The Gorillaz are making their return to Ireland for the first time in 7 years. 

Tickets for the gig go on sale Thursday 9th November at 9am from and Ticketmaster outlets. 

To ensure that you get a pair, check out this guide.. 

  • Team Up. Grab people that are also planning on going and work together.

  • Sign into Ticketmaster. If you don't have an account, get set up NOW. You will not have time later in the morning!

  • Have your details ready. If you're lucky enough to get through to input your details you don't want to make ANY mistakes. Time is of the essence!

  • Before 9am, refresh, refresh, refresh. Anytime from 8.55AM onwards, have the relevant page open on your desktop and just keep hitting that refresh button. You're going to need patience in bucket loads. Don't give up.

  • Get the 'captcha' code right. You have two minutes to type this in. Do not make a typo.

  • Use the Ticketmaster App. You can save your card details which means you save time typing numbers in. Win. All you'll need is the three digits at the back, and your payment is good to go. 
  • Credit card at the ready. If your details are saved on your Ticketmaster account, you're SORTED. If not, have the card ready. It may seem like an obvious thing to say, but MAKE SURE you have enough money in your account. If you don't, call in that favour from your Mom NOW!

  • Know your verified by Visa/Mastercard password. Know it inside out and back to front and never forget it. This step catches people out all the time and you could get kicked out of the queue if you don't remember it!

  • Remain calm. It's a stressful situation but panicking could cause you to hit a wrong button/refresh at the wrong moment/ throw your laptop out the window.

  • Don't refresh page once in. While you might think the page isn’t working, it is. You will be placed in a queue and will get access to tickets in a fair manner as quickly as possible. Just follow the instructions on screen. Refreshing a page will lose you your place in the queue.
