Ever seen this gig series was given the moniker Summer Nights at the RHK we couldn't escape the notion that the weather would decide to play the cruellest of jokes on us do a pretty realistic impression of November and unfortunately, we were right. But hey, we're not going to let a little rain dampen our spirits when we have a succession of great music on show in our capital are we?
The Summer Nights at the RHK gigs kicked off yesterday evening when Paul Weller played a blistering set (photographs are here for your perusal) and continues tonight with a massively-anticipated show from Elbow. It's Jack White's turn on Thursday before The Coronas on Friday and Biffy Clyro on Saturday. But what else might you need to know? Read on, dear friends...
One glance out the window makes depressing viewing for any Elbow fans but there's a good chance things will clear up tomorrow for Jack White. The Coronas, though, might well be playing in a torrential rainshower from what we can tell on www.met.ie. The good news is that Saturday's Biffy Clyro gig looks like being bone-dry. As always though, you never really know with the weather forecasts...
HOW TO GET THERE
Firstly, there's no public parking on site so don't bring your car unless you have a plan on where to park it already. Pedestrian access is from the EAST GATE on Military Road. Otherwise you can take the Luas to Hueston and it's a short jaunt from there. A series of different bus routes will lead you to Hueston too, so check www.dublinbus.ie for more information on that.
WHAT TIME IS EVERONE ON STAGE?
For tonight's gig Mick Flannery will be on stage at 7.15pm with Elbow following at 8.45pm. Check back to entertainment.ie/music for the stage times to the other Summer Nights shows.
CAN I BUY TICKETS THERE?
There is a TicketMaster van on site but we can't vouch for their ticket sales as of this moment. But hey, it's probably worth a punt.
CAN I BRING BOOZE?
Notatall. You'll be searched on the way in, so don't bring anything silly.
Nope, enjoy the gigs!
