Taylor Swift didn’t have a sell-out show, and it competence have something to do with her pal, Ed Sheeran.

Croke Park, Ireland, had dual Swift shows, and both Michael Buble and The Rolling Stones also achieved during a GAA stadium, Dublin Live reports.

However, not one of a acts sole out a 80,000 ability stadium, and according to a festival’s director, Melvin Benn, a flame-haired thespian is to blame.

He said: ‘I theory we was astounded a small bit – they’re good acts. Maybe it was somewhat a wrong time.

‘There has been a lot in Ireland this year and maybe that’s a factor.

‘Some of a acts have been some-more than once. Ed Sheeran took a lot of income out of a marketplace – it would be formidable to find someone in Ireland who didn’t go to see Ed.’

Ed Sheeran has been behaving his 9 shows opposite Ireland.

Benn is confident about this year’s Electric Picnic, that is gearing adult to horde some of a world’s biggest musicians.

Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa and Massive Attack are headlining, and tickets for a 55,000 ability festival sole out only mins after going on sale.

N.E.R.D, Ben Howard and Jungle are a handful of a many acts who will also be behaving during a festival in Ireland.
