The shows will be his first in the UK and Ireland after the singer put his career on hold when his son was diagnosed with cancer.

Bublé and actress wife Luisana Lopilato announced their eldest son, Noah - then three, had been diagnosed with cancer in November 2016.

At the time, Bublé said they were "devastated" by the news, adding the couple were putting their "careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well".

Shortly afterwards, he pulled out of hosting the 2017 Brit Awards and also withdrew from a BBC Music event.

They have been updating fans on the youngster's recovery, and in April Lopilato told reporters the couple were "looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow".

Bublé has said of his upcoming Dublin show: "I can’t wait to come over to see my fans in Dublin and play Croke Park for my largest ever Irish show.

"You guys have been patient and I can't thank you enough for all your support. And for those of you that haven’t seen me live, well… I just haven’t met you yet!"
