This could cause a huge amount of consternation for parents and children alike all over Ireland, taking into consideration the amount of sell-out concerts planned for One Direction in Croke Park, but promoters MCD have announced those under 14 will not be admitted to the pitch under any circumstances.
The band are due to play 3 sell-out gigs at the Dublin location this May, with many of the fans in the tween age bracket. However, promoters MCD have announced strict age limits have to be adhered to at all costs for safety measures to ensure the 80,000 seat venue health and safety regulations are met.
An MCD representative stated “If there is doubt whether a minor qualifies for age restrictions set out, proof of age may be requested. It is the responsibility of the adult accompanying the minor to be able to satisfy staff that the minor is the age they say," the Ticketmaster website outlines.
“The Where We Are world tour gigs sold out in minutes and some fans could be disappointed if they failed to pay heed to the terms. A spokesperson for Croke Park told the Herald: "We provide the venue for the concerts and the promoters then impose their own health and safety regulations.”
