He announced tour dates in Dublin, Belfast, Kilkenny and Cork.
And fans were absolutely and utterly delighted!
However, they were left a little taken aback when they saw the prices of the tickets.

He will first take to the stage in Belfast at the outdoor arena Boucher Road on May 9th. This show saw tickets being sold for €145.
Bruce’s second show is at Nowlan Park in Kilkenny, and if you want to see the man himself you’ll have to pay €143.80 for standing tickets while all seats are on sale for €168.80.
He’ll then head down to Cork’s Páirc Uí Chaoimh show which sees seats ranging from €153.80 to €168.80, while standing tickets are being sold at €143.80.
It may come as no surprise but Bruce will finish the Irish leg of his tour in Croke Park. And the tickets ain’t cheap! Standing tickets are going for €143.80 and seats are being sold for €153.80 or €168.80.
Fans took to social media to share their discontent.
#brucespringsteen #kilkenny #prices. The price of the Bruce Springsteen tickets for May 2024 are just ridiculous. I want to go because I love his music but wtf. €168 seats and €143 standing. It’s Kilkenny not Las Vegas 😳

€163 each for the Cork gig. Scandalous really and the price doesn’t show until you get to the top of the thousands in the queue.

I’m really glad I saw Bruce Springsteen last time, but I’m noping on the ticket prices this time. He’s great, but it’s all getting a bit rich for my blood at €150 up per ticket in a monster stadium where most people are miles from the stage.

The last time Bruce came to town, seating tickets in the RDS went for between €96 and €156, while standing tickets were snapped up for €131 before fees.
Despite the unhappiness with the prices, Bruce managed to sell out Cork and Kilkenny in just 90 minutes.
Will you be going to see him?
