The Rolling Stones tipped for huge Croke Park gig this summer

RUMOURS ARE circulating in Ireland that legendary rockers The Rolling Stones could be set to play a huge Croke Park gig this summer.

Aiken Promotions revealed that they had booked a fourth night at the GAA stadium, with no act announced as of yet to fill that open billing.

The date being suggested is Thursday, May 17th.

Speculation has been growing for the last few months that The Rolling Stones would embark on a tour of the UK this summer. According to sources, if the UK tour gets the green light, then an Irish gig may be on the cards.

The band last played in Ireland over a decade ago, when they rocked a packed crowd at Slane Castle in 2007.


Last year, there was a lot of speculation that Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie would perform a ‘monster gig’ in Dublin.

Considering that gig never came to fruition, Irish fans are hoping they won’t be let down the second year in a row.

Last year, music magazine NME reported the band may be playing a series of UK gigs, including one at the famous Knebworth Festival.

Given that Glastonbury will not be taking place this year, it could be the perfect timing for a run of UK gigs.

Here’s hoping they fit in a night in Dublin too!

Fans have been taking to social media to express their excitement at the prospect of the greatest rock and roll band of all time coming to Croker.
