Phil will take to the stage at the Aviva Stadium on June 25 next year as part of his highly anticipated comeback tour.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday December 20 at 9am and are priced at €89.50.

Phil has sold over 100 million records worldwide and we can't wait to see him back in action.



It's mighty cold out there lads, so we have the utmost respect for people heading to the match today (well, a few pints might warm you all up!).

And as our fair green isle gets ready to battle the great Down Under, here we have the best tweets from everyone heading along this evening.

Whether you're watching it in the pub or are already taking your seat in the Aviva Stadium, we hope you have the absolute craic tonight:

Good luck, lads!


Rugby legend Paul O'Connell said goodbye to the Aviva Stadium for the last time today, as he played his final game on Irish soil.

It may have been a disappointing 10-16 defeat to a strong Welsh side for Ireland, but spirits were still high as Paul was given a hero's farewell by the crowds of fans. The Irish number 5 even led his young son Paddy onto the pitch, holding him up to wave to the thousands crowding the stands.

Fans have been taking to social media in their droves to pay tribute to the Irish captain, and we're getting a little teary eyed saying our goodbyes…

Of course Paul's rugby career isn't quote over yet, as he has the Rugby World Cup ahead, with Ireland's first game against Canada taking place on September 19th.

"The fans have been incredible for us and throughout my career. I've had an amazing time. Hopefully they can add to it at the World Cup. There will be a lot of Irish people at the Irish games. Hopefully we can give them a better performance than that," Paul said today after conceding defeat to Wales.

Thanks for the memories, Paul!
