We’ve been counting down the days and Queen Bey will finally land in Dublin this weekend!
The Lemonade singer will play to a crowd of over 75,000 at Croke Park on Saturday night and a spokesperson for MCD today warned her legion of fans that some additional restrictions will be in place on the night.
According to the Irish Independent, Beyoncé has specified on her tour rider that no iPads will be allowed into the stadium during the concert and those attending have been advised to leave them at home.
“There’s no umbrellas, no big cameras, there’s a whole list of stuff but the key one that wouldn’t be normal and it’s on the public information sheet is that there’s no iPads. Rihanna recently had the same thing, it must be an American thing,” said MCD event organiser Eamon Fox.
“We don’t want anyone coming up and losing an iPad because you won’t be allowed in and there will be no place to put it.”
Mr Fox clarified that the ban was to ensure that nobody’s view was obstructed by people filming the concert and promised a great show for the singer’s fans.
“With some of the older acts, you come to see the concert. You come to see the singer. This is a show. The singer is a major part of it but added to that, there’s a massive spectacle that befits the size of the space here. Croke Park is a massive arena to fill, even for an artist like her and she has the production to fill it.”
“It’s a jaw-dropping production and stage show and one of the biggest that’s ever been in Croke Park so the amount of space that it takes up has limited the capacity.”
Beyoncé has been receiving rave reviews for the opening shows of the Formation tour so anyone with a ticket for this weekend’s gig is in for a treat!
