*Look away if you want tonight's gig to stay a special surprise*

Right, so - on to business. Fans heading to tonight's U2 concert in Croke Park can expect a pretty thrilling surprise when the band play 'Where The Streets Have No Name', as the Irish lads are bringing their digital backdrop to life.

Residents in the Croke Park area received text messages from concert organisers today to advise them that "a flyover will take place this evening as part of U2's concert in Croke Park."

The flyover is scheduled to take place at 9.10pm, and will involve three planes swooping down over the stadium. 

And why, you wonder? Well, it's all part of U2's phenomenal Joshua Tree tour.

Here's what a similar display looked like at their recent Kentucky concert...

While Croke Park would not confirm that the air display would be taking place, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), confirmed that a flyover has been approved and is planned for this evening's gig, while Bray Air Display stated that the flyover was nothing to do with their air display show.

They're gonna put on a serious show tonight. Welcome home U2.
