Steve Earle has announced a gig at Dublin's Olympia Theatre with his backing band The Dukes later this year.

The folk and country star will play the venue on October 25th, with support from The Mastersons.

Earle's career has spanned over three decades, scoring crossover hits with the likes of 'Galway Girl' (no, it's not a Mundy song), 'Copperhead Road' and 'Guitar Town'.

Tickets for the fully-seated gig are €38 including booking fee and on sale this Friday from usual outlets at 9am.
