welcome tribute to Taylor Swift for Dublin shows

welcome tribute to Taylor Swift for Dublin shows

The different stages of Taylor Swift’s European tour do not go unnoticed, both for the reactions of the fans (the Italians are already preparing for the concerts in San Siro on July 13 and 14) and for the stars who participate or express themselves about the passage of pop stars, from Paul McCartney and the British royals to Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters. U2 has now been added to the list of artists or public figures who did not remain indifferent to the arrival of the voice of “Anti-Hero” in their country.

Tonight – June 29 – and tomorrow Taylor Swift will hold two concerts in Dublin, and in view of her arrival in their city, Bono and his companions have decided to welcome the singer with a bouquet of flowers, accompanied by a handwritten note and signed by his “Irish fan club”, Bono, the Edge, Adam (Clayton) and Larry (Mullen Jr.), which reads: “Dear Taylor, welcome back to our city… will you please leave everything intact?!!! “.

Swift captioned the image of the gift she received: “I can already feel the Irish welcome. Thank you U2 for always being the most elegant and coolest.”

Last week, the European leg of Taylor Swift’s Eras tour, fresh off the release of her new album The Tortured Poet’s Department (here’s our review ), stopped for three dates at London’s Wembley Stadium, attracting several famous people in the audience. From a few miles away, however, the singer also spotted a quick prank from Dave Grohl, onstage at the London Stadium with his Foo Fighters (here’s our story from the band’s second London date, when the frontman had fun bringing up the pop star’s name a few times).

The pop star appears to have responded indirectly to Kurt Cobain’s former friend the following evening, straight from the Wembley stage, by complimenting his musicians. There are several theories among fans about Grohl’s release against Swift, with some also recalling that months ago, the singer’s fans (the Swifties) harshly attacked the musician’s daughter, Violet, for speaking out against his massive use of air transportation during the tour dates.
