Nov 24th 2015, 9:30 AM 24,061 47

LAST NIGHT SAW U2 bring their tour home to Dublin for the first of four homecoming shows on their giant Innocence and Experience tour.

They played the 3Arena, their first indoor gig in the city for some time. And it was JAMMED.

Here’s the moment Bono took the stage.

The show opened with a projected scene, representing their bedrooms in north Dublin in the 1970s.

And then they started the hits.

A 25-song setlist began with Miracle (Joey Ramone) and closed with With Or Without You, Beautiful Day and One.

The scenes were pretty spine-tingling.

Were people into it? PEOPLE WERE SO INTO IT.

Bono held The Edge in his hand at one point. NBD.

Basically, would you look.

Bono and a girl called Josie from California shared this moment on stage.

And finally, RTÉ posted this video of fans singing along during One. It’s pretty spine-tingling.
