ROCK fans are celebrating the news that Bruce Springsteen (pictured) is set to play two more Irish dates next summer.
The Boss has added two further dates in Kilkenny's Nowlan Park to the three Irish concerts already confirmed in July for Cork, Limerick and Belfast.
The first three Irish concerts sold out in a matter of minutes last December.
The Kilkenny gigs, details of which were announced today, are to take place on July 27th and 28th.
The New Jersey rocker is bypassing Dublin for the first time since 2007 when he only played the Odyssey Arena in Northern Ireland as part of the initial leg of his 'Magic' tour.
The concert dates are Thomond Park in Limerick (July 16), Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork (July 18) and the King's Hall Arena in Belfast (July 20).
The planned Kilkenny concert will take place after Springsteen plays the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff as part of a sweeping European itiner- ary for his extended 'Wrecking Ball' tour, which began last March.
Tickets go on sale next Thursday, February 7th at 9am - priced at €90 for general admission and €100 for seated.
