From the poll we have also learned the most anticipated gigs of 2017. Coldplay top the poll in Croke Park for the most anticipated gig followed by Robbie Williams at the Aviva Stadium. Electric Picnic, Drake and Radiohead are also getting fans excited for their 2017 gigs.

The International Ticket of the Year went to Coldplay for the first leg of their Head Full of Dreams Tour. Speaking about the honour, frontman Chris Martin said, "We’re honoured to receive the Ticketmaster Ticket of the Year award. Thank you to everyone who voted for us.
