Beyonce's Croker tickets still up for sale after two months

Superstar Beyonce is having trouble filling Croker, with a range of tickets for her gig still available - two months after they first went on sale.

The pop star will return to the capital with a night in 82,000-seater Croke Park on July 9 as part of her Formation World Tour. Tickets went on sale in February with much anticipation following her sold-out tour in 2013.

However, the Herald Diary can reveal that fans of the pop queen are in luck with tickets still available in most categories for her standalone Dublin gig this summer.

Meanwhile, a package - which includes free food and drinks at a pre-party show and themed merchandise - are on sale for a cool €444 each.

The Queen of Pop will play the gig just over a week after Bruce Springsteen graces the stage.

Tickets for Springsteen's first gig on May 27 sold out in two hours and Aiken Promotions then confirmed a second date on May 29, which also sold out.

It had been expected that Beyonce's Croke Park show would sell out in the same way.  She played four nights at the O2 in March 2013, adding a fourth night to her Dublin leg after the first three shows sold out in 20 minutes.

Was Beyonce's Super Bowl performance really political or just another clever career move?

Bruce Springsteen at Croke Park dates SOLD OUT in 2 hours, tickets being re-sold for up to €1200
