Both dates for Bruce Springsteen's Croke Park gigs have sold out this morning after two hours.
Fans had an anxious wait as they struggled to bag tickets to The Boss's May 27 date at Croke Park.
Tickets officially went on sale at 9am but some fans reported facing wait times of 45 minutes or more on Ticketmaster.ie before their tickets were confirmed.
Tickets were priced at €65.45, €116 or €131 for seating and €98.50 for standing tickets.
However, many fans were rewarded for their patience and bagged tickets to The River Tour gig at GAA HQ.
Tickets for a second date on May 29 went on sale at 9.30am and tickets for May 27 had completely sold out by 10am with May 29 also selling out around 11am.
The gigs are set to be the biggest of the summer and constitute two of the three dates allowed at Croke Park every year.
Beyonce bagged the third slot with her gig at the city centre venue on July 9.
