Coldplay have added a fourth night to their run at Croke Park next summer.
The band will play two dates at the end of August and two at the beginning of September.
The tickets went on presale this morning, with plenty of fans complaining about issues with the Ticketmaster website.
The presale began at 10am, with fans asked to register on the band’s website to get a code to secure early access to tickets.
Fans quickly took to social media to vent their frustration at Ticketmaster – with long digital queues, connection errors and loading icons scuppering their chances of success.
Has anyone actually got Coldplay tickets?! I can’t even get in the queue 😭😭😭

Newstalk Tech Correspondent Jess Kelly said many fans were disappointed.
“People had already registered to get access to a code to try and guarantee their tickets and people have been telling me on Twitter that they are, you know, 157,000th in the queue to get tickets," she said.
“Other people have been getting messages to say that the platform is at capacity.”

For its part, Ticketmaster has insisted the site is working properly today – and is asking users to try other browsers or other internet connections.
Fans who failed to get presale tickets today will have another chance when the rest go online at 10am on Friday.
