It's hard to keep The Boss away from these shores, isn't it? Bruce Springsteen is just a few months removed from his most recent Irish shows in the RDS and he's already announced his next three Irish gigs.

Springsteen will play Limerick's Thomond Park on 16th July next, Cork's Pairc Ui Chaomich on 18th July and Belfast's Kings Hall Arena on 20th July. Tickets will go on sale on Thursday 6th December at 9am.

Springsteen's Wrecking Ball Tour was recently awarded the Top Draw prize by Billboard Magazine for having the top concert tour attendance of any artist in 2012. Wrecking Ball was released earlier this year and became Springsteen's tenth #1 album in the US, as well as topping the charts all across Europe.

Tickets for the Limerick and Cork shows are priced between €90 and €100.
