Fans in full voice as Bruce Springsteen rocks Croke Park

Bruce Springsteen has kicked off the first of his two gigs in Croke Park this weekend.

Taking to the stage in front of 80 thousand people, just after 7pm, Springsteen shouted, "Hello Dublin! My god there's a lot of you!".

And, with traffic in the city set to be very heavy tonight - motorists are being warned to expect delays as a result of the sold out concert.

As well as the Springsteen gig in Croke Park, Ireland are playing the Netherlands in a friendly in the Aviva and there's an event at the Bord Gais Energy theatre.
