It has been confirmed that Bruce Springsteen will be bringing his 2012 tour to Ireland.

Hector announced on his 2fm show this morning that The Boss will take to the stage at the RDS in Dublin on the 17th of July 2012.

Tickets for the concert are due to go on sale next Thursday at 9am.

Three of Springsteen’s last four albums, Devils & Dust (2005), Magic (2007) and Working On A Dream (2009), have topped the charts in Ireland and the tickets for his 2009 show at the RDS sold out in just 15 minutes.
