Who runs Croker this weekend? What you need to know about the Beyoncé gig
Published 08/07/2016 | 17:18
Croker is being taken over this weekend by thousands of Beyoncé fans.
The road to Croke Park is a sacred tradition for this country. Early starts and motorways, stop-overs and hang sangwiches, pints and chat, umbrellas and the flask of tea… there’s nothing quite like match day.
However, for the thousands of travelling fans who will descend on Croke Park this weekend for the Beyoncé concert, it’s a different kind of match day. Cumann na Bey is a glamorous crowd, who arrive in Formation, ***Flawless and ready to be fabulous. The ladies will don their dancing shoes, defying the elements and wearing exactly what they want, unhindered by rain or wind.
The show will be spectacular, with Beyoncé expected to perform 30-32 songs during a two-hour-long stint, running into extra time. Her prowess on stage is second-to-none, and the proportions of the show should be phenomenal considering 100 monster trucks have been pouring in during the week for the show. We’ve agreed that the very fact her name needs a fada means she is some part Irish and therefore destined to rule Croke Park, if only just for the weekend.
What do you need to know about the gig?
Every strong woman knows to be prepared for all eventualities, so to help you with that, we've gathered the information you need to know:
