Taylor Swift didnt have a sell-out show, and it might have something to do with her pal, Ed Sheeran.
Croke Park, Ireland, had two Swift shows, and both Michael Buble and The Rolling Stones also performed at the GAA stadium, Dublin Live reports.
However, not one of the acts sold out the 80,000 capacity stadium, and according to the festivals director, Melvin Benn, the flame-haired singer is to blame.
He said: I guess I was surprised a little bit – theyre great acts. Maybe it was slightly the wrong time.
There has been a lot in Ireland this year and maybe thats a factor.
Some of the acts have been more than once. Ed Sheeran took a lot of money out of the market – it would be difficult to find someone in Ireland who didnt go to see Ed.
Ed Sheeran has been performing his nine shows across Ireland.
Benn is optimistic about this years Electric Picnic, which is gearing up to host some of the worlds biggest musicians.
Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa and Massive Attack are headlining, and tickets for the 55,000 capacity festival sold out just minutes after going on sale.
N.E.R.D, Ben Howard and Jungle are a handful of the many acts who will also be performing at the festival in Ireland.
The festival will take place in Stradbally in Laois from 31 August to 2 September.
