Fans say U2’s 3Arena gig like a ‘pub show’

Tags: ,

Fans said that U2’s 3Arena homecoming gig was “like a pub show”, saying the gig was so intimate it was like you were in Bono’s house.

U2 super fan Beth Nabi, who travelled from the States to see all four 3Arena gigs, told TEN after the gig: “It was special. U2 were so well received and you could tell they were so happy to be here playing for that home crowd.”

Her partner Chris LeClere said: “After seeing them in all the other cities and all the other shows, this felt more like just a hometown show. It was like you were in a pub listening to a band on a stage and everybody’s just having a good time and getting into it.”

Beth added: “You felt like you were in Bono’s house”, with Chris interjecting: “You did, it wasn’t a big concert, it was a pub show from a group of guys who were just playing for fans and the fans loving them.

U2 frontman Bono has said he’s thrilled to be back on the Northside of Dublin and thanked fans for their patience and sticking with the band at the 3Arena on Monday night.

The homecoming gig is the first time Bono and the lads have played Dublin since 2009 at Croke Park and all four gigs this week on their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour are sold out with many travelling long journeys to see the famous foursome perform on home turf.
