Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have added a third show in Dublin next year due to major demand.
The American singer-songwriter had announced he would play the RDS in Dublin on May 5th and 7th in 2023 amid a string of other European tour dates, with tickets going on sale at 8am this morning.
There were reports on social media of up to 68,000 eager fans in a virtual queue for the tickets to what will be Springsteen and the E Street Band’s first live shows in six years.
As a result, concert promoters Aiken announced that a third date had been added for the RDS on May 9th 2023 “due to demand”.

“And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band.
“See you out there, next year — and beyond.”
