Bryan Adams has confirmed a Dublin date for next May.
Taking place on 21 May next year, the date is part of the Canadian rocker’s ‘So Happy It Hurts’ Tour, with tickets going on sale Friday (Oct 13) at 9am.
You could be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets before Friday’s date, by tuning into Marty@Work with Marty Miller this week, where you could also get your hands on a signed takamine guitar.
News of this date in the capital comes after Adams had initially announced a run of US dates, as part of the ‘So Happy It Hurts’ Tour.
These tour dates which began in June, saw Adams supported by singer Joan Jett. More on this from Nova here.
Along with Dublin, Bryan Adams will also perform in Belfast’s SSE Arena the following day. The singer shared this news via his X account, formerly known as Twitter.

“can be taken away”
This tour will also see Adams continue to promote his album ‘So Happy It Hurts’, which arrived earlier this year.
“The pandemic and lockdown really brought home the truth that spontaneity can be taken away”, Adams said in a press release.
“Suddenly all touring stopped, no one could jump in the car and go. The title song ‘So Happy It Hurts’ is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity and the thrill of the open road. The album of the same name touches on many of the ephemeral things in life that are really the secret to happiness and, most importantly, human connection”.
The album also includes the single ‘Kick Ass’, which featured comic legend John Cleese.
“Kick Ass begins with a John Cleese introductory sermon which sums up the song”, Bryan Adams said of the track at the time. “There’s not enough rock and roll in the world… end of! More guitars, more drums, join hands… let’s rock”.
