The broadcaster took to Twitter to tell his followers that he hopes to be in attendance at the highly anticipated concert which is set to take place on May 5 2023, in Dublin's RDS.

Thinking back to how singer Daniel O'Donnell sang one of Springsteen's songs at the top of Croagh Patrick during his Climb with Charlie event, it made him want to go more.

He added that he wants Land of Home and Dreams played at his funeral, saying: "On my bucket list. Yes I made it to the top of Croagh Patrick. Now hopefully I can survive to see Brucie next year. Remember Daniel O D sang one of his songs for me at the top of Croagh Patrick. And when the time comes I want 'Land of Home and Dreams' played at my farewell."

Naturally, followers flooded the comments with messages of support and well wishes, with many hoping he got his hands on some tickets.
