A guy clapped so hard at U2 in Dublin last night he lost his wedding ring

And a woman wore her wedding dress.

THERE WAS A lot of clapping at U2′s second gig in Dublin’s 3Arena last night.

One guy may have been a little bit too vigorous though, literally clapping his wedding ring off.

Enda Bolger was standing at the back of the venue beside the VIP area when the ring went flying, but it wasn’t until he got home that he noticed it was gone.

And he still hasn’t found what he’s looking fo… SORRY! SORRY!

Meanwhile this woman was not only wearing a wedding ring but a wedding dress at last night’s gig.


The women, a Canadian fan, told that she was wearing her dress as part of a ‘trash the dress’ tradition that’s popular in the US and Canada.

She had been waiting twenty years to see U2 in Dublin, so what better time to get 17 pints poured all over the crisp white fabric.
