Lets throw a few aul’ names into the hat, shall we? I mean, is there anything else to do on a miserable rainy Tuesday morning?

Oasis! Yes, Oasis. Playing a big outdoors show somewhere outside Dublin next summer, according to Noel Gallagher in the interview he did with Big Richie McCormack which ran on Phantom FM over the weekend. Some readers are thinking Slane, but we reckon it will be more like Malahide Castle (that’s outside Dublin, right?). Any of our many readers in Park Road, Dun Laoghaire who wish to speak now rather than hold their tongues forever can use the comments below. Anyone who wants to tell us how amazing the new Oasis album is should also have a note from their doctor.

Depeche Mode! Yes, Depeche Mode. Playing the 02 in 2009. You read it here first, pal.

AC/DC! Yes, AC/DC. C’mon, it has to happen. New album “Black Ice” means a tour and a tour means an Irish date or two. We’re sure that one of the Big 3 promoters will flash an extremely large wad of cash at the group’s Mister 11 And Two Thirds for the rights to this one. Lets hope it’s Croke Park rather than Slane for this one. Actually, lets hope it’s anywhere other than that awful over-rated Co Meath field.

All other speculation of a non-financial market kind in the comments please.
