage extremity with January’s show promising to be one of the highlights of the decade, let alone the year. More details still to be confirmed for this one but D.M.E. are hoping to have this sorted later in the week.

So to sum up, we’re not exactly stuck are we? All tickets are on sale now from Into The Void Records and Ticketmaster.ie (and outlets nationwide) for all events (except GWAR for the moment) and you’ve also got shows from Onslaught, Christ Agony, Evile and Hail of Bullets just in case none of the above appeal to you (although you should ask yourself ‘what sort of person isn’t infatuated by GWAR?’. We say bad people!!). Full list of gigs is available below, keep checking D.M.E.’s official website for more details.
