    Just had a look and there's no dates announced for this year, not really surprising he's just done a world tour.

    Probably have to wait until 2010 to see him in Ireland.

    The rumour was a European tour starting in february, with Bruce back in the US by june. Cant see that happening but the new album could very well mean a new tour. Fingers crossed. :)

    Rumoured to be playing O2 Dublin in late feb

    as posted on another thread, i have seen provisional dates on the backstreets forum but i underline they are only rumor. if rumors are to be believed its going to be te 14th and 15th of feb at the o2.

    Rumours are that Bruce will start his tour (which is definitely going ahead according to Steve van Zandt) in the US in March and will hit Europe in the summer (a Glastonbury appearance is a strong rumour). According to Backstreets.com:
    http://www.backstreets.com/btx/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=129113, dates have been confirmed for Scandinavia in June and July.

    He always includes Ireland, so hopefully he won't pass us by this year. However, because of other commitments the drummer, Max Weinberg, has on US TV, it is thought that the tour will be a short tour. So we probably won't get three shows like last year - maybe only one (Croker, perhaps).

    Not official but looks like July 12th in the RDS.

    Thats a Sunday night, so maybe a Saturday night and Friday? But he is in Denmark on the 8th (also not official).

    He has been confirmed for Pinkpop with the E Street Band. http://www.pinkpop.nl/page.php?pagID=419

    Also found this
    Bruce Springsteen is set to play a slew of European stadium dates this summer.

    Full details of the live dates are yet to be announced, but
    Billboard reports that the singer will play gigs in Tampere, Finland (June 2), Stockholm (4, 5), Bergen (9, 10) and Herning (8).

    Springsteen releases a new album, 'Working On A Dream', on Monday (January 26). It is strongly rumoured that he will play at the Glastonbury festival for the first time in June

    Just scored a ticket for the Munich gig,although another 3 night stand in Dublin would be class :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,685 ✭✭✭Tom65


    Stockholm in June. Fantastic. I can catch those shows (if I can figure out how to buy tickets from the website in Swedish), then hopefully another two in Dublin in July.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,216 ✭✭✭✭Mushy


    It appears as if its stadiums...would Croke Park be in with a shout?

    He played stadiums on the Magic tour (Emirates, Old Trafford, San Siro, Nou Camp etc.) and played the RDS here, so I'd say it'll probably the RDS again.

    That said, I would love a Croke Park gig (or two...or three...). Not being a big Boyzone or Westlife fan, I haven't seen a gig there yet.

    Possibly Punchestown?


  • Registered Users Posts: 936 ✭✭✭HorseRadish


    Rumours of a headline slot at Glasto this year...


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,216 ✭✭✭✭Mushy


    Possibly Punchestown?

    Isn't Punchestown associated with the promoters? Aiken normally have Bruce don't they? Although that may also put a hole in me saying Croke Park at the same time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 246 ✭✭floyd333

    €96 for a seated ticket! That is extortionate. Has Bruce not heard of all this recession stuff!?
