The bank said in a statement that it was aware that some customers experienced difficulties with the app.

It comes as a number of accounts on social media complained that issues with the app had led to them missing out on purchasing tickets for upcoming Bruce Springsteen concerts.

The bank confirmed the issue has since been resolved and apologised to customers who were affected by the issue.

The veteran musician is set to play three nights at Dublin's RDS next year.

Tickets for two concerts went on sale at 8am on Friday morning, with a third date added soon after.

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.

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.

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.
