Irish rockers U2 share emotional picture of huge crowd at homecoming Dublin gig but one fan really stands out

ONE cheeky fan stood out when rockers U2 tweeted a picture of the adoring crowd staring back at them at their emotional homecoming Dublin gig last night.

The Irish rock legends produced an amazing performance of The Joshua Tree in front of 80,000 delighted revellers at Croke Park to celebrate the album’s 30th anniversary.

During the massive gig which was packed with renditions and stunning visual, the pop legends took a photo of the adoring crowds in front lapping up every second.

They then posted the image on Twitter, writing “full house tonight”.

Everyone seems to be responding ecstatically with their arms raised and beaming smiles – expect one guy.

He’s easy to miss at first glance in the sea of adoring fans, but this reveller in the bottom middle is doing something different with hands.

They are not being thrust into the air like thousands alongside.

Instead the fan appears to be making a rude gesture back to the U2, reported the Irish Mirror.


We’re sure he was still having an amazing time, as U2 performed in front of a striking red background with a silhouette of a tree.

Hits from the 1987 album include Where The Streets Have No Name, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, and With Or Without You.

They were supported by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, and celebrity concertgoers included actor Colin Farrell and ex-Premier League football star Robbie Keene.

The tour takes in dates in Europe, America, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Brazil.
