U2’s fi­nal per­for­mance of their four con­certs at the 3 Arena in Dublin last night was a tri­umph for the home­com­ing band.

The Band were de­light­ing the crowd even be­fore the con­cert got un­der­way by sign­ing au­to­graphs for sev­eral fans wait­ing out­side the venue.

A long list of celebri­ties ar­rived for the show, in­clud­ing Cil­lian Mur­phy, Christy Turling­ton, John Bishop, Neil Jor­dan, Dakota Fan­ning, Shane McGowan, Jim Sheri­dan and Ryan Tubridy.

Artists from The Joshua Tree ‘New Roots’ al­bum got a big wel­come at the venue.

The sell out crowd lapped up a setlist that spanned four decades of hits drawn heav­ily from their most re­cent al­bums.

Last night’s con­cert was planned as the fi­nale of In­no­cence and Ex­pe­ri­ence tour but the band will now head for Ber­lin for the tour’s fi­nal per­for­mance on Tues­day night af­ter a Septem­ber gig was aban­doned when Bono’s voice failed.
