Bono enjoyed a night off from performing with his own band to enjoy watching Harry Styles at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium.

The U2 star sat amongst the crowds, alongside his wife, Ali, and daughter Eve, as he watched the singer perform to 50,000 fans on Wednesday night.

Eve, who was spotted going for a dip with Styles at the Vico Baths earlier this week, posted on her Instagram Stories, “When the 1D tune drops” with a picture of her famous father and mother in the background.

American rock band Greta Van Fleet were also apparently in the crowd – they played their own gig at Dublin’s Fairview Park on Thursday night.

During the concert, Harry revealed he was once headbutted at a party he ended up at back in Tallaght, South Dublin.

The former One Direction star spotted a sign saying, “Tallaght house party?” during the gig and it instantly brought him back.

Recalling the story to the crowds in the Aviva Stadium, Harry said: “I’ve been to Tallaght once. Know what happened? I got headbutted. It was great, it was fantastic.”

The Watermelon Sugar superstar previously told this story while on tour with One Direction in Dublin.

He and Niall Horan were both at this house party in 2010 when the incident took place.

Back in 2015, Harry told his Irish audience: “About five years ago I
travelled over to Ireland with young Niall, we went to Mullingar, and we went to another party, didn’t we Niall”.

Asking Niall where the party was, Horan replied, “Tallaght”. Styles asked the Mullingar man, “What happened to me in Tallaght?” which Horan replied by saying, “Some fella stuck you a headbutt”.

Seeing the lighter side of the whole thing, Styles added: “I went to Tallaght one time and got the nut stuck on me, but luckily for him he managed to run away quickly, I could have had him if I wanted to but I’m a lover I’m not a fighter”.

Yesterday fan Caoimhe spoke to FM104’s Strawberry Alarm Clock, about making the sign, saying: “We did it in the queue actually because me and my cousin are up from Cork and I was telling her the story [of Harry being headbutted]. Then someone behind us had an extra piece of cardboard and a marker and they were like, ‘Does anyone want to make a sign? and I was like, ‘Oh, we will’.

Harry was spotted out and about in Dublin ahead of Wednesday night’s concert.

He shocked sea swimmers on Tuesday when he and girlfriend Olivia Wilde went for a swim at the Vico Baths, accompanied by Eve.
