Irish fans of iconic rock group The Rolling Stones will hopefully be getting *satisfaction* after all.
In music to the ears of rock n' rollers all over Ireland, The Rolling Stones are set to play Dublin's Croke Park on May 17th.
It will be the group's first Irish show since they played Slane Castle in 2007.
Yet there is one thing holding them back - the onus is now on
Dublin City Council to grant a license for the gig to go ahead.
Aiken Promotions will be promoting the concert, as part of the band’s ‘No Filter’ tour which will also hit up cities in the UK, Germany, France, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
Residents living in the Croke Park area are expected to express opposition to the proposed gig (for anyone who doesn't remember the Garth Brooks fiasco of 2014, see
Residents routinely object to the stadium hosting more than three concerts a year - the maximum allowed under planning
permission granted by An Bord Pleanála.
With two dates for Taylor Swift and one for Michael Bublé already on the bill for this summer, there could be an issue with The Rolling Stones gig.
However, Dublin city dwellers remain hopeful that the concert will go ahead.

I'm excited for the Rolling Stones in Dublin, but there's no license yet, so I'm staying grounded for now. I stayed out nearly a whole day for a Garth Brooks ticket 4 years ago. And we all know what happened then! — 🎬Paul Berney🎵 (@Paul_Berney)

I can’t believe the Rolling Stones have announced a date to play in Dublin! My partner has been waiting for this day to see the Rolling Stones live for over 20 years! I have been checking the upcoming concerts for few months since I knew you might be coming to perform Eire!— Estela (@CuiEstela)
