U2 were back on their old stomping ground last night and none other than Michael D Higgins was in attendance to welcome them home.
The newly elected President of Ireland rocked out to the lads at Dublin’s 3Arena alongside his wife, Sabina.
Pre-concert, Mr Higgins posted this backstage photo of himself with the band.
To thank him for popping along, Bono dedicated a song to him while on stage.
And the lead singer wasn’t the only person excited about his attendance, a rapture of applause was heard as he took his seat.
