Whilst in the middle of their U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere residency, Bono and co still had time to send a message of goodwill to the Irish Rugby team.

U2 sent this message to the Andy Farrell’s side, who face New Zealand in their World Cup quarter final tonight.

While the classic Cranberries’ hit ‘Zombie’ has been heard across a sea of green, following many of Ireland’s victories in this tournament, most notably their win over South Africa a few weeks ago, another iconic Irish band U2 were also quick to wish them the best, all the way from Las Vegas.

“This is living– U2 Tell The Audience

Footage of this message to the Irish team from U2, which you can also check out below, shows Bono and co walking onto the Vegas Sphere stage, before delivering this powerful message to the Boys in Green.

“We’re playing support to the greatest band ever, from our stage in Las Vegas to your stage in Paris…”, Bono said. “This is living. This is live”.

Bono also added, “Come on Ireland!! Ireland, Ireland. Together standing tall”.

Having launched the opening night of this ground-breaking residency earlier this month, U2 also added a further 17 dates to their initial shows. Check them out here.

Elsewhere, the band also hinted that music could be released soon. 

“Well, I think new music, new tunes,” The Edge said. “There’s a lot that we have ready and some that need a little dusting off, but will be ready soon. I tell you, we’ve got some amazing new songs. Really exciting”. 

Lead singer Bono added, “Edge has about 100 in the bag. I have about 20… but [bassist] Adam [Clayton]’s got something to contribute”.
