Could Canadian crooner Michael Bublé be making some beautiful new music in Dublin during his stay here?

The Grammy-winning star stunned staff at the Beacon studio on Dublin’s Baggot Street after popping in for a private recording session ahead of his two-night run at the 3 Arena.

“Look who dropped into the studio this afternoon,” a staff member wrote on its Twitter page, along with a picture of the smiling star sporting a Giants baseball hat and a set of headphones around his neck.

While confirming that Bublé was indeed in their facility this week, the Beacon was keeping their cards close to their chest when asked about the nature of his work and declined to divulge any more details.

He took to the stage at the northside’s 3 Arena last night to play the first of two concerts to his legions of Irish fans as he promoted his latest studio album, Love.

The singer/songwriter has sold over 60 million records worldwide and has picked up some four Grammys and multiple Juno Awards during his memorable career.

Bublé took a huge step back from the limelight after his eldest son Noah with wife Lusiana Lopilato was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016 when he was just five years old.

However, the brave youngster battled hard and in a statement released a year later, Bublé said that his son was “progressing well” after his treatment and that doctors were “optimistic” about his future.

Meanwhile, Irish music fans are in a for a real treat this weekend with a plethora of live music gigs to choose from - with tickets still available for several.

Derry rockers Snow Patrol will take to the stage at Malahide Castle this evening to perform for their fans, ahead of 1980’s icons The Cure performing on Saturday night.

Thousands more music aficionados will be making the pilgrimage to Slane Castle to see Metallica rocking out in the Meath venue, supported by Ghost, Stiff Little Fingers, Bokassa and Fangclub.
