US band display giant Union flag during Country 2 Country gig in Dublin
Confusion reigned as the Country 2 Country three-day musical extravaganza kicked off in Dublin when US band Zac Brown Band unveiled a huge Union flag during their set.
The US group were headlining the first night of the three-day-event in Dublin's 3Arena.
Great version of Teenage Wasteland @zacbrownband but you'd wanna get that background sorted, ur in Ireland the union jack isn't our flag— Shonagh Byrne (@shonaghnibhroin) March 10, 2017
Country 2 Country is on from Friday March 10 to Sunday March 12 and sees the likes of Brad Paisley playing over the weekend.
However the headline act's performance was marred early on with the flag mix-up.
Those in attendance said that the crowd started to boo when the Union flag was displayed.
But fans said the band "redeemed" themselves as they were draped in a Tricolour at the end of the set.
