WATCH: Incredible Moment U2 Concertgoers Get A Special Surprise In The Skies


U2 returned to Dublin last night for their homecoming gig of the Joshua Tree Tour, and boy did they put on a show.

Concentrating on showing off just their songs for the first half with no lightshow or display behind the band, things really kicked off with Where The Streets Have No Name.

A full digital backdrop of 1,040 individual video panels, the largest LED screen ever used in a touring show, featured shots of a plane landing on a runway for their well-known hit.

And then, something special happened.

Four planes, U2’s “special hometown guests”, swooped down over the stadium with their trails of green, white and gold, for a seriously spectacular tricolour flyover.

This looked INCREDIBLE.

Trust Bono and the lads to pull out all the stops for this one. Fair play.
