Three Bruce Springsteen gigs sell out after thousands of fans rush to see The Boss

Bruce Springsteen  plays Dublin next year

Tickets have sold out for three Bruce Springsteen gigs in Dublin, organisers have confirmed.

A third date was added for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band in Dublin next year but tickets sold out for all three gigs by 10.30am.

Lots of people keen to see The Boss next May rushed to get their hands on tickets when they went on sale at 8am this morning. They play the RDS, Dublin next year and this morning announced a third gig on May 9. The additional concert is "due to demand" according to promoters Aiken. 

As of 10.30am, single tickets for each gig were unavailable on the Ticketmaster website, and organisers confirmed the events have fully sold out.

Ticketmaster said the site was "really busy" before tickets were released at 8am and said "tickets are likely to go quickly". A queueing system online saw reports on social media of up to 68,000 eager fans waiting to purchase their tickets for the May 5 and 7 2023 concerts.


However the queues were moving swiftly for many, with one fan noting he “started at 11,004 in the queue but had the Boss tickets in 10 minutes”. Another, however, lamented the “snail’s pace” of their queue. “23 mins queuing for Bruce Springsteen and moving at a snail’s pace,” they wrote.

Others reported the desktop site was quicker than the app when it comes to getting their hands on those coveted tickets.

Tickets cost €96 to €156 for seated, and €131 for standing (exclusive of fees).
