As we, er, guessed earlier on, there is now a second date by The National in Dublin. They’ll play the Olympia on May 14 and 15. We reckon they’re good for a third date.

Joe Duffy vs 30 Seconds To Mars: ding, ding. Hillarious couple of minutes on the Liveline when Joe had a punter on the phone FUMING about the band playing just 30 minutes at their Dublin show at the weekend. “30 Second To Mars for 30 minutes for 30 euros” was how Joe put it. Wonder would he do a special on Radiohead or PJ Harvey. They also couldn’t get anyone at promoters MCD to take their call. Mmmmm. Memo to the lads and lasses in MCD reading On The Record on Dinny’s dime: take the call. Go on, take the call.

Per Ivor and Gigwise, some of you will be buying tickets to see Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds at Dublin Castle on May 3

More live news: expect announcements this week on who will be playing summer shows at Malahide Castle in Dublin and Live at the Marquee in Cork.
