But if you are going along, you should watch this press conference that took place today regarding the security and traffic arrangements for the two concerts.

There won't be any support act and with the doors opening at 5 o'clock and Bruce expected on stage at 7pm the organisers have appealed for people to arrive early.

Officials have advised that people planning on travelling to Dublin on the day should double their normal travel time as the capital will be busy with the concert taking place close to rush hour on Friday.

Organisers have said punters should travel to Corke Park using public transport and can plan their journey on the Transport for Ireland website.

People have also been told to prepare for the unpredictable weather. With rain a possibility, they've asked attendees not bring umbrellas but instead carry raincoats or plastic macs to protect from the rain.

They've also warned that there won't be a cloak room facility and have urged fans not to bring big rucksacks or bags that will cause a problem at the gates.

And if you are going, enjoy it. We're not jealous...swear.
