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.

The band is in Dublin, and there are two shows left. What rare song should they play? Obviously, A Sort of Homecoming! As our friends at U2 Gigs recorded, U2 appropriately played this fan favorite at Slane Castle on August 25, 2001, and again on November 16, 2001 in Oakland, CA (that time, because the fan onstage began playing it on guitar).
