If you missed U2, here are some of the best bits from their homecoming gig in Croke Park

The crowd was treated to a spectacular tri-colour themed fly-past


LARRY MULLEN JUNIOR got one of the biggest cheers of the night during U2′s triumphant homecoming show at Croke Park on Saturday night – the drummer took a break from the kit to send his love to the crowd (and show off his specially commissioned t-shirt).

Earlier in the evening, the crowd was treated to a spectacular tri-colour themed fly-past, just as the band launched into their barnstorming, 11-song Joshua Tree set with Where The Streets Have No Name.

Official footage from the band’s hometown gig has just been released this morning. The Joshua Tree 30th anniversary tour hits Paris tonight and they’ll finish up the European leg of the tour next week, before a string of further dates in America in the autumn.
