More excitement ahoy than an All Ireland football final

Who said something about a five in a row?

It’s on! After the made-up rumours last year, the best live band in the business are on their way to the northside of Dublin. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band bring The River tour to Croke Park on Friday May 27. Tickets go on sale on Thursday February 11 (no ticket price mentioned in press release or on Ticketmaster site – will update when available). This is much better news for most OTR readers than four weeks of general election guff, right?

UPDATE: Tickets for the Croker show range are €131, €116 and €65.45 (seated) and €98.50 (standing). All prices subject to Ticketmaster’s additional Johnstown Company taxes and charges)

If you haven’t done so already, it’s well worth checking out the official site and the impressive archive back calalogue of live show downloads (including this freebie).
