The 11-song album was produced by The National at Long Pond Studios in upstate New York and features guest appearances by Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers, and Sufjan Stevens. Formed in New York in 1999, The National’s last four albums have all been in the Top 5 in the UK charts, with 2017’s Grammy award-winning (for Best Alternative Album) Sleep Well Beast hitting Number 1.

Bellator MMA

Saturday, 23 September

The stage is now set for an unmissable Middleweight World Championship main event when undefeated champ Johnny “The Human Cheat Code” Eblen (13-0) and newly minted title challenger Fabian “The Assassin” Edwards (12-2) square off at 3Arena  on Saturday, September 23.

Eblen was on hand this past Friday night in Paris as Edwards put on a five-round clinic, emerging victorious over MMA icon Gegard Mousasi. Tensions heightened between Eblen and Edwards as the two stared each other down for the first time (click to watch) after the Birmingham product’s career-altering win. Fighting out of American Top Team in Florida, the 31-year-old Eblen has firmly established himself as the best middleweight in the world, but Team Renegade’s Edwards believes he can crack The Human Cheat Code and join his brother, Leon, as a World Champion atop the sport.

The first two supporting bouts for BELLATOR Dublin: Eblen vs. Edwards have been announced, with Wexford Ireland’s Brian Moore (16-9) moving up to featherweight as he hopes to wow his hometown fans once again when he takes on Brazil’s Otto Rodrigues (13-1), who enters the match on a 12-fight winning streak. Also taking place at 145-pounds, the proverbial “King of the North” will be decided when Denmark’s No. 6-ranked Mads Burnell (17-5) takes on German veteran and BELLATOR mainstay Daniel Weichel (42-14), ranked No. 10. Burnell most recently defeated Justin Gonzales (14-2) at BELLATOR 295 in Hawaii, while Weichel will strap on the gloves for his 18th fight with the promotion.


Wednesday, 27 September

Multi-platinum and Grammy Award winning rock band Muse continue their massive Will Of The People World tour this autumn, coming to 3Arena on Wednesday, 27 Septmber 2023. Joined by special guests Nova Twins. 

Muse’s latest album ‘Will Of The People’ shot straight to #1 on the UK Official Album Chart, making it the band’s seventh consecutive studio album to top the chart – a run which began back in 2003 with ‘Absolution’. The critically acclaimed ‘Will Of The People’ sold over 50,000 copies in its first week, a figure which means it sold more than the rest of the Top 10 combined.
