MCD, Part 2: AC/DC’s Highway To Hell

with 3 comments

The story just trundles on. AC/DC played Punchestown last night – in a gig that seems to have been sold out since Jesus was knee-high to a grasshopper – and somehow MCD manage to cock up the bus situation again.

Peter blogs over on

The problem? It baffles me how it existed. I don’t know how it took a bus almost 4 hours to get ***near*** Punchestown. I then walked ran approximately 3 kilometres along with so many others who had missed the entire support acts [plural], afraid we would miss ACDC as well. So at least I got to see ACDC you say….? Yes that still remains. And always will. Never mind the 20 minutes Q to get a pint of beer.

Whatever about the 20-minute queue – I missed almost the entire Prodigy hour-long set at Slane in the queue – it’s good to see that MCD are keeping up traditions by learning from none of their mistakes. Thank Christ I’m not going to Oxegen.

Edit: Adding a link to the thread on the subject. Hasn’t quite reached the gargantual proportion of the Slane thread but that’s not to say it still won’t…

Edit 2: Ian Healy also has his two cents.

  2. […] MCD expert Gav also has more reportage of it. (Say this to the sound of someone doing morse code) […]

  3. Well at least you only had to walk 3 km we walked for 2 hours and got my foot ran over by a trailer! What a nightmare €83 to see AC DC no Thin Lizzy. A guy near us was knocked unconcious for at least 10 minutes no medical help (if there was any to be found) could get to him. It took an hour to find our bus after the concert and another hour to get out of Punchestown. First and last time I will ever go to Punchestown. Venue is not suitable for traffic for 10 000 people not talk about 70 000. “Punchestown” DON’T BOTHER!!
