You won't be able to take your eyes off this drone footage of Croke Park being transformed ahead of U2's sold-out gig on Saturday.

Bono and the boys will take to the stage at 8:30pm on Saturday to a crowd of over 80,000.

This drone footage by Nahuel Gutierrez shows the stage being set up as they're set to rock the stadium.

The doors will open at around 5pm, with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds taking to the stage.

Strict security checks will be in operation and concert-goers are strongly advised to bring bags no larger than A4-size.

Glass, cans, umbrellas, alcohol, garden furniture, selfie sticks and flares are among the items that are banned from being taken into the stadium.

Revellers are encouraged to use public transport when travelling to and from Croke Park, with at least two hours' extra travel time recommended.

The 2017 Tour, playing to 2.4 million fans in 51 shows across Europe and North and South America, features the complete Joshua Tree album played in sequence and a selection of highlights from U2's extensive catalogue of songs.

Dutch photographer, film-maker and long-term U2 collaborator Anton Corbijn has re-visited Death Valley and Zabriskie Point to create films which will be shown during the concert.
