Matt Damon went to see U2 (and for pints) in Dublin last night

Go on the lad.

The actor flew into Ireland yesterday to spend some time with his family, but it seems there was another reason he was in town.

Matt was spotted at U2′s penultimate 3 Arena gig last night, with TV presenter Diana Bunici posting a photo to Instagram along with boyfriend Steve Garrigan from Kodaline.

One of those nights 🙈 Hey Matt Damon, my favourite Martian 😜

Colin Farrell was rumoured to be there too, with Bono reportedly pausing proceedings to point out the two in the audience.

Is he following the band around? According to Twitter, there have been sightings of fanboy Matt at various dates on the band’s Innocence + Experience tour

He nominated Bono for the Ice Bucket Challenge last year, calling him his ‘favourite musician’. Cute.

Before the gig, he paid Baggot Street pub Doheny and Nesbitt a visit.
