  • Location / Dublin, Ireland
  • Venue / The O2

The first show by the band in this city since .

The first time at this venue since it reopened.

The venue is located on the North side of Dublin in the Docklands area right next to the River Liffey.

It was opened in December 2008 as the 3Arena following its renovation.

The original venue was first played by the band in 1992 as The Point Depot.

This show saw the return of 'Too Late For Love'. A longer set with 19 songs being played over 1hr 45mins. Dick Decent from the Cybernauts played keyboards on 'WLAHC'.

Last song printed as 'Let's Get Rocked (Long Ending)' on the setlist. It has a slightly longer outro than normal to end the show.

As with Scotland/Wales in 2008 the Irish national anthem was played at the start. Larry Mullen Jr from U2 attended the show with his son.
