Statement from CPI Concert Promoters International and MCD
News last updated: 24-08-2007

back to news

While the majority of 17,000 fans who saw the legendary Barbra Streisand in
concert on Saturday 14th July, at Castletown House, enjoyed the show,
promoters regret that some ticket holders were unable to have a great
experience at this once in a lifetime event.

This was primarily due to adverse weather conditions, the worst in 100 years
which added an extra dynamic to the already difficult driving conditions as
a result of major road works on the M50 / N4 despite the implementation of
the approved Garda Traffic Management Plan for the event.

Months of planning and consultation with Kildare County Council and An Garda
Siochana, combined with an extensive media campaign over the past number of
weeks, and the placement of a significant number of full page advertisements
in national print and broadcast media including RTE Radio One and RTE 2FM
the media partners for the event; to warn concert goers of traffic
management strategies, some ticket holders encountered severe traffic jams
and car park delays.

In response to the traffic delays, Ms Streisand and promoters delayed her
onstage time by 45mins in order to accommodate late arrivals so fans could
enjoy the full show. Ms Streisand performed a set which lasted 2 hours
including 2 encores.

With 17,000 fans set to see Ms Streisand perform for the first time in
Ireland, cancelling the concert was not an option as it would not have been
possible to reschedule due to Ms Streisand's touring commitments. It was
felt that despite the less than perfect weather and traffic conditions her
fans would want the concert to go ahead.

Over 65% of customers who purchased tickets were also directly issued with a
special information guide including advice on travel and parking
arrangements, public transport and appropriate clothing and footwear. A
severe advanced traffic warning was issued to all media outlets and carried
on national radio from early Saturday.

Some fans who arrived late to the show encountered problems with their
designated seating. This was due to a small number of opportunistic fans
taking seats which were not assigned to them and refusing to move when
requested by authorities.

We would like to apologise to those who experienced any inconvenience in
relation to the above or any other issueand invite any concerned ticket
holder to write to;

Denis Desmond, Managing Director, MCD, 7 Park Road, Dun Laoghaire, Co.
Dublin

where concerns will be dealt with promptly.
