Sometime this week, Arcade Fire (or rather their agent because it is a band’s well paid Mister Ten Percent who says yes or no to this kind of thing) will decide which Dublin show they will play this autumn.

There are three proposals on the table for this October outing:

(1) A gig in the RDS Simmonscourt

(2) A show at the Some Days Never End festival to be held by POD Concerts in a tent in the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (subject to planning permission, licenses and stuff).

(3) A gig in the tent to be pitched by MCD Concerts near the Visitors Centre in the Phoenix Park (subject to planning permission, appeals and all that jazz)

On The Record has heard that the money on offer for this shindig is “huge”, “massive”, “more than Beverley Cooper Flynn will earn in the lifetime of this Dail”, “enough to buy your gaff and the gaff next door” and “listen, it’s big”.

Stay tuned, fight fans
