Special guests will also be performing at the gig, ahead of Posty's performance of his album Beerbongs & Bentleys.

The Texas native has charted nine songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100, gaining the accolade for 'the most songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100.'

In Ireland, the album entered the Irish Album Charts at #1, with one of the biggest chart debuts’ of 2018 and has since been certified double platinum. Casual. 

Tickets will be on sale from €75.75 this Friday, the 15th February at 9am. 



Additional security measures have been put in place ahead of Justin Bieber's sold-out performance at the RDS on Thursday June 21.

The Canadian singer will bring his Pupose World Tour to Dublin tomorrow and concert organisers have asked fans to arrive when the gates open at 5:00pm as they will be subject to individual “pat downs and metal detector checks for their safety and comfort”.

As the RDS is located in a residential area, no queuing is allowed outside the venue prior to gates opening. Early arrivals will be tuned away and asked to return at a later stage.

Due to heightened security at event venues throughout Europe, a number of extra measures will be enforced to ensure the safety and confidence of all attendees:

  • Be aware of bogus ticket sellers.

  •  No backpacks, large bags or any large objects.

  •  Only bags of A4 size (210x297mm) will be admitted after searching.

  • You will be subject to a “pat down” and a “wand” metal detector check.

  • Check ticket for correct approach route before leaving home.

  • You will be asked to show your tickets before joining queues.

  • Patrons are advised to keep their ticket in a safe place on their approach to the venue.

  •  The following items will not be permitted: alcohol, banners or flags larger than A4, cameras with more than 1” lens, fireworks, flashlights, food, garden furniture or seats, glass or cans, glowsticks, inflatable balls or   balloons, laser pointers, selfie sticks, shooting sticks, studs & spikes, umbrellas, video cameras & audio devices & weapons.

Concert organisers are advising patrons attending the gig to use public transport as parking at the RDS is limited.

However, if you are planning on taking the car, An Garda Síochána have devised a traffic management plan. For full details please check www.garda.ie.

For those of you attending the concert with children, there will be TAG-A-KID safety wristbands available at all the customer care points both outside and inside the venue.

Doors – 5pm, John Gibbons – 5.45pm, Halsey – 7pm, Justin Bieber – 8.15PM – 10.15PM.


Double Act, The Suitcase Kid, The Story of Tracy Beaker, Vicky Angel… If you're getting all the nostalgic feels just hearing those words then we have some great news for you.

As one of the most successful children's authors of the last two decades, Dame Jacqueline Wilson has penned countless bestsellers, but for the most part she shies away from the public eye.

If you're a fan of her work though, get yourself to the RDS on May 5 at 6.30pm, where Jacqueline will be speaking as part of Dublin's International Literature Festival.

According the the event organisers, the famed author will be chatting about "some of her most popular characters, including Tracy Beaker and Hetty Feather, and her brand new book, Rent-a-Bridesmaid."

Tickets start at a (frankly bargainous) €5 for kids and €7 for adults and are on sale now.
