Bruno Mars will bring his 24K Magic World Tour to Dublin this Thursday in Marlay Park, reports Julia Stengle.
At the 2018 60th Annual Grammy Awards, Bruno Mars left the most decorated - winning all titles he was nominated for. Such awards include Album (24K Magic), Song (That's what I Like), Record (24K Magic), R&B Song (That's What I Like), R&B Album (24K Magic), and R&B Performance (That's What I Like) of the year.
Bruno Mars is a fan favourite in Ireland and according to Festival Republic's Director Merlin Benn, "Bruno's just perfect." With such a star coming to Dublin, Benn confessed Bruno's concert is "one of the nights of the year that [he] is looking forward to most." He also advised this concert is not to be missed as Mars "is a great booking for Marlay Park."
The support acts are Sister Sledge, best known for We are Family, and DNCE whose hit Cake by the Ocean went platinum.
The gates at Marlay Park will open at 5.30pm.
An Garda Síochána Superintendent Ian Lackey wants fans to allow plenty of time for travel and concert entry purposes. Early queueing is prohibited and fans who show up early will be turned away. To avoid longer queues, Lackey suggests not bringing a bag. Large bags will not be permitted, but any bag smaller than A4 is allowed.
An Garda Síochána requests attendees plan travel routes in advance and use either public transportation or private buses to get to the venue. The last Luas to Broombridge is at 00.25 and the last Luas to Sandyford is at 00.45. The Grange Road entrance is the only entrance pedestrians will be allowed to access.
The concert will take place rain or shine and if the recent warm weather continues, Superintendent Lackey needs all fans to be sun aware and wear sun cream.
Lackey is also concerned about dehydration - especially if fans are drinking alcohol. An Garda Síochána will implement a zero tolerance policy on all public transport and buses to Marlay Park. Those intoxicated at arrival will not be granted entry.
Updates related to concert safety, traffic, or other information will be available on An Garda Síochána's twitter and social media profiles.
