Comments: Originally planned to be the last show of the 2015 Innocence + Experience tour, tonight's show instead is the last show of U2's four-concert run in the band's Dublin hometown. That's because the band recently rescheduled the two Paris concerts (for December 6-7) that were postponed by the recent terrorist attacks there.

These are the first indoor tour concerts that U2 has played in Dublin since the Lovetown tour in 1989, and tonight's show was very much a hometown and home country celebration. Rather than bringing a fan on-stage for "Mysterious Ways" and the Meerkat segment, U2 brings up Panti Bliss -- aka, Rory O'Neil, an Irish drag queen and gay rights activist -- to huge crowd applause. Bliss dances with Bono throughout the song, and then the crowd reaction goes a level higher when Irish singer Imelda May comes on stage to perform "Desire." All of this seems to jumpstart the crowd, which sings loudly and enthusiastically through the next song, "Angel Of Harlem," even though it had to be restarted because one of Edge's guitar strings broke right at the start.

The show ends with the powerful, fan-fave combo of "Bad" and "40" -- the third straight show where "Bad" has been played. "40" is dedicated to Dennis Sheehan, U2's longtime tour manager who died in May while U2 was in the U.S. for the first leg of the tour. Bono says Sheehan's family and friends are at the gig, and the emotional performance ends with fans singing "How long to sing this song?" well after the band has left the stage.
