Jake Clemons of the E Street Band will play an intimate solo gig in Dublin later this year.

Bruce Springsteen's saxophonist - who joined the band when his uncle Clarence passed away in 2011 - will play Whelan's on May 10th in support of his recently-released album 'Fear & Love'.

He'll also play Belfast's Empire Music Hall on May 11th, Dolan's of Limerick on May 12th, and Cork's Cyprus Avenue on May 13th.

Speaking from Australia, where he's currently on tour with Springsteen, he said: "I am stoked to be returning to Ireland to perform the new songs from Fear & Love , plus favourites from my previous releases for everyone in the beautiful country of Ireland.”

Tickets for the Dublin gig are €23 and on sale from usual outlets this Friday at 9am.
