Music legends, A-list celebrities and well-known Irish faces joined the band for a proper knees-up at the Liquor Rooms beneath the Clarence Hotel after their final Dublin show on Saturday night.

Hozier arrived in the same car as Bono and The Edge, Hollywood star Matt Damon was there with his wife Luciana Barroso, Noel Gallagher joined the party and Bono's actress daughter Eve Hewson also made an appearance.

Bono's wife Ali arrived with dad Terry Stewart, lesser-spotted power couple tech guru Paddy Cosgrave and model Faye Dinsmore also turned up and 2fm's Dave Fanning arrived with his son, Jack.

A host of stars turned up last night at the Clarence Hotel to celebrate the last night of U2's Innocence & Experience Tour with a afterparty in The Liquor Rooms beneath the Hotel.

Charity boss Adi Roche also joined the party as did Hothouse Flowers singer Liam O Maonlai.

Never one to miss a shindig, Keith Duffy partied the night away with his wife Lisa. The most glamorous bash Dublin has seen in years also played host to Gavin Friday, Guggi, John Rocha, former manager Paul McGuinness, Bono's brother Norman and his wife Geraldine. The show didn't disappoint as Panti Bliss and Imelda May joined U2 on stage.

Calling her Dr Panti Bliss, Bono welcomed her onstage saying: "Trailblazing on marriage equality in the country, now the country is trailblazing marriage equality in the world".

Bono said that the passing of marriage equality act made him feel "so proud to be Irish".

"We are putting the gay into Gaelic," he added.

"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."

Imelda joined U2 and Panti on stage for a rendition of Desire.

Bono also paid special tribute to tour manager Dennis Sheahan, who passed away earlier this year.

A video montage played of the manager dancing and posing for photographs while Bono explained that he was a huge support for the band.

The band will close their Innocence + Experience world tour with two gigs in Paris on December 6 and 7.
