Donegal Springsteen fans born to run to Croker

Donegal fans of Bruce Springsteen will join thousands of people this weekend in Croke Park who are looking forward to two amazing shows from The Boss.

Springsteen takes to the stage at Croke Park on Friday and Sunday night and bookmakers BoyleSports has priced up some specials on the New Jersey rocker.

The curfew for Croke Park is 11pm and Bruce is known for his long performances. Despite taking to the stage at 7pm, it’s red hot at 4/7 that he will break it and play past 11pm, whilst it’s 5/4 that he will wrap up before the curfew kicks in.

BoyleSports has a market on which hit he will open Friday night’s concert with and it’s Meet Me In The City that is the warm favourite at 1/4. Badlands is next in the betting at 11/4 with Atlantic City priced at 11/2. Hungry Heart is a 9/1 chance with both Purple Rain and Born To Run on offer at 16/1.

Springsteen can be backed at 6/4 to bring a fan on stage to sing with him whilst it’s 7/2 that Bono makes a guest appearance and sings with him. It’s 1/3 that rain will fall at some stage on either night at Croke Park with no rain to fall at Croke Park on either night priced at 9/4.

Liam Glynn, BoyleSports’ spokesperson said: “Bruce Springsteen is set to entertain over 160,000 fans over two nights at Croke Park and despite coming on stage at 7pm our traders believe that he will sing past the 11pm curfew as suggested by the odds of 4/7.”

He added “Springsteen is tipped to open his Friday night show with Meet Me In The City and it’s 7/2 that Bono will turn up to belt out a song with the New Jersey Rocker.”
