Hot on the heels of the news that Westlife will play Croke Park next year, it's now being rumoured that Jon Bon Jovi and co will rock the Dublin stadium next summer too.
The New Jersey rockers Bon Jovi looks to visit our shores in 2019 as part of their 'This House Is Not For Sale' tour.
"Bon Jovi and Westlife are both booked in for dates in Croke Park," an inside source connected with Croke Park told the Irish Mail on Sunday. "I would imagine an announcement regarding the Bon Jovi concert will be made over the coming weeks."
"They have a big touring show and Croke Park will be the perfect fit for them. Bands like the Stones and JBJ love the size of Croke Park because it means they don’t have to scale down their shows and can still play to a large audience."
Bon Jovi last played Ireland when they rocked Slane Castle in June 2013.
Join Bon Jovi said life on the road is "much more civil” these days compared to those crazy times back in the 1980s.
"In truth I think that we pace it a lot better than we did in the beginning," he told Sky News recently.
“When you’re a kid and you have nothing else to do and nowhere else to go, living out of a suitcase is not only romantic but it’s smart because you need to go out there and learn to work in front of audiences around the globe.
“That’s how we cut our teeth. We weren’t afraid of doing 240 shows in a tour in a year and then doing it again the next year… I have no desire to do that any longer.
“So these are much more civil… I don’t feel the need or the desire to live out of a suitcase as much.”
