Live music promoters will be hoping that loads of people will wake up to find tickets under the tree on Christmas Day.

Today, tickets go on sale for Franz Ferdinand (Limerick’s Dolan’s on February 28th and Dublin’s Olympia on March 1st) and Pink (Dublin’s 02 on October 14th and Belfast’s Odyssey on October 17th).

Coldplay fans can start contributing to Apple Martin’s college fund from Monday when 40,000 tickets for the band’s Phoenix Park date on September 14th are released. We’re certain that capacity will grow in size if the gig sells fast.

Tomorrow, tickets go on sale for Bob Dylan’s second show at Dublin’s 02 on May 6th. It’s a long way from the days when His Bobness couldn’t pull a half-decent crowd for his Irish shows during the late 1980s and early 1990s.
