The band’s final Dublin show was not to be missed, with Bono referring to Panti as Dr Panti Bliss and saying, “Trailblazing on marriage equality in the country, now the country is trailblazing marriage equality in the world.”

“We are putting the gay into Gaelic,” he said.
“Would the queen of Ireland be able to take another queen walking beside her on the stage? Dublin’s very own queen of rock’n’roll, Imelda May. Here she comes.”
