Noisy Pink fined €50k for RDS gig

A €50,000 penalty was imposed after popstar Pink breached legal noise limits during her RDS concert, it has been revealed.

Dublin City Council levied the charge when testing showed the US singer exceeded acceptable levels last June.

In all, the council collected €110,000 in three years as a result of excessively loud concerts at the Ballsbridge venue.

The information was released to Labour councillor Kevin Humphreys after he tabled a question on the matter.

A bond is lodged by concert promoters with the local authority prior to gigs and if the noise levels are breached the cash is kept.

The council also retained €50,000 in bonds following performances by the Eagles, Rod Stewart and Bruce Springsteen at the RDS in June last year.

Last year, the council levied €36,000 in charges after U2 breached noise levels during their Croke Park gigs in July.
