Bruce Springsteen has added an extra Dublin date to his world tour in 2023.

The Born to Run singer is set to play at the RDS Arena next May, with performances set for Friday 5 May, Sunday 7 May, and now, Tuesday 9 May.

Over 70,000 people were in the online queue to get tickets for the first two dates when tickets went on sale on Friday morning (27 May).

Standing tickets for all of the gigs cost €131, with tickets in the stands ranging from €96 to €156 each.

“After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year," Springsteen said.

"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.”

The two nights in the RDS will mark Springsteen's first gig in Ireland in seven years, since the The River Tour came to Croke Park in May 2016.

The band is set to perform across Europe all summer long, with dates confirmed in Barcelona, Paris, Ferrara, Rome, Amsterdam, Landgraaf, Zurich, Düsseldorf, Gothenburg, Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vienna, Munich, and finishing in Monza.

Additional cities in the UK and Belgium are set to be announced at a later date.

The tour marks Bruce and the E Street Band's first trip since reconnecting on Saturday Night Live in December 2020.

Springsteen is renowned for playing near three-hour long concerts, with huge setlists covering 50 years of music.

Ireland has been the home to many a legendary Springsteen gig, with his two-hour show at The Point Theatre (now the 3Arena) in 2006 being released as the live album Live In Dublin.
