Bruce Springsteen's Irish Tour Archive

Bruce pictured above at Slane Castle in 1985 his first outing on Irish soil. I decided to compile his Irish tour history with the brilliant announcement of Bruce coming to my home town, Limerick next year. There maybe a few dates wrong but from what I can dig up it seems he had played Ireland twenty two times in the past. Most of these gigs have been played in the capital as he only ventured outside of Dublin three times. Once to play his first ever date in Slane Castle and twice in Belfast in 1996 and 2006.
