Rumours about a Tom Waits show in Ireland this year have been reaching fever pitch in the last week or two, as all three main players in the Irish live music business – MCD, Aiken Promotions and POD Concerts – have made their pitch to Tom’s Mister Fourteen And A Quarter Per Cent.

Various venues for Waits’s first Irish show since he played Dublin’s Olympia in November 1987 have been mooted, including Malahide Castle, the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham, Donnybrook Stadium, the RDS and the Phoenix Park.

There has also been speculative chatter about shows in the National Concert Hall, The Academy and Vicar Street where you would have to sell your first-born at the door to get in.

Our guess? And please note this is a guess so no questions about ticket prices or when tickets are going on sale or anything like that. Three nights in a marquee to be pitched in the Phoenix Park in early August.
