There Were Mixed Reactions To Ed Sheeran's Gig In The Phoenix Park Last Night17th May 18 | Entertainment News
People were not happy with how the event was organised
Oh Ed! Where did it all go wrong. You were on such a pedastel that the people of Ireland gladly let you call yourself one of their own. I mean we didn't even bat an eyelid when you stole the name of our national anthem(Galway Girl) and wrote a terrible tune around it. Hell we even applauded you for it. 'Sure look at Ed, isn't he great' we'd say.
So after what should have been a triumphant concert in the Phoenix Park last night why are so many people angry? Well the fault may not actually lie with the tossle haired troubadour's performance, It looks like the organisation or lack there of may be the problem.
As can happen with these events, the experience from the stage isn't always comparable to the experience of the crowd as Ed seems to have enjoyed himself, oblivious to the backlash.
I've been to many concerts in Phoenix park but I've never been to one as poorly organised as Ed sheeran. 50% of the crowd couldn't fit inside the venue and inside there was a crowd crush. Worst concert I've ever been to. #edsheerandublin— Emma Scanlon (@Emma5Scanlon) May 16, 2018
I am sorrrryyyyy but Phoenix Park for a gig is the worst place. So disappointed after seeing @edsheeran there tonight, he sounded great but the standing was a disgrace!!! Basically waisted €86 to see nothing. #EdSheeranDublin @aikenpromotions— Karla Bennett (@KarlaBennett29) May 17, 2018
Can anyone please explain why seated tickets have choice of 3 burger vans, whilst standing ticket holders have choice of much much more. Not fair! Any valid reason? #edsheerandublin— grainne pinaqui (@docmum) May 16, 2018
@edsheeran @aikenpromotions for anyone going 2 the remaining ed Sheeran gigs in the Phoenix park, have a serious rethink. Worst organised event ever. Serious issues in relation to crowd control. Genuinely thought my son was going to be crushed to death. #EdSheeranDublin— ✨ Nicola_McD ✨ (@NicolaMcDevitt) May 17, 2018
When this is the layout for #EdSheeranDublin in Phoenix Park and you get this.. absolutely ridiculous and they also added a merch stand directly in the middle of the crowd which blocked the stage completely, from start to finish I couldn’t see ed at all. pic.twitter.com/96rvIfLcco— Karla Bennett (@KarlaBennett29) May 17, 2018
Some advice for anyone heading to #edsheeran over the next few days in the Phoenix Park, the entrances are really poorly signposted. And staff not 100% sure of routes. Plenty of people ended up at incorrect entrances today. Also very limited services in seated areas...— Aine Mc Manus (@ainemm91) May 16, 2018
So for those of you attending Friday's gig... you have been warned. Turn up early and sober if you want to arrive in the venue with your sanity intact.
