The Phoenix Park deer will have company this autumn. MCD Concerts are planning to hold eight outdoor concerts in the largest enclosed city park in Europe – or Dublin anyway. On the Record assumes a large tent will be involved or your ticket will have to come with gloves and scarf attached.

While there has been much chatter about who might be playing (with Arcade Fire garnering the most online punts), the park in winter is not the only exotic venue choice this year.

Take veteran British heavy metallers Diamond Head’s forthcoming Irish tour. While there are a few coventional venues on the schedule, the band, who influenced Metallica and Megadeth, will also play in the Round Room in Dublin’s Mansion House, headline a show at the natural ampitheatre at Ballykeeffe Wood and Nature Reserve in Co Kilkenny and perform at St John’s Castle in Limerick.
