I heard that too- the showgrounds were CPO'd as part of the Docklands development I think so the marquee would have to move on.

Yup

and Aiken would have a much larger window of opportunity to put more of their big names here all year round (maybe MCD would finally start booking big gigs in Cork again too)




Cork needs it

It's amazing that Killarney has a much bigger venue even more amazing that Millstreet has

With this kind of capacity big names could be attracted here

The problem for venues such as the Opera House and the Savoy, is that with these kinda capacities it really only leaves acts on their way up or on their way down (bar loads of of notable exceptions)

and the City hall is a disaster to run

as an economic crutch it would be positive, it would create a few hundred jobs short term and maybe 100/200 or so once it's finished. that's all good

but Vicar St sized would be way better than 02 sized

it should be a condition of the planning that there's 10-20 affordable band/theatre rehearsal rooms built as part of the overall complex too, that way local bands might develop as a consequence.

Live Nation/Aikens/MCD, etc don't give a flying fuck about cork in the long term (i can see all the profits being repatriated to dublin and/or wherever live nation are based) so it's up to the council to build in conditions that might see some cork bands benefit in some small way.

The tiny amount of cork acts who've gotten support slots at the marquee is an indication of how little these organisations care about what happens down here.

what?

sure it'd be handy for Cork to have a second runway, so let's put that in too

Developers Howard Holdings have to the best of my knowledge - planning permission already in place for such a venue, and Live Nation have been a part of that, since it was first mooted around 3 to 4 years ago. The article quoted seems to indicate there are two projects in the pipeline.

The most likely scenario is that we will get one multipurpose venue,for gigs, exhibitions, conference centre etc.

The GAA do their own thing well, but when it comes to concerts, thats another story. In any event, the current Pairc Ui Choimh Stadium is not suitable for concerts, it has too high a proportion of standing terraces, it won't be used for concerts ever again in it's current setup. The under utilisation of the venue in the last 15 years just amazes me, when compared to say Kilarney's Fitzgeralds stadium. The reason for this has, to be at GAA local level.
