Dave J Hogan/Getty Images for The Rolling StonesRolling Stones fans in Ireland are in for a treat this coming summer. The opening show of the European leg of the Band’s No Filter tour, in Dublin’s Croke Park, will likely be one the longest sets of the outing.

“I haven’t gotten length yet. It will be their longest set because they will try out different things. We figure two hours to two-and-a-half hours,” the Stones’ longtime production manager, Dale Skjerseth, tells Ireland’s Independent newspaper.

“They don’t have a permanent set yet. There are always the favourites and then they will add in. They keep themselves fit,” Skjerseth adds.

The May 17 show at Croke Park will be the Rolling Stones’ first performance in Ireland since a 2007 show at Slane Castle before 68,000 people.

“We start rehearsals next week and we are getting ready,” Skjerseth tells the Independent. “It’s a big show, we have 25 production trucks and we’re around two hundred people touring with the entourage. All the excitement is around the beginning, especially the guys.”
